There was a house halfway 'round the world And I was invited in for a small taste of gin There was a hallway a thousand birds long But the biggest one of all was in a Cage too small I asked the caretaker cause he was the Maker Looked at me and laughed took another sip from his glass and said Open up your ears and heart You put a big bird in a small cage it'll sing you a song That we all love to sing along To the sound of the bird that mourns Well we rolled into town, into sweet New Orleans To the Apple Bell bar there was a hole in the wall The ceilings weren't tall, the floors were the ground but the sound that you would make would just warm your heart Well it was quarter to twelve when the boys walked in They got their black suits on and the songs would begin You open up your ears and heart You put a big bird in a small cage it'll sing you a song That we all love to sing along To the sound of the bird that mourns To the sound of the bird that mourns  x3 You put a big bird in a small cage it'll sing you a song  x5

I love how Patrick makes so many different versions and never really sings the same twice so it's always refreshing. Like hearing it again but new.
Matt Palumbo
Never gets old. The best is when you haven't heard it in a while and you are surprised when it comes on. Beautiful.

Patrick Watson's music changed my life. It change me my dream, and it was so deep inside my soul that whenever I listen to their music I feel something inside my heart - a unique feeling that no other musicians or singers or bands can replace. So this is how important they are for me :)

Ester Reis você é muito legal.

Stunningly beautiful ... and the female voice is eerily reminiscent of Kate and Anna McGarrigle ... all part of Montreal's vibrant and eclectic music scene <3

I can sing this song perfectly. No voice cracking, no off tune, it's almost magical to me.

the second chord progression bothers me it sounds out of tune with the rest
Paulette Dilks
Voice reminds me of Alan Isakov - music too. Banjo. Not immitative - just similiar. Good stuff.

Maybe we all are big birds, or feel like that in the spaces we want to be free, but sometimes we are glad to feel shame of ourselves and want to hear our pain.
