"Little Wing" as written by and Christopher Young....
Well she's walking through the clouds
With a circus mind that's running 'round.
Butterflies and zebras, fairy tales,
That's all she ever thinks about.

When I'm sad she comes to me
With a thousand smiles she gives to me free.
Said, "It's all right, take anything you want,
Anything you want, anything."

Well she's walking through the clouds
With a circus mind that's running 'round.
Butterflies and zebras, fairy tales,
That's all she ever thinks about.

When I'm sad she comes to me
With a thousand smiles she gives to me free.
Said, "It's all right, take anything you want,
Anything you want, anything."

Fly on, little wing.

    General CommentAmazing cover. Even though it wasn't intended, I think this serves as a brilliant tribute to Jimi Hendrix. After all, Clapton was one of his good friends.

    General Commentthis is an amazing cover version of Jimi's song. i suppose he wrote this about a woman or imaginary friend that helps him when he's feeling low. maybe drugs? but isn't every song about drugs? i guess i should check the lyrics for Jimi's version.
