Little bird, where do you go
When there's nothing left in the nest for you
But the icy wind and the winter snow?
Little bird, how do you fly?
Who is it that taught you how to soar,
where and when and why?

Oh, that I could fly like thee
Spread my wings and flutter free
I see you there in the autumn air
But I've never left the tree
Oh, that I could fly like thee!

Little bird, what do you fear?
Why is it that I want to run away,
But you are always near?
Little bird, what do you sing
When the sun goes down and the dark surrounds
Little birds under your wing?

Oh, that I could sing like thee
Be part of a lovely melody
They say the truth can set you free
But it's so hard to believe
That I could sing like thee!

Everyday I'm listening
To the little song you sing
With sweet anticipation
Of the coming of the spring
Oh, you know that I feel better
Though the storm is getting wetter
We're just two little birds of a feather
You and me
Yeah, we're just two little birds of a feather
You and me

Little bird, what do you dream
When you're safe and sound, high above the ground
In the top of a walnut tree?
Little bird, whom do you love?
Who is it that makes your heart beat faster
When you're flying up above?

Oh, that I could love like thee
See the world as it's meant to be
They say it's a small one after all
But it seems so big to me
Oh, that I could love like thee!
