about

In July, 2017, after taking in “Runnin’ Down A Dream” by Peter Bogdanovich, I wrote "Like A Bird" as an ode to Tom Petty – a song of thanks for the thunderous bolt of inspiration I felt through his music and life story. Tom Petty knew how to fly all along.

lyrics

Like a Bird Sue Smith July 2017 SOCAN
à Tom Petty


Rise up, like a bird taking flight
Into the sky, you are free
Ev’rything’s fine in this moment
A gift you gave to me

Ride the river
Destination forever
And ever

Water becomes air
You are home
In flight


Rise up, like a bird taking flight
Into the sky, you are free
Ev’rything’s fine in this moment
A gift you gave to me

Tailcoat, Tophat
Marshall of Rock ‘n Roll
Standing at the gates of Hell, standing

Fire becomes air
You are home
In flight


Rise up, like a bird taking flight
Into the sky, you are free
Ev’rything’s fine in this moment
A gift you gave to me
