Elton John - "Skyline Pigeon Elton John Bernie Taupin" lyrics

Turn me loose from your hands
Let me fly to distant lands
Flowers and forest fountains
Over green fields, trees and mountains
Home along the lanes of the skyway

Projects a shadow cast in gloom
For this dark and lonely room
And my eyes are mirrors
That the wind can turn the tide
Of the world outside
And these shadows turn
Thinking of the way

From purple into grey
For just a Skyline Pigeon
Waiting for the day
Dreaming of the open
He can spread his wings
And fly away again
You've left so very far behind
Towards the dreams
Fly away skyline pigeon fly
To the smell of new mown hay

Just let me wake up in the morning
To laugh and cry, to live and die
In the brightness of my day
Of distant churches sing
I want to hear the pealing bells
But most of all please free me

And open out this cage towards the sun
From this aching metal ring
