Sally's Pigeons

歌詞

When I was eight I had a friend

 

With a pirate smile

Make believe and play pretend

We were innocent and wild

 

Hopped a fence and slammed the gate

 

Running down my alleyway

In time to watch Sally's pigeons fly

 

We loved to watch them dive and soar

 

Circle in the sky

 

Free as a bird from three to four

And never knowing why

 

Neighbors pulled their wash back in

 

Put away my Barbie and Ken

Look out overhead

While Sally's pigeons fly

 

I had a fool's confidence

That the world had no boundaries

But instincts and common sense

Come in different quantities

 

My heart began to

Skip to the beat

 

Of the boy next door

 

She had her eye across the street

On someone shy and tall

 

We lived our dreams

And challenged fate

In tears she told me she was late

And Sally let his pigeons out to fly

 

On the dresser sits a frame

 

With a photograph

 

Two little girls in ponytails

Some twenty one years back

She left one night with just a nod

Was lost from some back alley job

I close my eyes and Sally's pigeons fly

She never saw those birds again

 

And me I can't remember when

A pirate smile hasn't made me cry

 

I close my eyes

And Sally's pigeons fly
