lyrics

You slipped in next to me
All the lights were out All the lights were out
I played you to sleep
No promises to keep
Cradled in the sound

You flew in on the wind
I came alive again
But I could never cage you in

Like the tide you've turned
Like the wind you've blown
Like a star you've burned
And turned to stone
I just closed my eyes
I woke alone
My bird of paradise has flown

My mind plays tricks on me
You're everywhere I go You're everywhere I go
A love so wild and free
I wish I'd never known Wish I'd never known

Better to have loved
Than not have loved at all
Never knew how far I'd fall

Like the tide you've turned
Like the wind you've blown
Like a star you've burned
And turned to stone
I just closed my eyes
I woke alone
My bird of paradise has flown

It's a mystery will I ever know
Why my bird of paradise has flown?
