Glorious Bird

If all that’s left is a memory
Make mine a double or better yet, three
It don’t take a genius to solve this crime
Love just got cut off in its prime

Didn’t we laugh, didn’t we try
Didn’t we love, love, love the stars from the sky
Didn’t our hearts take flight
Like some glorious bird flyin’ into the sun
Till our wings came undone

When I get close to something real
I put out my hand to settle the deal
It slips through my fingers like water and stone
Crazy dog chasin’ a paper bone

Didn’t we laugh, didn’t we try
Didn’t we love, love, love the stars from the sky
Didn’t our hearts take flight
Like some glorious bird flyin’ into the sun
Till our wings came undone

Red summer fruit so sweet to the tongue
Old love’s forgotten once new love’s begun
Still I wouldn’t change it, not a drop or a dime
If pain is love’s ransom, I’ll pay everytime

Didn’t we laugh, didn’t we try
Didn’t we love, love, love the stars from the sky
Didn’t our hearts take flight
Like some glorious bird flyin’ into the sun
Till our wings came undone
