to cry you a song lyrics – jethro tull

flying so high, trying to remember
how many cigarettes did i bring along?

when i get down i’ll jump in a taxi cab
driving through london town
to cry you a song

it’s been a long time
still shaking my wings
well, i’m a glad bird
i got changes to ring

closing my dream inside this paper bag
thought i saw angels
but i could have been wrong

searchin’ my case
can’t find what they’re looking for
waving me through
to cry you a song

it’s been a long time
still shaking my wings
well i’m a glad bird
i got changes to ring

lights in the street
peeping through curtains drawn
rattling on safety chain taking too long

the smile in your eyes
was never so sweet before
came down from the skies
to cry you a song
