Marty Robbins – Sweet Bird Of Paradise lyrics

Love with it's wings
Flies far beyond my reach
Love, hear my call
Fly closer, I beseach

Oh, fly to me (oh, fly to me)
Sweet bird of Paradise
Don't let me be
Life's empty sacrifice
Why must you be (why must you be)
Always a mystery
Oh, fly to me
Sweet bird of Paradise

Love with it's wings
Flies far beyond the blue
Love, heard no call
So I cannot persue

Farewell to thee (farewell to thee)
Sweet bird of Paradise
You've let me be
Life's empty sacrifice
Now all you'd be (now all you'd be)
Is just a memory
Farewell to thee
Sweet bird of Paradise
