The Bird I Held In My Hand

If you look out your window as the sun’s goin’ down
I’ll be there by the side of the road
And I’ll ride you away from the dirty ol’ town
An ne’er again leave you alone

For you were the bird that I held in my hand
Til I learned to fly on my own
You’re a garden in this god forsaken land
And the only true love I have known

The morning was frozen the sky was still dark
When I last laid eyes upon you
I know the ache you have known in your heart
And darling I have felt it too
