lyrics

The other day I was walking
I met a little bird
as he hoped along the ground
we stopped and had a word
I said, “bird, why do you stay here? why don’t you fly away?
I know for sure if I was you that’s what I’d want to do”
He said, “I could, but then I would have to find some other place to stay.
And all my friends would wave goodbye and come to mourn the day.
And what can i say?
I love my friends.”

Before I could answer
before I even tried
that bird looked up at me and said, “thats all” and then “goodbye”
And I thought that i would watch him
to see where he would fly
but his path was interrupted by a wire in the sky

I’m feeling fine up on my telephone line
I can’t see it all but i still try
there’s one thing I’ve come to know thats true
I’ve seen it with this bird’s eye view
we all fly away sometime

Then I got to thinking as I walked on down the road
How some people stay but so many others go
And I think I’d like to follow
But I don’t really know
I used to have those dreams but that was a long time ago
Still the grass looks greener on the other side
But only if your friends can come along for the ride

I’m feeling fine up on my telephone line
I can’t see it all but i still try
there’s one thing I’ve come to know thats true
I’ve seen it with this bird’s eye view
we all fly away sometime

I’m feeling fine up on my telephone line
I can’t see it all but i still try
there’s one thing I’ve come to know thats true
I’ve seen it with this bird’s eye view
we all fly
