Lifespan of a Fly
The Bird and the Bee Lyrics


Oh, my children
Oh, my loves
You are not alone

I must go
I'll miss you so
My time has finally come

Oh, my lovers
Oh, my lives
Keep me in your minds

Don't despair
Don't chase the air
Where we once lived together

I have no regrets for anything I've done
I feel like I've lived as good as anyone
Remember me, remember me as best you can
So I might live, outlive my lifespan

Here I will lie
From where I sprung
The circle is completed

The earth is warm
How I transformed
And now I am defeated

I have no regrets for anything I've done
I feel like I've lived as good as anyone
Remember me, remember me as best you can
So I might live, outlive my lifespan

I want to see their face when they wrote this song.
How can a fly lifespan make me depress.
Such a brilliant song.

Michelle !

Definitely on my funeral playlist! Along with "This Monkey's Gone to Heaven" by the Pixies.

José Alfonso Ramírez Díaz

This is taking me into a trance.

❤️ don’t despair, don’t chase the air, where we once lived together. I have no regrets for anything I’ve done. I feel like I’ve lived as good as anyone. Remember me, remember me as best you can, so I might live, outlive my lifespan ❤️

Its a beautiful song. I wish I could finance the Bird and the Bee to just keep making music. I wish they had blown up after this album. Sometimes it takes three or four albums and it seems that they didn't have quite enough time, but they are amazingly talented. I hope to hear more from them in the future!

Alexis Sosa

this has an uncanny resemblance to a Final Fantasy VII track "Forest Temple" I think

I noticed that too. It's a peaceful feeling sound though. I really enjoy it
