Uriah Heep – Bird Of Prey lyrics

I can see that look that says beware
Try to move in closer if you dare
So I must sit and play my waiting game
And for a while I know she'll do the same
Fly away

Watches like an eagle from its eerie
Then like a bird of prey she captures me
But I am older and more wise than you
Bird of prey straight into me you flew
Fly away

Now every time I've tried to set her free
I'm glad to say she comes right back to me
But if I knew she didn't want to stay
I wouldn't try to keep that lovely bird of prey
