Put A Bird On It. (Again.)

I’ve gotta be honest, even with all my talk of being an independent woman and loving the freedom that comes with doing things on my own, I’m a huge fan of collaboration of arts. I truly subscribe to the age-old saying that “two heads are better than one” in this regard.

On Monday I received a call from a lovely, talented and often thought-provoking friend of mine, Noah Needleman, who asked if he could use what I wrote in Put A Bird On It to accompany a song he’d written, to be placed on his website.

Honored, humbled and excited, I obviously said yes.

Check it out, it’s quite a lovely marriage of written word and melody.
[Also, strongly consider pouring yourself a drink (I don’t care if you read this before 9 am) and listening to the rest of his music while you’re at it — male, female, gay or straight, his voice will make you swoon, while his lyrics will make you feel known.]

Way Up In The Sky

Fly way up in the air
Way up in the sky so high
Fly say from all your cares
You can fall so slow, softly in the dirt
You can fall like snow, melting to the earth
I will watch you from below
Way up in the sky so high, so high
I’ll follow as you go
You can drift down slow, softly to the earth
You can ease down so the ground won’t have to hurt
​You can fall so slow, softly in the dirt
You can fall like snow, melting to the earth
Way up in the sky…
