Dan Fogelberg & Tim Weisberg – Songbird lyrics
Listen to the songbird, hear him singing
The song he loves he's singing just for you
The only reason that he is living
Just to try and make your dreams come true
If only for a moment or two

Oh hear the songbird Lord he's soaring
Music has carried him away
See him smiling, feel his yearning
He's trying to put some magic in your day-yeah
So let the music carry you away-yeah
So let the music carry you away
Songs for his babies, some questions, some maybes
Songs of the sorrow and his hopes for tomorrow

Oh songbird, won't you carry me
Oh carry me away now, oh carry me away
Oh carry me, carry me, oh carry me away

Oh there is a songbird Lord in the alley
And I listen as he wakes the day
And in my mind, Oh Lord I feel it dawning
And a brand new understanding of my way
I let the music carry me away-yeah
I let the music carry me away

Oh songbird, won't you carry me
Oh carry me away now, oh carry me away
Oh carry me, carry me, oh carry me away

But there is a songbird Lord in the alley
And I listen as he wakes the day
In my mind, Oh Lord I feel it dawning
And a brand new understanding of my way
So let the music carry you away-yeah
So let the music carry you away
So let the music carry you away
So let the music carry you away
