Songbird

(Andy Rajeckas)
Songbird (Dedicated to L. Ramsdell)
Copyright 2000 Andy Rajeckas

It feels like yesterday
That spring came and went away
The green leaves have turned to brown
A flower that bloomed is gone

The moon glows
The stars are bright
There’s a warm wind
That feels just right
I know you’re out there tonight
Part of this endless chain
CHORUS:
Songbird you fly so high
With new wings you touch the sky
You’re golden-pure sunshine
So long my precious friend
I know I’ll see you again some day

You’re not here but you’ve not gone
In out hearts you live on
So grateful for the time we shared
I know how much you cared

Your warm smile, your gifted hands
Brought joy at every chance
Your laughter was like a dance
Drawing us to your heart
CHORUS:
(You’re a) Songbird you fly so high
With new wings
You sail the sky
You’re golden-pure sunshine
So long my precious friend
I know I’ll see you again some day



BRIDGE:
And when the skies darkened
Somehow you still shined
Embracing your family against the tide
You climbed every mountain
You weathered each storm
And when it was over
You stood strong
CHORUS:
Songbird you fly so high
With new wings
You sail the sky
You’re golden-pure sunshine
So long my precious friend
I know I’ll see you again some day

(Because you’re a) Songbird you fly so high
With new wings you sail the sky
I see you wave goodbye
So long our precious friend,
I know we’ll see you again somed
