Lord knows I am peaceful,
When I'm left alone.
I've always been an eagle,
Been a while since I have flown.
My claws are sharp as ever,
So is my eagle eye.
Something's gonna go tonight,
When the eagle flies.
Lately I've heard rumors,
That the eagle may be lame.
Just because I've been idle,
Don't mean that I'm tame.
You've jeopardized my freedom,
My natural place to roost.
I can fly if I have to,
If they turn the eagle loose.
So lay all your doubts aside,
When you go to bed tonight.
My feathers have been ruffled,
And I'm ready for a fight.
Just because I took a while to fly,
Don't mean that I don't care.
When you feel the shadow crossing,
The eagle's in the air.
So lay all your doubts aside,
When you go to bed tonight.
My feathers have been ruffled,
And I'm ready for a fight.
Just because I took a while to fly,
Don't mean that I don't care.
When you feel the shadow crossing,
The eagle's in the air.
When you feel the shadow crossing,
The eagle's in the air
