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.
