Harry Nilsson’s Daughters

Have you ever really seen them?
A flock of birds, and felt its reasons?
Watch them fly forward, eyes at their sides,
And know you don’t have to see what’s coming to realize
Doing something hard with another
Is easier than doing it alone

So hold steady dear friend,
We can’t see what’s ahead,
But we knew there’d be a day like this day
When birds come out of the blue,
And our eyes can’t look away

Somewhere a war is ragin’
As you get recommendations
From another midnight shopper
Who says that Harry Nilsson’s daughters
Have eyes so beautiful
They must be seen to believe

So hold steady dear friend,
We can’t see what’s ahead,
But we knew there’d be a day like this day
When birds come out of the blue,
And our eyes can’t look away
