(Feat. Alison Krauss)

If the wild bird could speak
She'd tell of places you had been
She's been in my dreams
And she knows all the ways of the wind

[Chorus:]
Polly, come home again
Spread your wings to the wind
I felt much of the pain
As it begins

Dreams cover much time
Still they leave blind
The will to begin
I searched for you there
And now look for you from within

[Chorus]

    It's a song talking about a wayward soul trying to find it's way to heaven... The long journey the bird must fly to go home, the long journey the man must travel to heaven. Letting their past transgressions go and giving their soul to god for eternity.
