high flying bird lyrics – elton john

you wore a little cross
of gold around your neck
i saw it as you flew between my reason
like a raven in the night time when you left

i wear a chain upon my wrist
that bears no name
you touched it and you wore it
and you kept it in your pillow all the same

my high-flying bird
has flown from out my arms
i thought myself her keeper
she thought i meant her harm

she thought i was the archer
a weatherman of words
but i could never shoot down
my, my high-flying bird

the white walls of your dressing room
are stained in scarlet red
you bled upon the cold stone
like a young man
hmm, in the foreign field of death

oh, wouldn’t it be wonderful?
is all i heard you say
you never closed your eyes at night
and learned to love daylight
instead you moved away

my high-flying bird
has flown from out my arms
i thought myself her keeper
she thought i meant her harm

she thought i was the archer
a weatherman of words
but i could never shoot down
my

my high-flying bird
has flown from out my arms
i thought myself her keeper
she thought i meant her harm

she thought i was the archer
a weatherman of words
but i could never shoot down
my, my high-flying bird

my high-flying, high-flying bird
my high-flying, high-flying bird
my high-flying, high-flying bird
my high-flying, high-flying bird
