Lyrics

I AM THE EAGLE

THERE ONCE WAS A SILVER GREY FOX
OF GREAT BEAUTY
WHO LIVED VERY DEEP IN THE WOODS
AFRAID OF THE MEADOW WHERE LIFE ONCE BEFORE
HAD TREATED HER WORSE THAN IT SHOULD

AND TO THINK OF THE MOUNTAIN
BEYOND THE GREEN MEADOW
DID SURELY BRING FEAR TO HER HEART
FOR SHE'D HEARD THE STORIES
OF ALL THE GREAT HUNTERS
AND SHIVERED AND CRIED IN THE DARK

TIRED OF LIVING A LIFE OF DARK SHADOWS
THE FOX VENTURED OUT IN THE LIGHT
AND REJOICED AT THE SOUNDS
AND THE SMELL OF THE MEADOW
WHILE KEEPING HER SHELTER IN SIGHT

THEN ALL AT ONCE SUCH A FEAR OVERCAME HER
AS A SHADOW PASSED OVER THE SUN
AND AS SHE HEARD THE CRY OF THE GREAT HUNTING EAGLE
SHE KNEW IT WAS OVER AND DONE

CHORUS:

I AM THE EAGLE - THE SWEET SOARING EAGLE
I'VE COME TO TAKE YOU AWAY
HIGH UP THE MOUNTAIN PAST SPARKLING BLUE RIVERS
AND SHOW YOU THE PLACE WHERE I STAY
PLEASE DO NOT FEAR ME FOR I WILL NOT HARM YOU
NO MATTER WHAT OTHERS MAY SAY
FOR THOUGH IT IS TRUE
THAT OUR LIVES SHOULD NOT MINGLE
I'VE NEED OF SOME FRIENDSHIP TODAY
(I'VE NEED OF SOME LOVE TODAY)

THOUGH SHE DIDN'T KNOW WHY SHE ACCEPTED THE OFFER
AND RELUCTANTLY CLIMBED ON HIS BACK
AND THE WOODS AND THE MEADOW
WERE LEFT FAR BEHIND HER
IT SEEMED SHE WOULD NEVER GET BACK

THEN THE FOX SENSED A YEARNING
DEEP WITHIN THE GREAT EAGLE
AND SHE FELT SOMETHING STIR IN HER TOO
COULD SHE THE FOX FALL IN LOVE WITH THE EAGLE
AND HE FALL IN LOVE WITH HER TOO

COULD THIS EAGLE BE LONELY
AND SEARCHING FOR SOMEONE
TO HELP HIM RULE HIS DOMAIN
HAD HE EVER HAD SOMEONE
TO LOVE AND PROTECT HIM
AND BRING HIM IN OUT OF THE RAIN

THEN THE EAGLE SPOKE SOFT
AND HIS WORDS WERE A WONDER
IN A VOICE TOUCHED WITH SADNESS IT SEEMED
?EVEN THOUGH I MAY HUNT IN THE NAME OF SURVIVAL
I NEED NOT KILL ALL THAT I SEE?
