She's just a nigh bird flyin' throught the night
Fly on
She's just a night bird making a midnight, midnight flight
Sail on, sail on
Well, she's flyin' down to me
But, 'til tomorrow got to set her free
Set her free

So all we got, baby, is one precious night
All we got is one precious night
Throw your blues and shoes and things
And lay it down under the bed
Just wrap me up in your beautiful wings,
Better hear what I say, yeah
Oh, carry me home
Please take me through your dreams
Inside your world I want to be

Until tomorrow no tears will be shed
Hold on 'til the sun gets out of bed
Hold on, hold on, baby
Fly on

    General CommentThis is a beautiful song. It sounds like it could be about a prostitute, or more likely given Jimi's lifestyle, a groupie. Either way the song is about some kind of one night stand. I dunno. Good vibes Jimi, good vibes.
