  • We will fly
    Way up high
    Where the cold wind blows
    Or in the sun
    Laughing having fun
    With the people that she knows
    And if the situation
    Should keep us separated
    You know the world won't fall apart
    And you will free the beautiful bird
    That's caught inside your heart
    Can't you hear her?
    Oh she cries so loud
    Casts her wild note
    Over water and cloud
    That's the way it's gonna be, little darlin'
    We'll be riding on the horses, yeah
    Way up in the sky, little darlin'
    And if you fall I'll pick you up, pick you up

    You will grow
    And until you go
    I'll be right there by your side
    And even then
    Whisper the wind
    And she will carry up your ride
    I hear all the people of the world
    In one bird's lonely cry
    See them trying every way they know how
    To make their spirit fly
    Can't you see him?
    He's down on the ground
    He has a broken wing
    Looking all around

    That's the way it's gonna be, little darlin'
    You go riding on the horses, yeah
    Way up in the sky, little darlin'
    And if you fall I'll pick you up, pick you up
    Can't you hear her?
    Oh she cries so loud
    Casts her wild note
    Over water and cloud
    I'll pick you up darlin' if you fall
    Don't worry 'bout a thing little girl
    Because I was young myself not so long ago
    And when I was young
    When I was young
    And when I was young, oh I was a wild, wild one. Writer/s: Rickie Lee Jones, Walter Becker
