Lyrics

Sweet Little Bird

 Intro
The day is bright
The world is beautiful
Birds gather for their
Morning song
Look at the time
It’s far too early
Been wakened since the
Break of dawn
I hear a knock on the window
I look up but nobody’s there
So I make another cup of coffee
And step outside
To breathe the morning air

Verse 1
Solid as a rock
Heavy like a stone
Eyes wide open
Staring into mine
Takes me back in time
To another day
A single drop of blood
I blow into your face
Press my finger on your heart
But it's too late
Solid as a rock
Heavy like a stone
Still I hear myself say

Chorus
Spread your wings and fly   
High up into the sky
You can do it if you try
I’m not letting you die today
Spread your wings and fly
Fly away

Verse 2
Solid as a rock
Heavy like a stone
Eyes wide open
Staring into mine
Takes me back in time
To another day
Then to my surprise
The miracle of life
Is right before my eyes
You struggle and you strive
Destined to survive
You try to fly away

Chorus
Spread your wings and fly
High up into the sky
You can do it if you try
I’m not letting you die today
Spread your wings and fly
Fly away

Outro
The day is bright
The world is beautiful
All creatures great and small
The not so wise
But truly wonderful
Oh my God you made them all

Sweet Little Bird
Sweet Little Bird

This is a true story and is written exactly as it happened.
The knock on the window was the bird flying into the glass.
Every time I hear this song I get a lump in my throat.
