Bird Stealing Bread Lyrics - Iron & Wine

Review The Song (3)

tell me, baby, tell me
are you still on the stoop
watching the windows close?
i've not seen you lately
on the street by the beach
or places we used to go

i've a picture of you
on our favorite day
by the seaside
there's a bird stealing bread
that i brought
out from under my nose

tell me, baby, tell me
does his company make
light of a rainy day?
how i've missed you lately
and the way we would speak
and all that we wouldn't say

do his hands in your hair
feel a lot like a thing
you believe in
or a bit like a bird
stealing bread out from under your nose?

tell me, baby, tell me
do you carry the words
around like a key or change?
i've been thinking lately
of a night on the stoop
and all that we wouldn't say

if i see you again
on the street by the beach
in the evening
will you fly like a bird
stealing bread out from under my nose?

Wasted Time | Reviewer: ruby | 9/14/09

i think its a song of a once in a lifetime chance., A boy too afraid to cross the boundaries of more than friends and a girl who was waiting for him to cross it., and when the boy finally was able to ball up his courage., they already drifted apart. So he is wondering of the what-could-have-been and if the girl still feels the same or has already move on with someone else.

to me it sound like a friend that never told the girl that he had feelings for her, and now that he sees her with someone else he thinks back to what he never told her, which is that he likes and cares for her.and he also thinks back to all the goos times they used to have.

Voice Mail | Reviewer: Kayla (14) | 7/8/09

I love this song. It's so sweet, one of the sweetest of his. The reason the title of this is voice mail is because it reminds me of what a boyfriend would send to his ex-girlfriend's voice mail. He broke up with her but saw her at some point and remembered that he loves her still and it was a terrible mistake. She's with someone that she seems to love and care for dearly and seems happy, as happy as ever, but he wants her. He doesn't want to break them up and yet he does, you know? He wants her to really assess both relationships and see if she's really happy, if what she has with him is real.
Again, it's sweet and I can't help but think up this story every time I listen to it. Sam Beam really makes you think up illustrations and big stories for songs that are unfortunately only 2 to 5 or 6 minutes long. I always just want it to never stop, but I never get my wish
