Electric Light Orchestra – Bluebird lyrics

The streets, the signs are pointin' all one way
But you don't realize just what they say
You may fight, you may run, you may know what you've done

It makes me feel so sad
To think what I might've had

I watch the stars, I watch the sun
Now I watch for anyone
But it's only make believe

You work, you work, you work so hard an' then
Someone, someone will come around again
You may think it's for real but you know how you feel

The places that I go
Don't feel good anymore

I see it all, rainbows in fall
I see her face upon my wall
But it's only make believe

Fly away, bluebird fly away for me
To a place somewhere far across the sea
Fly away, far away, don't look back, go today

The waves that crash upon the sand
Another place, a far off land

And every day, I have to stay
But you are free, you could fly away
But it's only make believe

Work, work, work, work
Work, work, work, work
Work, work, work, work
Work, work, work, work

Bluebird, bluebird fly away for me
Bluebird, bluebird fly away
Bluebird, bluebird fly away for me
Bluebird, bluebird fly away

Bluebird fly away, away, away
Oh, bluebird, bluebird fly away
