The Beatles - I'm so Tired/Happiness is a Warm Gun

SHE HAD A BIRDS NEST IN HER HAIR

 THE BEATLES - I' so Tired (1968)
 
The Birds Nest

I walked into the pub
i had not seen her for years
there was that familiar feeling
deep in my guts
she could still bring it out
she still had that power
we briefly kissed

she removed her dark glasses
her eyes were bruised
her lips were swollen
she look tired almost beat
there was no sparkle in her eyes


he was abusing her
he was beating her
how could anyone
harm my fragile angel
that bastard should hang

he should be fed to isis

she begged me to stay
she could not be alone
she held me tight
the whole night
as if  I were her life she was holding

i put her on a plane the next day
she needed her home

her kin
time to rest
she needed time to recover

a few weeks later she called
she had two tickets for our idol
he was playing Earls Court

i still had her copy of Blonde on Blonde
i never returned in the sixties
when she was a child
and i was just a child
when we loved like the wind
like flowers in the wind

we went to see our idol
she had regained her joy
she looked so beautiful
i could not take my eyes away from her
her smile lit up the Court

she had a birds nest in her hair
