Little Bird Lyrics

A little bird come sit upon my window sill
Sat there - through the falling rain
I watched that little bird upon my window sill
Saw my thoughts of you go by again

And the picture of my face - reflected on the pane
Is it tears - or is it rain?

Yeah, I remember how we talked before we said goodbye
Too young to know the world outside our door
We laughed and said that love was free like birds that fly the winds
Well the rainy day made me think of you once more

And the picture of my face - reflected on the pane
Is it tears - or is it rain?

I have no regrets about the past - I see how young we were
The world was love and time was but a thought
Many things go many ways - and many times but once
Your life have passed and your love is but a thought

And the picture of my face - reflected on the pane
Is it tears - or is it rain?

So as the thoughts go tumblin' back I wonder how you loved
I wonder if you've seen that little bird
I wonder if he's sat upon your window sill
I wonder if you'll ever hear these words

And the picture of my face - reflected on the pane
Is it tears - or is it rain?
