White Bird (It’s a Beautiful Day) / Pássaro branco

“White bird,
In a golden cage,
On a winter’s day,
In the rain.
White bird,
In a golden cage,
Alone.

The leaves blow,
‘cross the long black road.
To the darkened skies,
In its rage.
But the white bird just sits in her cage,
Alone.

White bird must fly
Or she will die.

White bird,
Dreams of the aspen trees,
With their dying leaves,
Turning gold.
But the white bird just sits in her cage,
Growing old.

White bird must fly or she will die.

The sunsets come, the sunsets go.
The clouds pile high, and the earth moves slow.
And the young bird’s eyes do always know.

She must fly…

White bird,
In a golden cage,
On a winter’s day, in the rain.
White bird,
In a golden cage alone.

White bird must fly or she will die…”

    “White Bird
    In a Golden Cage..

    White Bird
    must fly
    or will die”

    O vinil não parava de tocar esta canção, nos meus 25 anos…
    a moça da capa,(do vinil), olhava ao longe
    cabelos ao vento mãos segurando o chapéu
    Sorria.

    Obrigada
    Bjinhos
