    (bkz: my brightest diamond)

    Onece we had a robin
    In our backyard
    It was already dead
    But we were so sure
    That things weren't gone too far

    So we prayed to God above
    That He'd bring it back to us
    So we put it in a jar
    & waited & waited

    & mama made us bury it
    Mama made us bury it in the backyard

    I wished to be just like my best friend
    She was the brightest star in the room
    Yeah but we didn't know what we had

    With the world pressing in
    On her backyard
    She fell backwards

    We prayed to God above
    That He'd bring her back to us
    So we put her in a box
    We put her in a box
    & waited
    For something to happen
    But nothing happened

    & mama made me bury her
    Mama made me bury her in the backyard
