(Solid Air)
Little Bird
© 1999 Allegra Broughton & Sam Page


She looks like a statue carved out of stone
They left her standing here on her own
At night the music fills her head
and raises her up from her lonely bed

Fly, little bird, you take heart
No one can stop you once you start
Fly, little bird, you take wing
I know you can do anything.
Fly, little bird.

Sittin' at home time and again
The radio is her only friend
Little bird's got to break out, you see
She's got a heart like a feather and it floats so free

Fly, little bird, you take heart
No one can stop you once you start
Fly, little bird, you take wing
I know you can do anything.
Fly, little bird.

It's in her eyes, it fills her face
The balance of beauty, and pain, and grace
Diamond, diamond in the rough
How many tumbles till you're tough enough

Fly, little bird, you take heart
No one can stop you once you start
Fly, little bird, you take wing
I know you can do anything.
Fly, little bird.
Why don't you fly...
