LITTLE BIRD
(Jerry Jeff Walker)

Little bird come sit upon my window sill.
Sat there through the falling rain.
As I watched that bird upon my window sill,
I saw my thoughts of you go by again.

refrain:
And the picture of my face reflected on the pane.
Is it tears I see or is it rain?

I remember how we talked before we said goodbye;
Too young to know the world outside our door.
And now the miles of time have built a wall my love,
And though I try I just can't tear it down.

No regrets about the past; there's nothing I can change.
Oh, life's a road we walk just one way down.
And looking back I do recall that frame of time
when the world was love and time was just a thought.

Many things go many ways. Your force of life is such.
We all must pick that road of life to walk.
And age gives off old memories like hand-notes in a log
where the world is time and love is just a thought.

As my thoughts go tumbling back I wonder how you look.
I wonder if you've seen that little bird.
I wonder if he sat upon your window sill.
I wonder if you'll ever hear these words.
