Hummingbird

(Steve Simpson)
When the skies turned blue,
And the blooms were peeking through,
Into my life she flew,
And said, “I’ve come back to you.”

Wild and free,
And so beautiful to see,
How could she ever be.
Meant for only me.

Chorus
Hummingbird, don’t go,
You’ll take my heart, my soul,
This love is all I know,
Hummingbird, hummingbird, don’t go.

Once she did light,
As the day turned into night,
But I held her wings too tight,
And hummingbird took flight.

But this time I’ll do my best,
Not to move too close too fast,
I’ll stay behind the colored glass,
‘Til the urge to fly has passed.

Chorus

When the skies turned grey,
I knew she couldn’t stay,
When I looked for her one day,
Hummingbird had flown away.

Hummingbird, don’t go,
You’ll take my heart, my soul,
This love is all I know,
Hummingbird, hummingbird.

Hummingbird, I know,
You never want to go,
The sky just calls you so,
Hummingbird, hummingbird, you know,
I’ll be here when the spring winds blow.
