Big Black Bird (Spirit Of My Love)


(He sings)
I woke up in the night,
and saw the moonlight shining through my window.
I sat up and looked around,
startled by a sound I thought I'd heard.

(She sings)
Through the silver hills,
high above the treetops, where the wind blows,
Flies the spirit of my love
like the shadow of a Big Black Bird.

(He sings)
There was something in the air.
I could feel it as I stood there by the window,
Like a sighing of a lover,
or the whisper of a long forgotten word.

(She sings)
Across the silver waters,
down the moonlit canyons, where the wind blows,
Flies the spirit of my love
like the shadow of a Big Black Bird.

(He sings)
I heard a silent call
as I saw a shadow fall across my window.
Burning tears were in my eyes
as I recognized the voice my soul had heard.

(She sings)
Across the silver years
from beyond the sea of time, where the wind blows
Flies the spirit of my love
like the shadow of a Big Black Bird.

(Together)
Across the silver years,
from beyond the sea of time, where the wind blows,
Flies the spirit of our love,
like the shadow of a Big Black Bird.
Flies the spirit of our love,
like the shadow of a Big Black Bird.
