Oh the oceanside , with a bird in hand, her muscles strictly wild
Oh your roof fell in, with a house so strong as a fail before its done
But your bird will fly, away

Oh your father wept and your mother held your blonde head to her chest
Oh your sister laughed, with dignity she watched you while you packed
And how you slept with the snow and the ice on the road
While your family drove for a day and a half through the storm
But your bird will fly, away

Twenty-two years you made it safe into the fall
It blew your heart across the icy river snow
Cigarettes to keep your head on, magazines to put your mind on
Articles you’d read about the coast
You’ve got a place to call your own
Plant with seeds, the garden grows but pretty soon its covered by the snow
Twenty two years you made it, Isabel,(twenty-two years) you weren’t mistaken
Talk about the icy river snow

So now, youve grown.
And the city with the turn-stile hope
And you finally walk with a dollar and half in your coat.
