FLY LIKE A BIRD song lyrics
by Joel Sattler

how many times
have I heard you say
all you want in your life
all you ask every day

is to fly like a bird
never to fall
to be free as the air
and climb o'er every wall

and if I could
I would give you the sky
I would stand on the ground
and I'd watch you fly

and if you flew away
never seen again
I would stay here for you
as your forever friend

fly, little lady,
fly like a bird
fly, maybe
fly like a bird

but you'll never soar
and you'll never fly
no matter the wish
no matter the try

we are rooted to earth
we are creatures of land
to live on the soil
and be buried in sand

but if somehow
you could spread your wings
and take to the sky
I would sing as you sing

so nevertheless
no matter the end
whatever occurs
I'm your forever friend

fly, little lady
lady do fly
if you fly like a bird
don't ask why....

Reviewed by Ronald Hull 10/7/2012
Lovely, uplifting verses. Yesterday, I listened to Skinz sing some of your lyrics. What a beautiful voice she has! She should be a hit singer and you should be her songwriter.
