"Bird On The Wire" lyrics

Bird On The Wire

Like a bird on the wire
Like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way
To be free

Like a worm on a hook
Like a knight from some old fashioned book
I have saved
All my ribbons for thee

If I
If I have been unkind
I hope that you
Can just let it go by
If I
If I have been untrue
I hope you know
It was never to you

Oh, like a baby, stillborn
Like a beast with his horn
I have torn everyone
Who reached out for me

But I swear by this song
And by all that I have done wrong
I will make it all
Up to thee

I saw a beggar leaning
On his wooden crutch
He said to me
"You must not ask for so much"
And a pretty woman
Leaning in her darkened door
She cried to me
"Hey, why not ask for more?"

Oh like a bird on the wire
Like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way
To be free
