When I would play my song
You used to sing along
I always seem to forget
How fragile are the very strong

I'm sorry I can't steal you
I'm sorry I can't stay
So I'll put band-aids on your knees
And watch you fly away

I'm sending you away tonight
I'll put you on a bird's strong wing
I'm saving you the best way I know how
I hope again one day to hear you sing

You know we're not so far away
Get on a boat, get on a train
And if you ever think you're drowning
I'll try to slow the rain

In two years or so
Drop me a line, write me a letter
I hope to find you're doing better
Better than today, better everyday

I'm sending you away tonight
I'll put you on a bird's strong wing
I'm saving you the best way I know how
I hope again one day to hear you sing

I'm saving you the only way that I know how
I hope again one day to hear you sing
I hope again one day to see you
Bring your smile back around again
