by sir elton john

i can only type the chorus cause it takes too damn long to type the whole thing out, and for some reason i'm not being allowed to cut and paste
(i know. i'm a tech ignoramus... and a slow typer-ist)

how come birds dont fall,

from the sky when they die ?

how come birds always look,

for a quiet place to hide?

these words can't explain,

what i feel inside.

like birds i need a quiet place to hide.

ok raise your hand if you've heard that song already
anyone....? anyone.....? buehler...? buehler....?

i heard it a long time ago
then i looked for it again because it settled in my head one day
and the lyrics (the rest of them as well) are really pure poetry
worth looking at
and the song is great too
really worth a listen (give it about 3 seconds to start)

I love Elton John, and for some odd reason I was thinking tonight and wondering what birds do in storms as we are having big storms in Texas. Love Elton, and love all his songs.

Thanks for swinging by my place!

I love the lyrics, love the song. One can always count on Sir Elton to bring it.

Would be a bit of a surprise to have a dead bird fall on your head on the way to the shops.

scarlet - indeed it would. but i HAVE had something FROM a bird fall on me. not pleasant either. but you're right. a whole bird would be rather disconcerting.
