Bird on a Circus

Like a baby, stillborn,
like a beast with his horn
I have torn everyone who reached out for me.

Like a worm on a hook,
like a knight from some old fashioned book
I have saved all my ribbons for thee.

Like a bird on the wire,
like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free.

Leonard Cohen
