katey sagal bird on a wire lyrics

Like a bird on a wire
Like a drunk in a midnight choir

I have tried in my way to be free
Like a fish on a hook

Like a knight from an old fashioned book
I have saved all my ribbons with thee

And if I have been unkind
I hope that you will just let it go by

And if I have been untrue
I hope you know it was never to you

Like a baby stillborn
Like a beast with his horn

I have torn everyone who reached out for me
But I swear by this song

By all I have done wrong
I’ll make it all up to you

I saw a beggar leaning on his wooden crutch
He called out to me “Don’t ask for so much

And a young man leaning on his darkened door
He cried out to me “Hey, why not ask for more

Like a bird on a wire
Like a drunk in a midnight choir

I have tried in my way to be free
