lyrics

[Chorus]
bring the curtains up
our day is done
i hold the window open
but the winter's come
i woke up this morning
await the return
of the phoenix flight
of the firebird

[Brandon Allday]
i woke up this morning with a fresh new look
don't mean my coutoure
stopped through on the way to her job
off hiawatha used to wait in her car

brainstorming a song as i wrote it
one earpiece in one eye open
kaplan's on lake one winter
hooker hopped in i'm not that visitor

not that customer wonder what she'd really
want to be if it were up to her
another life fabricated
live it when she in her mind as he taking it

solace no prints worth lifting
first time felt like hell
felt like hell the earth shifting
grew up over south i bet she miss it

[Chorus]
bring the curtains up
our day is done
i hold the window open
but the winter's come
i woke up this morning
await the return
of the phoenix flight
of the firebird

[Brandon Allday]
i woke up this morning with a fresh new
if i could write her into falling back into it
son of a daughter of an immigrant
want to be friends i'd prefer to be intimate

too late for all that
too early to call back
LA reading New York Times
it not the grind til you lose your mind

took her to a room on the beach in venice
50 yards out the pacific
stateside wayside when the daylight fell
i bet she miss it

[Chorus]
bring the curtains up
our day is done
i hold the window open
but the winter's come
i woke up this morning
await the return
of the phoenix flight
of the firebird

[Brandon Allday]
andrea playing pots improv on the kitchen floor
another line a couple steps i trace
why contest my taste
all these memories captured on audiotape

home on 38th but we've all been away
oak street but we've all been away
why you long in the face could've told you it's all gonna change
she like to travel been a few places

i've been there too privi to the love language
listen to the ocean and the stars
plus dilla donuts in the deck
see the bird out in the yard all so picturesque

get at her when we get done recording
out there a whole world of fortune
came to that realization
let me share a token, if you prepared to take it

[Chorus]
bring the curtains up
our day is done
i hold the window open
but the winter's come
i woke up this morning
await the return
of the phoenix flight
of the firebird
