It doesn't matter if Bird Society is playing for a full stadium (which we haven't done - yet) or a living room with four people in it. The result is going to be a great show, because there are few things we love more than getting to make our music with each other for people. Just let us play.

Biography

Bird Society was birthed from the rhythm section of a small town high school jazz band. Their attention to the importance of fine musicianship didn't leave them, and Jack, Edith, Jimmy, and Travis decided that they could keep making music together with even more passion than renditions of Coltrane classics (as enjoyable as those were to play). With various musical backgrounds - from classical training to bluegrass heritage, vintage country to straight up rock n roll - Bird Society decided their best bet was to just let the music make them, rather than try to pick a definite path. The result was a roots-based/innovation-driven sound that whispers in through the ears and holds on somewhere in the soul. The objective:
make something unique. let people hear it.

Lyrics

Burning

Written By: Jack Pounds

When I look into your eyes
You know my world stops turning
My spine freezes over
And my chest starts burning

I tried to send you a rose
One petal at a time.
You wouldn't have any of those
And you hung me out to dry

Underneath these Texas stars.
I'd never look at them again
If I could hold you in these arms.
My Memphis Belle, is that a sin?

When I look into your eyes
You know my world stops turning
My spine freezes over
And my chest starts burning

I don't know where I am
I don't know where you are
But I'm holding out my hand
So if you're near or if you're far

Come and take it
We can run away
Don't forsake it
Baby please just stay

When I look into your eyes
You know my world stops turning
My spine freezes over
And my chest starts burning

These were things I hadn't done before
These were things that I could do some more
But would it be the same?
Would it be the same?

When I look into your eyes
You know my world stops turning
My spine freezes over
And my chest starts burning
