Lyrics

Wings fold around you like they did before
Does your flying astound you, new bird?
Feathers unruly and truly so free
To catch the wind's shadow as once you caught me

Oh are the hills brown still, do the rivers run wide
As bright silver ribbons that capture the light
Unfurled, you unwind, like all new things you're blind
Does your flying astound you, new bird?

Broken the tether, harsh winds on bright feather
You're stronger than smoke and you're pale as the air
The big skies surround you now the wide world has found you
Yet your bold and bright shadow still falls everywhere

No fear ever after, no fear only laughter
And smiles where the sun shines so far away from here
Oh you're precious still to me and your words still renew me
But your golden heart's flown just as sure as I've shed every tear

Fly bright in sun's rising, fly bright and fly wisely,
My foundling, my darling, my precious bright word
And love may sustain you in the places she takes you
But remember our love and remember the silence we shared...

Wings fold around you like they did before
Does your flying astound you, new bird?
Feathers unruly and truly so free
To catch the wind's shadow as once you caught me
