Lyrics

Hey Birdie, the river's running low
We could cross on foot you know, sip Coronas in Mexico
And watch the sun go down
If a desert storm should rise, I'll be looking in your eyes
I'll watch the lightning as it strikes your fancy

Birdie don't run away from me so fast
I know that I'm running like an idiot from my past
And I know that I'm afraid of any love that just might last
Birdie don't run away from me so fast

Hey Birdie, did you see that flash of gold
In the cottonwood tree, there by the river road
Might have been an oriole or the light dancing around
Sometimes it's hard to see what's real, but I can see what your heart reveals
When the lightning sets the clouds to glowing

(Chorus)

Hey Birdie, I know this world is cold
And I know you need somebody there to hold
I guess we'll never know, what we might have found
But I'll be thinking of your eyes staring into stormy skies
I'll watch the lightning as it strikes your fancy

(Chorus).
