Bird On The Wing

from by Union Duke





I was young when I first left my home
I was drunk and lying on the lawn
When I saw your face I had to erase
All the ones I'd seen before

I was off on a trip from coast to coast
I was trying to outrun a lover's ghost
Her image was replaced but you came and went away
Off to where I just don't know

And now I've got an itch that I can't scratch
I'm straying from my worn and beaten path
And lately I've been thinking I might never make it back

Cause you're gone baby gone
You're a long way from home
You're a stone rolling on
On and on and on

I was lost in your love for several days
I was tossed around a hundred different ways
Then suddenly I found when I looked you weren't around
But my memories remained

So I wandered up and down each corridor
I scoured every sea and every shore
And now you've got me thinking that you left me wanting more


In my dreams I'm chasing
A bird on the wing
But when I am waking
I'm lonely again

And now I'm wondering where did I go wrong?
What did I do to make you move along
Sometimes I get to thinking that's exactly what you want
