"Mountain Bird" as written by and Simon Aldred....
Angel eyes, strike a match
And set this city alight
All of my life I have been pondering
The good done doing right

Won't you be my mountain bird?
Forget all you've seen and heard here
Change your name and cut your hair
Spread your wings across my window
Don't go chasing that green back dollar

There was a time, when I'd sing my songs
With a mouthful of rain
Now I'm a cut price criminal
First goes your heart, there goes the shame

Won't you be my mountain bird?
Forget all you've seen and heard here
Change your name, change your name and cut your hair
Spread your wings across my window
Don't go chasing that green back dollar

Button up boy, toughen up boy, learn to destroy
But when all my tears have run dry
Oh who am I to tell my grief to

Fight, like a dog, with a big ass bone
You'll still be a dog
Kid with a dumbbell ego, shootin' at the neighbors
For a borrowed God

Won't you be my mountain bird?
Forget all you've seen and heard here
Change your name, change your name and cut your hair
Spread your wings across my window
Don't go chasing that green back dollar

The green back dollar
Who am I to tell my grief to?
