Songbird


Songbird, Songbird,
low to the ground, must not give up.
Wings are broken, tail is dragging,
would not see the danger that lay ahead.
Tears blur the eyes, can't see a future.
Songbird, Songbird,
the promise was bright, much too bright,
the descent was sudden, much too steep.
The fall from favor started yesterday -
the landing won't be over tomorrow.
Songbird, Songbird,
find a tree, find a branch,
your wounds may heal, given a chance.
Look for a new map, a different route,
Seek your own flight to Victory.
