Bird flew by
And wondered, wondered why
She was white
And ought to stay up in the sky
From the air she could wonder
For the reason
What's the point of a year
Or a season

Your life flies away
As the night turns to day
If you start once to think
Your hair will soon turn grey
But one would like to wonder
For the reason
What's the point of a year
Or a season

The list of fallen stars
And crumbled, broken hearts
Comes from a need
To play so many parts
But one would like to wonder
For the reason
What's the point of a year
Or a season

The wind and the rain
Shook hands again
Untouched by the world
They managed to keep sane
They were able to wonder
For the reason
What's the point of a year
Or a season

Bird flew by
And wondered, wondered why
She was white
And ought to stay up in the sky
From the air she could wonder
For the reason
What's the point of a year
Or a season

    General CommentBird flew by
    And then wondered, wondered why
    She was wise enough
    To stay up in the sky
    From there she could wonder
    The reason
    What's the point of a year
    Or a season

    Your life flies away
    As the night turns to day
    If you stop once to think
    Your hair will soon turn grey
    But one would like to wonder
    For the reason
    What's the point of a year
    Or a season

    The list of fault starts
    And crumbled, broken hearts
    Comes from the need
    To play so many parts
    One would like to wonder
    The reason
    What's the point of a year
    Or a season

    The wind and the rain
    Shook hands again
    Untouched by the world
    They managed to stay sane
    They were able to wonder
    For the reason
    What's the point of a year
    Or a season

    Bird flew by
    And then wondered, wondered why
    She was wise enough to stay
    Up in the sky
    From there she could wonder
    The reason
    What's the point of a year
    Or a season

    General CommentI was coming here to see if the lyrics reflect what I heard - "she was wise enough to stay up in the sky," and I see the previous commenter caught that too.

    It's lovely.

    My InterpretationThis song reflects simple living and high thinking,
    Nick sees himself as a bird in the sky, as he is different from others, his music is different, not like others, and he believes in himself and his music, and says he is wise enough to be different, that's peculiar in him.
    He says this in a very pensive mood, a larger picture of what life is for and what we are born to do in this world.
    He rises above the world like a bird, and sees everything, and wonders where life and actions of the people would lead them.He believes there must be a purpose greater than just living, for this life.
