lyrics

we always love the ones that have to fly
it's an old metaphor but it's not a lie
not a lie
hold my hand and I'll match you rhyme for rhyme
look through my bookshelf I'll be looking in your eyes

oh I could never cage you
but I wish you would come back to me
and I could never tame you
but I'd like you to stay with me

my love's a bird that never seems to land and
I am the wind that breaks up in the wake of your hand
oh your hands are pulling songs out of the sky
and I'm a funny thing
when I'm looking through your eyes

oh you've been lonesome
all the days that you have roamed
out there on the road
do you get lonely
the way I do at home?

no I could never tame you
but I'd like you to stay with me
