lyrics

GOLDEN SPARROW

On the back of a golden sparrow 
High above Mt. Kilimanjaro 
I learned how to fly
How to close my eyes 
And breathe out loud

On the back of a golden sparrow 
High above Mt. Kilimanjaro 
I learned how to fly
How to close my eyes 
And breathe out loud

You’re the dust in the sun 
I’m the sun in your eyes 
I’m your only light

Your cup of beans 
And your bag of rice 
Will never be 
My real price 

Way down here 
For 7 long years
7 into 8 
7 into 8
I turn next year 

I know someday
Someday I’ll be
Someone everyone 
Will look up to and see

I know someday
Someday I’ll be
Someone everyone 
Will look up to and see

On the back of a golden sparrow 
High above Mt. Kilimanjaro 
I learned how to fly
How to close my eyes
And breathe out loud 

On the back of a golden sparrow 
High above Mt. Kilimanjaro 
I learned how to fly
How to close my eyes
And breathe out loud
