Neville Brothers – Bird On A Wire lyrics

Like a bird on a wire, like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free
Like a fish on a hook, like a knight from some old fashioned book
I have saved all my ribbon for thee

If I have been unkind
I hope that you will can just let let it go by
If I have been untrue
I hope you know it was never to you

Like a bird, there's a bird free

Like a baby stillborn, like a beast with his horn
I have torn everyone who reached out for me
But I swear by this song and by all that I have done wrong
I will make it all up to thee

Don't cry, no more, don't cry
It's completed, oh it's finished
It's been faithful

Like a bird, there's a bird free
Like a bird, there's a bird free

Like a bird, there's a bird free
Like a bird, there's a bird free

Like a bird on a on a wire, like a drunk in a midnight choir
Don't cry, don't cry
Like a bird free, like a bird free
