The Dodos has been and still is Whitney's current favorite band of all time. Inspiring her in ways she didn't think was possible. What other way to show appreciation than through song, describing in detail how amazing they are.


I’m asking myself
Will I scare them
Once they know
They’ve got me like whoa
Wish time was so slow
So I could take in every word spoken
Feel connected, fixing the broken
While moving their bones

I’m looking for dodos
I’m searching for something that wouldn't exist
I’m trying to explain to people
That these creatures are surely a gift
I’m looking for dodos
Cause they seem to understand how I feel
Their feet alone, makes a beat that’s so unreal

I’m looking for dodos
Looking for
Hunting for
Doing anything for dodos
Looking for
Looking for dodos

It’s so amazing
What I have seen
Their capabilities
It’s so moving
I wish they knew
Every sound
Quite or loud
It’s so thrilling
Gives me space
In a crowded place
It’s so chilling

I know what I want to see
Creatures who inspire humans to be free
I know what I want to be remembered for
Motivating while capturing the ones I adore

But will they believe

And they're so kind
Always stuck in my mind
All the words that was said
Always constantly stuck in my head
I just don't know why
Oh why
The neighbors watch these birds get thrown in the fire
By all these bearded nerds
Take me in
Suck me in
The tide
I’ll come out alive
