Like Some Birds On A Wire -

Like Some Birds On A Wire -
Heywood & Donna's Studio

(see more by this artist)

Leonard Cohen's voice is serenading me today - palette knife rendition of some drunks in a midnight choir - or of some birds - parrots? - on a wire, trying in their way to be free.

Bird On A Wire - Aaron Neville and
Leonard Cohen

Like a bird on a wire,
like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free.

Like a worm on a hook,
like a knight from some old fashioned book
I have saved all my ribbons for thee.

If I, if I have been unkind,
I hope that you can just let it go by.
If I, if I have been untrue
I hope you know it was never to you.

Like a babe, stillborn,
like a beast with his horn
I have torn everyone who reached out for me.

But I swear by this song
and by all that I have done wrong
I will make it all up to thee.

I saw a beggar leaning on his wooden crutch,
he said to me, "You must not ask for so much."
And a pretty woman leaning in her darkened door,
she cried to me, "Hey, why not ask for more?"

Oh like a bird on a wire,
like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free.
