Spirit (de Burgh Chris)

I was an eagle but I cannot fly, I was a lion, but I run no more, I was a river, but the river's dry, And soon the spirit is coming to take me home; I've seen the sunrise in a thousand ways, I've seen the wonder of a summer storm, I've seen a mountain that touched the sky, And soon the spirit is coming to take me home; Do not cry for me - I am with the stars, Do not cry for me - I am in the wind, Do not cry for me - I am with the rain, And soon the spirit is coming to take me home; I have my children, I have seen them grow, I have a garden that is all the world, We come with nothing, that's how we'll go, And soon the spirit is coming to take me home; Do not cry for me - I am with the sun, Do not cry for me - I am in the wind, Do not cry for me - I am with the stars, And soon the spirit is coming to take me home; I was an eagle, but I cannot fly, And now the spirit has come to take me home.
