"Snowbird" as written by Jim Messina and Alan Garth....
Beneath this snowy mantle cold and clean
The unborn grass lies waitin' for its coat to turn to green
The snowbird sings the song he always sings
And speaks to me of flowers that will bloom again in spring
When I was young my heart was young then too
Anything that it would tell me that's the thing that I would do
But now I feel such emptiness within
For the thing that I want most in life is the thing that I can't win

Spread your tiny wings and fly away
And take the snow back with you where it came from on that day
The one I love forever is untrue
And if I could you know that I would fly away with you
The breeze along the river seems to say
She'll only break my heart again should I decide to stay
So little snowbird take it with you when you go
To that land of gentle breezes where the peaceful water flows
Spread your tiny wings

If I could you know that I would fly away with you
