When I was eight I had a friend
With a pirate smile
Make believe and play pretend
We were innocent and wild
Hopped a fence and slammed the gate
Runnin' down my alleyway
In time to watch Sally's pigeons fly

We loved to watch them dive and soar
Circle in the sky
Free as a bird from three to four
And never knowin' why
Neighbors pulled their wash back in
Put away my Barbie and Ken
Look out overhead while Sally's pigeons fly

I had a fool's confidence
That the world had no boundaries
But instinct and common sense that
Come in different quantities

My heart began to skip to the beat
Of the boy next door
She had her eye across the street
On someone shy and tall
We lived our dreams and challenged fate
In tears she told me she was late
And Sally let his pigeons out to fly

On the dresser sits a frame
With a photograph
Two little girls in ponytails
Some twenty one years back
She left one night with just a nod
Was lost from some back alley job
I close my eyes and Sally's pigeons fly

She never saw those birds again
And me, I can't remember when
Pirate smile hasn't made me cry
I close my eyes and Sally's pigeons fly
