For my friend Chris, who wishes he was a bird
Trenchtownrock

Floating free as a bird
Sixty foot leaps
It’s so absurd
From up here you should see the view
Such a lot of space for me and you

Oh, you’d like it
Gliding around get your feet off the ground
Oh, you’d like it
Do as you please with so much ease

Now I know how it feels
To have wings on my heels
To take a stroll among the stars
Get a close look at planet Mars

Oh you’d like it
Gliding around get your feet off the ground
Oh you’d like it
Do as you please with so much ease

Bouncing about on the moon
Guess you’ll all be up here soon
The candy stores they’ll be brand new
And you’ll buy a rock with the moon right through

Oh you’d like it
Gliding around get your feet off the ground
Oh you’d like it
Do as you please with so much ease

Come fly…
Come fly…
Come fly…

Sold 2 cards! Thank you!

Words are not just words
they are kisses
on the lips of silence
that speak of your essence

and your words
are the most lovely kisses
