"Silver Bird" as written by Brian J. Culbertson and Jeff Jarvis....
Get aboard the silver bird, departing gate 19.
Satisfy your Walter Mitty mind, tryin' out a dream.
Your sign is Capricorn and every corner of your mind,
Says you'll remain my friend, my friend until your mine.

Silver bird, fly my lady away,
Silver bird, take her over the bay,
Silver bird, give my lady a ride,
And let her go see what's on the other side.
Silver bird, fly my lady away,
Pretty bird, today is the day.

Lone rangers and strangers will knock at her door,
But I know my baby's no baby no more.
Silver bird, fly my lady away.
Pretty bird, today is the day.

When you come home my crazy heart will greet those silver wings.
Your pet dog will remember you, and I'll carry your things.
We'll catch a runnin' make-up, and you will look just fine,
And you'll remain my friend, my friend until you're mine.

Silver bird, fly my lady away.
Silver bird, take her over the bay.
Silver bird, give my lady a ride,
And let her go see what's on the other side.
Silver bird, fly my lady away.
Pretty bird, today is the day.

    My InterpretationThis is a song about the Summer of Love meeting the Swinging Seventies. The singer's female significant other (probably his wife) has developed separate interests during their relationship ("tryin' out a dream") and the couple is separating for a definite or an indefinite period, with the woman boarding a plane to find her bliss, which may or may not include other men in her life ("[l]one rangers"). The singer is, however, confident that despite their separation, the woman will again come home and life will resume as it was ("When you come home ... [the] dog will remember you, and I'll carry your things").
