03. Little Bird

Little Bird
by Misty Edwards


Verse 1
Little girl, little girl with the big round eyes
Little bird, little bird, one day youíll fly
A breathtaking flight of life youíll fly
Then little bird, little bird, you will die
Because life, life is a vapor
But the brevity is what makes it a treasure
So feel it all like a love letter
To the One you will live with forever
His eye is on the sparrow
His eye is on you
Verse 2
What then, what then when itís all over?
Little bones, little bones the dust will cover
Little spirit, little spirit youíll live on
With the soul of the bird that goes on and on
Then little bones, little bones
You will rise and little, little girl
You will fly

Behind the Song:
"This started out as a poem from my perspective now to myself as a little girl, basically wondering ďif I could talk to myself as a little girl, what would I say?Ē Throughout the song, I talk about the frailty of life, but also the fact that the spirit lives on and our body will rise from the dead someday. Itís a song about resurrection and the fact that this life is not the end. Itís important, especially because itís so short, but itís not the end and I just went for that concept. It also takes a very fun musical approach with the xylophone and marimba." - Misty
