Lyrics

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

Like a fish on a hook
Like a knight in some old fashioned book
I have saved all my ribbons for thee

And if I have been unkind
I hope that you will just let it go by
And if I have been untrue
I hope you know it was never to you

Like a baby stillborn Like a beast with his horn I have torn everyone who reached out to me

But I swear by this song
And by all that I have done wrong
I'll make it all up to you

I saw a young man leaning on his wooden crutch
He called out to me "Don't ask for so much " And a young woman leaning on her darkened door
She cried out to me "Why not ask for more"

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