Sweet Bird of Youth - Lyrics

Sweet bird of youth, don't pass me by
Don't take the one thing left, the time to try
Don't leave me grounded, teach me to fly
Sweet bird of youth, don't pass me by

Flower of spring, don't let me down
Don't let your petals fall upon the ground
Don't let your bright green apples turn to brown
Flower of spring, don't let me down

Turn back the years, turn back the time
Bring back the pleasures that once brought me peace of mind
Take me away upon some journey through the past
Because my race and my time's been done too fast

And rolling river, take me away
I heard you travel on to brighter days
And I'd like to ride upon the crest of a single wave
Rolling river, take me away

Sweet bird of youth, don't pass me by
Don't take the one thing left, the time to try
Don't leave me grounded, teach me to fly
Sweet bird of youth, don't pass me by

Teach me to fly
Sweet bird of youth, don't pass me by
