lyrics

PLEASE FLY

I LOOK IN YOUR EYES
AND I SEE THE OCEAN
AS IF SOMEONE HAD SET THEM ON FIRE
AND THE LIT WICK
OF A KEROSENE LANTERN
IN THE LIGHT IT SHINES
AND IF I WERE A BIRD
I'D FLY
OVER THE WATER
AND PUT OUT THE FLAMES
SIT IN YOUR LIGHTHOUSE TONIGHT

THE HOUSE ON THE SHORE
LIVES A WRITER
WITH PENS PENCILS AND BOOKS
WRITING DOWN THOUGHTS
NO ONE SHOULD HEAR
HOPING THAT NO ONE WILL LOOK
BUT IF I WERE A BIRD
I'D FLY
OVER SOME WINE
AND SIT ON YOUR TABLE
AND READ WHAT YOU WROTE TONIGHT

DOWN BY THE BAY
SITS A YOUNG SAILOR
WAITING TO GO OUT TO SEA
THE LOVE OF HIS LIFE
NOW WITH A NEW LOVER
A BAR STOOL HIS NEW COMPANY
BUT IF I WERE A BIRD
I'D FLY
OVER SOME ROSES
A BEAUTIFUL LADY
HOPES THAT HE SLEEPS WELL TONIGHT

I LOOK IN THE MIRROR
I SEE A REFLECTION
OF EACH OF THESE PEOPLE I KNOW
NO ONE KNOWS HOW THAT THEY GET HERE
OR HOW TO LIGHTEN THEIR LOAD
SO IF YOU ARE A BIRD
PLEASE FLY
OVER TO ME
AND PUT ON A RECORD
AND DANCE WITH ME TONIGHT
