Strange Bird (2014)

by Chip Gibbons



This is the original version of Strange Bird that I created on an iPad. (2014)


I haven't had this feeling/not for many a year
The last time left me wounded/Now I can't escape the fear

You flew in late one evening/It took me by surprise
I could tell you were looking/I could tell by the look in your eyes

Strange bird
I hear you calling to me
Strange bird
Flying to where you feel free

It seems like you're at a distance/even when you're here
I can't get you into focus/my view of you isn't clear

Just two strangers, two unknowns/feeling our way through the night
We kissed, we found our comfort/you took off in the first ray of light
