This Bird Has Flown

from Catch A Cloud by Edward Rogers

/
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Catch A Cloud, Edward Rogers' eighth solo album, comes in a cool gatefold case. It is a soul-searching, stripped-down personal statement, a trippy swirl of music and ideas, observations of what was going on around him at the time, which influenced both the music and the lyrics of the songs.

lyrics

SHE LEFT THE CAGE DOOR OPEN
HAD TO SEIZE THE CHANCE
FIND MY WAY TO FREEDOM
ENDING A ONE WAY- ROMANCE

THIS BIRD HAS FLOWN
HAS GONE AWAY
NO LOOKING BACK
FACE A BRAND-NEW DAY
ENJOY NEW FOUND LIBERTY
TIME TO CLAIM MY OWN DESTINY

LOCKED IN HER GUILDED CAGE
ROBBED OF ALL MY DIGNITY
WANTED MY SURRENDER
BUT NEVER GOING TO RENDER

SHE BRIBED ME WITH HER PRETTY WAY
THINKING I WAS SUCH- CHILDS PREY
HER FLIRTATION MY FRUSTRATION
MIND GAMES SHE USED TO PLAY CAUSE

THIS BIRD HAS FLOWN
HAS GONE AWAY
NO LOOKING BACK
FACE A BRAND-NEW DAY
PRETEND TO OBEY
WAITING A SECOND TO GETAWAY

SHE WAS MADE OF PROMISES
AND USED ME WITH HER CHARMS
CAPTURED N HIDDEN
IN HER GOLDEN CROWN OF THORNS
TOOK ME THE PEARLY GATE
OPEN N CLOSE- CHOICE MY FATE
SAW THE MADDNESS IN HER EYES
KNEW THEN THIS – BIRD COULD FLY

THIS BIRD HAS FLOWN
HAS GONE AWAY
NO LOOKING BACK
FACE A BRAND-NEW DAY
ENJOY NEW FOUND LIBERTY
TIME TO FACE MY OWN DESTINY

CALMED ME WITH FALSE PROMISES
TRIED TAMING ME WITH LIES
WAITED FOR THE CHANCE
FOR THIS BIRD -TO FLY

THIS BIRD HAS FLOWN
HAS GONE AWAY
NO LOOKING BACK
FACE A BRAND-NEW DAY
ENJOY A NEW-FOUND LIBERTY
TIME TO FACE MY OWN DESTINY

THIS BIRD NOW FLOWN
HAS GONE AWAY
NO LOOKING BACK
FIGHT FURY EVERYDAY

THIS BIRD HAS FLOWN
NO LONGER PREY
NEVER COMING BACK
FROM YESTERDAY

THIS BIRD HAS FLOWN … AWAY
