"Little Bird" is a unique blend of 1960's era Folk music, combined with a more modern-sounding musical arrangement that might work really well in a period film, documentary, or in television in the exact, right sync situation.

    - Doug Diamond - Broadjam Pro Reviewer

This is the kind of song that makes you think about some of life's deep questions. Makes you want to listen again and again so you get the whole meaning of the writer's metaphor. I like the bird theme and how it ties in with the songwriter and the condition of the hearts of people in this world with so much evil. Yet the writer brings in many positive images as well. The melody is beautiful; execution of guitar flawless. Love the harmonic! Background keys/synthesizer augments the production in a lovely way. Vocal is expressed with intensity that makes the listener want to really hear what he is singing. "Rope that's tied to nothing on the other side" Best lyric in the song.

Lyrics

Verse 1

What you see is what you get
in this evil world that times forgets
It's dog eat dog, the mean survive with no regrets
Some will come and some will go
to distant lands with dark shadows
destined to fall deep into the abyss below

Chorus 1

But are you holding on to a rope that's tied
to nothing else on the other side
Are you gonna fly, go fly away
back to tomorrow or to yesterday

Verse 2

Little bird I think you know
through winters, famine, rain and snow
the secrets of the heavens and earth below
Little bird, can't you see
I'm just like you and you're like me
We sing our song in solidarity

Repeat Chorus 1

Bridge

Just come on, little bird, come down from the tree
Just come along, little bird, come sing your song with me

Verse 3

But were you born to run or were you born to fight
Don't be that sacrificial lamb tonight
Just kick and scratch, and scream with all your might
The canary stuck in the coal mine
It's not your fate, not your time
Your destination, freedom, yours and mine

Chorus 2

But do the tears of sunshine fill your eyes
and you just can't see those rainbow skies
Are you gonna fly, go fly away
back to tomorrow or to yesterday
