Bird on a Wire
Like a bird on the wire, Like a drunk in a midnight choir I have tried in my way to be free Like a worm on a hook Like a knight from an old fashioned book I have saved all my ribbons for thee If I, I been so unkind, I hope that you just let it all go by If I, I been so untrue I hope you know it was never to you. Like a baby, stillborn, Like a beast with his horn I've torn everyone who reached out for me. But I swear by this song And all that I have done wrong I'll make it all up to you. Don't cry, don't cry, anymore It's over now baby, don't cry no more Don't cry, don't cry anymore It's over now baby, don't cry no more Like a bird on a wire Like a drunk in a midnight choir I have tried in my way to be free.
