When I get high up enough that the sky almost falls down on me
and all the birds fly around, checkin’ out the ground
there’s nowhere I’d rather be

I could go to Sweden or Mexico but isn’t it the same everywhere?
and who would pick flowers for my lover
if I wasn’t here?

But there’s just one thing that I’ve been wondering
as I’m flying up above: where do we all go to rest when our days are done?

Where do the birds go to die?
I once saw one under a tree
I never saw one fall down from the sky
When I go I hope you’ll be there with me

Oh when I get down low enough that the earth is all I see
and I can feel the warmth surrounding me
There’s nowhere I’d rather be

I could go to Paris or Istanbul, but isn’t it the same over there?
And who would dance with my lover in the rain
if I wasn’t here?

But there’s just one thing that I’ve been wondering
as I’m flying up above: where do we all go to rest when our days are done?

Where do the birds go to die?
I once saw one under a tree
I never saw one fall down from the sky
When I go I hope you’ll be there with me
