Lyrics


A kid of ten rescued a wounded bird, blown from its tree in a storm - homeless, orphaned, and scared.

As the weeks went past he came to love the bird, nursing it back to its health, hearing joy return to its song.

But my daddy said "now, son, you know a robin can't live in a cage - a time will come when, to show your love,

you'll have to let it go".

 

At twenty-three that same boy hit his knees in prayer to Almighty God to beg for his dad to be spared.

As the weeks went past it became more clear to see his Lord was calling him home - from sorrow and pain to be free.

And my mama said "now, son, you know he just can't live here anymore.  The time has come to show our love -

we have to let him go".
 

When you came to me and needed one to be your friend and lift you up, the blossom of my care for you overshadowed

all I know about how love is better shown sometimes by letting go.

Now I'm sorry for what will never be since I never really learned . . . to let you be free.

 

You see, a grown up man rescued a wounded bird, blown from its tree in a storm - homeless, orphaned, and scared.

As the weeks went past he came to love that bird, nursing it back to its health, hearing joy return to her voice.

But I could not hear the words my daddy said about "a robin can't live in a cage - a time will come when, to show your love,

you'll have to let her go".
