Bird Stealing Bread Lyrics
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

There are dozens of interpretations of this song online, e.g., it's a big brother singing to his sister; a man or woman singing to their ex-lover.
Here's what I've always thought: It's a sad parent, singing about their dead child.

It sounds to me like a song addressed to a wife who has died, remembering the young son they had also lost who she has rejoined. It's about the saddest thing I've heard and I really hope Sam Beam hasn't lived it.
