lyrics

I wake up in the middle on the night.
I see your face marked in my mind like the twilight.
You blue-eyed boy I see you fine.
From days long ago, I carry them with me wher'er I go.

Little Bird,
My only son,
Let's forget all we've said and done.
For after all,
Your heart and mine,
They beat the same,
Across these many miles,
Across these many years.
I'll wait for many years.

How'd you get to be so big?
It seems like yesterday, you were the one I used to kid,
'bout being so handsome.

These days I say a prayer for you.
No real wishes, nothing I'm asking for.
It's just a whisper carried on the backs of the wind.
Well, I know you hear me.
The night and day, they know your name.
