  • Danger bird, he flies alone
    And he rides the wind back to his home
    Although his wings have turned to stone

    And we used to be so calm
    Now I think about you all day long
    (That's the moment that he cracked)
    'Cause you've been with another man (long ago in the museum with his friends)
    There you are and here I am

    The jailbird takes a rap
    And then finds himself spread-eagled on the track
    But the training that he learned would get him nowhere fast

    And I know we should be free
    But freedom's just a prison to me (rain pounding on his back)
    (He recalls the moment that he cracked)
    'Cause I lied to keep it kind (long ago in the museum with his friends)
    When I left you far behind (like those memories, the rain)
    (Just keeps poundin' down, down, down)

    And though these wings have turned to stone
    I can fly, fly, fly away
    Watch me fly above the city
    Like a shadow on the sky
    Fly, fly, fly
    Fly, fly, fly
    Fly, fly, fly Writer/s: Neil Young
