lyrics

Little white bird
High up in the tree
Wings full grown
But still not ready to leave
Never straying far from home, no
Never been that free
Little white bird
Won't you come and fly with me?

Little white bird
Staring at the sun
Always been afraid
Of being outdone
Well the blackbirds down below
Are having so much fun
Little white bird
Oh, you don't have to run

All it takes is one little leap of faith
It's a short fall down it ain't that great

Little white bird
There's more to this
Don't let chance
Be something you dismiss
So say goodbye to mama
And have something to reminisce
Home won't be too far
If you ever miss

Little white bird
Please look on down
This old gray bird
Is from across town
But do you want to turn those white feathers
Oh, into a wedding gown
Let the weight of the world
Bring you to the ground?

And all it takes is one little leap
It's a short fall down it ain't that steep, oh no
Little white bird it's time to fly
Let's soar past the sun
Painting it high in the sky

Little white bird
High up in the tree
Wings full grown
But still not ready to leave
Never straying far from home, no
Never been that free
Little white bird
Won't you come and fly with me?
