Neil Young & Crazy Horse - Danger Bird lyrics
Danger bird, he flies alone
And he rides the wind back to his home
Although his wings have turned to stone
And we used to be so calm
Now I think about you all day long
'Cause you've been with another man
Here you are and here I am.
That's the moment that he cracked long ago in the museum with his friends.
The jailbird takes the raps
And he finds himself spread-eagled on the tracks
But the training that he learned will get him nowhere fast.
And I know we should be free
But freedom's just a prison to me
'Cause I lied to keep it kind
When I left you far behind.
With the rain pounding on his back he recalls the moment that he cracked long ago in the museum with his friends.
And like those memories the rain keeps pounding down, down, down.
And though these wings have turned to stone
I can fly fly fly away.
Watch me fly above the city
Like a shadow on the sky.
Fly, fly, fly.
