silverbird lyrics – justin hayward

i can understand
the rain that falls
waves that crash upon the sh*r*
and i know that everyone
must have freedom today
and baby in my dreams i see
i see you walking away

i can understand the moon and stars
(understand moon and stars)
wonders of this world of ours
(wondrous world of ours)
and i see the fire of life
burning brighter each day
and baby in my dreams i see
i see you walking away
(walking away)
so far away
(so far away)
i see you walking away
(walking away)

so fly, my silverbird
(fly silverbird)
you know that i
am waiting for you
and everywhere you go
i’m with you still (fly silverbird)
i know you will
return someday
and through the rain and the snow
(and the snow)
when there’s nowhere left to go
i hope you’ll stay
oh darling, now i understand
and i’m home to stay

when i close my eyes, i see you there
(close my eyes, see you there)
in everyone and everywhere
(everyone, everywhere)
and i feel the power of love
like an ocean today
and baby in my dreams i see
i see you walking away
(walking away)
so far away
(so far away)
i see you walking away
(walking away)

so fly, my silverbird
(fly silverbird)
you know that i
am waiting for you
and everywhere you go
i’m with you still (fly
silverbird)
i know you will
return someday
and through the rain and the snow
(and the snow)
when there’s nowhere left to go
i hope you’ll stay
oh darling, now i understand
and i’m home to stay

so fly, my silverbird
(fly silverbird)
you know that i
am waiting for you
and everywhere you go
i’m with you still
(fly silverbird)
i know you will
return someday
and through the rain and the snow
(and the snow)
when there’s nowhere left to go
i hope you’ll stay
oh darling, now i understand
and i’m home to stay

and through the rain and the snow
(and the snow)
when there’s nowhere left to go
i hope you’ll stay
oh darling, now i understand
and i’m home to stay

(oh, oh, oh my silverbird, come on home to stay)
