Elton John - "High Flying Bird Elton John Bernie Taupin" lyrics

You wore a little cross of gold around your neck

I saw it as you flew between my reason
Like a raven in the night time when you left

I wear a chain upon my wrist that bears no name
You touched it and you wore it

And you kept it in your pillow all the same

My high-flying bird has flown from out my arms

I thought myself her keeper

She thought I meant her harm
She thought I was the archer

A weather man of words

My high-flying bird
But I could never shoot down

The white walls of your dressing room are stained in scarlet red

You bled upon the cold stone like a young man

Wouldn't it be wonderful is all I heard you say
In the foreign field of death
You never closed your eyes at night and learned to love daylight

Instead you moved away
