Skyline Pigeon
by Elton John



Turn me loose
From your hands
Let me fly high to distant lands
Over green fields, Tree's and mountains
Flowers, and forest fountains
Home along the lanes of the skyway

For this dark
And lonely room
Projects a shadow cast in gloom
And my eye's are mirrors
Of the world outside
Thinking of the ways
That the wind can turn the tide
And these shadows turn from purple in to grey

For just this Skyline pigeon
Dreaming of the open, waiting for the day
That he can spread his wings and fly away again
Fly away, Skyline pigeon fly
Towards the dreams you've left so very far behind

Fly away, Skyline pigeon fly
Towards the dreams you've left so very far behind

Let me wake up in the morning
To the smell of new mown hey
To laugh and cry
To live and die in the brightness of my day
I wanna hear the pealing bells
Of distant churches sing
But most of all please free me
From this aching metal ring
And open up out this cage towards the sun

For just this Skyline pigeon
Dreaming of the open, waiting for the day
That he can spread his wings and fly away again
Fly away, Skyline pigeon fly
Towards the dreams you've left so very far behind

Fly away, Skyline pigeon fly
Towards the dreams you've left so very,
So very far, behind


From the L.P., "Empty Sky" 1969 Lyrics by Bernie Taupin/ Music by Elton John
