The Muse: Matthew Ryan, “She’s A Sparrow” (Live at American Songwriter)


Recorded live at American Songwriter’s office, “She’s A Sparrow” takes a beautiful, lonely flight through heartbreak and nostalgia. “She’s a sparrow and I’m a street,” Ryan sings, “and I’ll watch her float away from me.” The only accompaniment is a finger-plucked acoustic guitar, as tender as melancholic as the lyrics themselves.
