Rock And Bird Lyrics by Cowboy Junkies

Rock And Bird Lyrics

    She captured both Rock and Bird
    tied one to the leg of the other
    kept them as prisoners
    until they knew who was master
    then she threw them to the sky

    Bird with unbarred wings disappeared
    Rock with weighted heart returned
    and Rock became her anchor
    and Bird became her dream

    Now she stands on the forest floor
    among the pines and towering firs
    Rock still firm beneath her feet
    Bird perched high above her
    singing songs of love's betrayal

    'I offered you my endless skies
    you countered with hoods and chains
    this song I sing will be the last
    to be inspired by your memory'
