Sophie B. Hawkins Red Bird Lyrics

Little Red Bird

I know you’re feeling blue

‘Cause the black bird broke your wing

And you think you’ll never soar again

But you’re higher than you’ve ever been before

You just don’t see it

Anymore

Someday you’ll find out

Who you really are

You’ll know why you had to fly so far away

From you’re beloved park

And all the nights you flew alone into the dark

They taught you how to see with your heart

You’re in bed bird

Though you’re ageless in your mind

You have sailed so many seas

Now the passage is obscured from view

So close your eyes and concentrate on breaking through

Someday you’ll find out

Who you really are

You’ll know why you had to fly so far away

From you’re beloved park

And all the nights you flew alone into the dark

They taught you how to see

And when you finally land

You’ll be surprised to learn

All you’ve lost has been returned
