Lyrics

If I could be that bird in the sky
Glide way across the ocean
High to paradise
So many things
Can get you ‘round here
Every day’s a miracle
When my heart’s not full of fear

Take me on your wings gentle one
Fly me to paradise
Lift me up to the sun
I will know when I get there
I’ve been there before
I’ll know that place
When I get there
I’ll be breathing free

I love early morn’
Waking to sounds of singing birds
Everything feels beautiful
I’m lying still
Cocooned from the world
The sunlight through my window
Warms the sheets on my bed
‘Til my head feels
Rain pourin’ down
I’m overwhelmed struggling again

Take me on your wings gentle one
Fly me to paradise
Lift me up to the sun
I will know when I get there
I’ve been there before
I’ll know that place
When I get there

Why do I fall so far
From where I want to be
When every time I reach the moon
The stars reach out to me
They reach out to me

I wanna stay
With that bird in the sky
Don’t want to be down
Circllin’ around, it’s easier up high
Let go of all that hurts me
Everything heavy holding me
'Cuz the secret to life
Is staying light up high
Breathing free

Take me on your wings gentle one
Fly me to paradise
Lift me up to the sun
I will know when I get there
I’ve been there before
I’ll know that place
When I get there
I’m gonna get there

Take me on your wings gentle one
Fly me to paradise
Lift me up to the sun
I will know when I get there
I’ve been there before
I'll stay forever when I get there
Breathing free
