A bird on your shoulder
Who told you to fly
A swift downward glance
And you took to the sky
Your wings fully spread
Too glorious too deny
But you still fly close, my love

Now you're my shadow
One step behind
Such a trick of the light
Isn't easy to find
A trick of the light
So tender and kind
But you still fly close, my love

Will a sorrowful song
A lamenting tune
Drive you away
With the light of the moon
Yes, we have parted
And parted too soon
But you still fly close, my love.
