Birds On A Wire Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Like a bird on the 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 from some old fashioned book
I have saved all my ribbons for thee

If I've been unkind
I hope that you can just let, let it go by
If I have been untrue
I hope you know it was never to you

Like a bird, free
There's a bird, free

Like a baby, still born
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

Don't cry no more
Don't cry
It's completed, oh, it's paining
It's been paid for

Like a bird, free
There's a bird, free
Like a bird, free
There's a bird, free

Like a bird, free
There's a bird, free
Like a bird, free
There's a bird, free

Oh, like a bird, free
On a wire, free
Like a drunk, free
In a midnight choir, free

Don't cry, free
Don't cry, free
Like a bird, free
Like a bird, free

Free
Free
Free
