We will fly, way up high 
Where the cold wind blows 
Or in the sun laughing having fun 
With the people that she knows 
And if the situation should keep us separated 
You know the world won't fall apart 
And you will free the beautiful bird 
That's caught inside your heart 
Can't you hear her? 
Oh, she cries so loud 
Casts her wild note over water and cloud 

That's the way it's gonna be, little darlin' 
We'll be riding on the horses, yeah 
Way up in the sky, little darlin' 
And if you fall I'll pick you up, pick you up 

You will grow and until you go 
I'll be right there by your side 
And even then whisper the wind 
And she will carry up your ride 
I hear all the people of the world 
In one bird's lonely cry 
See them trying every way they know how 
To make their spirit fly 
Can't you see him? 
He's down on the ground 
He has a broken wing looking all around 

That's the way it's gonna be, little darlin' 
You go riding on the horses, yeah 
Way up in the sky, little darlin' 
And if you fall I'll pick you up, pick you up 

That's the way it's gonna be, little darlin' 
You go riding on the horses, yeah 
Way up in the sky, little darlin' 
And if you fall I'll pick you up, pick you up 

That's the way it's gonna be, little darlin' 
You go riding on the horses, yeah 
Way up in the sky, little darlin' 
And if you fall I'll pick you up, pick you up

That's the way it's gonna be, little darlin' 
You go riding on the horses, yeah 
Way up in the sky, little darlin' 
And if you fall I'll pick you up, pick you up

That's the way it's gonna be, little darlin' 
You go riding on the horses, yeah 
Way up in the sky, little darlin' 
And if you fall I'll pick you up, pick you up
