A Wounded Bird

Posted on 24 Jun 2013

Welcome to Original Song Monday! So I began writing the melody for A Wounded Bird fingerpicking on the guitar and developed it on the fiddle and had a nice instrumental version of it. Then my beautiful fianceé Anne Marie Lents wrote a poem to it, which i tweaked and since then I’ve been working on the arrangement leading to this version. I haven’t been fully happy with my live version so I hope this is almost there now.

You are a Wounded Bird
On a road with passers by
You are a Wounded Bird
But they would let you die
Before they broke your wing
They stole your will to fly
Remember your sweet song
Now I only hear your cry
You are a Wounded Bird
Still waiting just to die
I will mend your wing
If you’ll relearn to fly

All the people pray
The foolish and the wisest
All the people say
It’s you who flew the highest
Remember all those days
You can have them back again

You’re not a Wounded Bird
You can dry your eye
You’re not a Wounded Bird
Here’s the reason why
I only fixed your wing
It was you who chose to fly
You’re not a wounded bird
You can dry your eye
You’re not a Wounded Bird
Here’s the reason why
I can hear you sing
As you embrace the sky
