lyrics

Flew too close to what I thought was mine
The wings of desire made me blind
But one aloft and one on shore
Have never equaled two before

Whatever wind pushed me to you
Pulled me back, away I blew
Filled my wings but did not lift
Changed my course, set me adrift

I will fly to a further sky
It's a secret to my bird's eye
And if you come into my sight
I'll tip my wing but won't alight

Whatever wind pushed me to you
Pulled me back, away I blew
Filled my wings but did not lift
Changed my course, set me adrift

You stole my heart like a jackdaw
But I will not weep or will or caw
I will not sing but you'll know my song
I'll be the bird that hums, life's not so long
