SZA – Pretty Little Birds (feat. Isaiah Rashad) (Ctrl Album)


You are but a phoenix among feathers

If the morning comes
I see you lying and you fly by the pound
‘Til we hit the heavens
When the morning comes I hope you’re still mine
But you swim as well as you fly
But my wings don’t spread like they used to
When the morning comes
Lord, you can see, lord
Lately I feel like I’m robbin’ myself
Fly by the ounce

Like I’m robbin’ mines
Do you mean every word you mean, every word?
Pretty little bird
Don’t mind them bitches that’s cleanin’ my house
[Post-Chorus: SZA]
Spread all of my limbs out and let you lay in it
Pretty little girls
‘Til we hit the heavens
We hit the window a few times
If the morning comes
When the spiral down feels as good as the flight
When the morning comes
I wanna take all of my hair down and let you lay in it
Pretty little birds
Diamond cerebral peek into your cortex
Pretty little bird
But I wanna fly with you
Pretty little birds

You’re broken by the waves among the sea
You can see heights that niggas can’t afford
I see them lights and you look for that shit
And you been jack’n, bean’n, stalk’n just to get to me love
When the morning comes
Told you I like gentle giants so you softened up
[Verse 1: SZA]

‘Til we hit the heavens
[Verse 3: Isaiah Rashad]
[Outro: SZA & Isaiah Rashad]
You still ain’t scared of no heights
You’re pretty little bird
[Chorus 2: SZA]
Fly to the south
I wanna shave my legs for you
[Verse 2: SZA]
Pretty little girls
You’ve hit the window a few times
Be faithful and free and just play in your vortex
But my wings don’t spread like they used to
But I wanna fly with you
The window a few times
If the morning comes
Pretty little bird
When hating you feels good for the night

Fuck all that playin’, you pray for that shit
They’ll let you die, they’ll let you wash away
I wanna be your golden goose
[Chorus 1: SZA]
