Song Description

A man lets a turtledove out of its cage, and though it is now free, it succumbs to nature and dies. So which was better, its caged life without risk, or the world outside that is free but fleeting.

Story Behind the Song

We never know when our number will be up.

Lyrics

A turtledove once said to me
Please open up and set me free
After a moment I agreed
I watched it fly above the trees
I went for a walk the very next day
Broken and lifeless the turtledove lay

I asked a minister I knew
The facts are far between and few
I asked if what I?d heard was true
He thought I might?ve lost a screw
Is there liquor in hell, will there be drugs and sex
I only wanted to know what to expect

Free, free from this world would you
Believe, things could sure hurt it?s true yeah
Things could be worse for you
Believe

I knew a very nervous man
He kept his time perfectly planned
He counted every grain of sand
He lost a boy in Vietnam
Each of us given only one life
So why do we fill it with anger and strife?

Free, free from this world would you
Believe, things could sure hurt it?s true yeah
Things could be worse for you
Free, free from this world would you
Believe, things could sure hurt it?s true yeah
Things could be worse for you
Believe
