I gave my heart to a silver-winged bird.
Thought he'd give me everything he could in return.
And all that he gave me, may have been all that he had.
But it never was enough to keep me on dry land.
Me, I am the fish. And my home's below the waves.
No matter how I wish….that's where I'm bound to stay.
My head ain't in the clouds and I can plainly see;
The fish and the bird, that was you and me.
Sunlight on the water goes dancing with the tide,
Saw my silver bird starting to take flight.
Back to his home far beyond the sandy shore,
Never to return, back to me no more.
Now it really don't matter in the long hand of time,
If I thought for just one minute, I could be yours, and
you could be mine.
Moonlight on the water goes dancing with the wind.
Reminds me of a bird. He was my friend.
But here beneath the waves of the world that I live in.
The fish and the bird never could have been.
Yes here beneath the waves of my blue oblivion.
The fish and the bird, will never be again.
