One fine day these words I pray
Will breathe a truth 
Within yourself upon a shelf 
A life anew
So many roads
It's hard to know what to do
All your dreams 
All it seems
Is as you choose
For destiny my china bird
Is calling for you

The world turns
The flame burns
Bright and true
Near and far
Where you are 
Guiding you china bird
The open skies 
Is yearning for you

If they say it's not that way
Hold your view
Fly above and with my love
A light anew
Oh spread your wings
The open sky 
Is calling to you china bird 
My heart is yearning for you 

If you fly away 
I'll be waiting come what may
All my love a fragile ray 
For you for you
