Hummingbird, Hummingbird

Hummingbird, hummingbird

I knew I'd find you here

Bright lights draw you near, they always will

All that work and worry just to stay still

Hummingbird, hummingbird

Always on your mind

Sweetness you must find, does it get you down ?

You never reach the sky and you cannot touch the ground

 

Soar you will never soar

Spin or swoop or glide

Soar up above us all

In the shadows you must hide

Soar you will never soar

Spin or swoop or glide

Soar up above us all

In the shadows you must hide

 

Hummingbird, hummingbird

So you spread your wings

If you forget to sing you'll lose your song

Then where will you go when all the pretty things have gone ?

 

Hummingbird, hummingbird.
