Bird in the Hand

Music and Lyrics by Harmony James

I am the thinker, the feeler, the fighter
I am the one who can cry or smile brighter
Give me a cause and I’ll give myself over
Above and beyond

I am the faith and the gold in the band
You are the bird in the hand

I am the hopeful, the broken, the cynic
I am the promise who’ll maybe just win it
I am the courage I found in small pieces
I took it and ran

I am the waves and the line in the sand
You are the bird in the hand

I can see now I see all those others are winging,
Beautiful singing, carefree and wild
Crossing those oceans then home again knowing
That they will be going back time after time
Wheeling the skies and I’ll watch with a smile
Because I understand
You are the bird in the hand

If you never breathed and I never believed
What an unrealised dream, what a missed opportunity
Shining your light to my far distant land
You are the bird in the hand

I am a seed that takes root where it lands
And you are the bird in the hand
