00 12 12 12 12     00 10 10 10 10
|| |  |  |  |      || |  |  |  | 
Fly silly          seabird 


|| |  |  |  |      || |  |  |  | 
00 12 12 12 12     00 10 10 10 10
|| |  |  |  |      || |  |  |  | 
No dreams can      possess you

wings

My gentle        relations have 
names they must  call me 
for loving       the freedom of all flying 


|| |  |  |  |     || |  |  |  |     || |  |  |  | 
00 10 10 10 10    00 12 12 12 12    00 14 14 14 14

things                                              My 


|| |  |  |  |     || |  |  |  |      |||||| 
00 12 12 12 12    00 10 10 10 10     008888 
|| |  |  |  |     || |  |  |  |      |||||| 
dreams with the   seagulls fly       out of reach

out of cry         I 


2nd verse:

came to the    city and       lived like old   Crusoe on an 
island of      noise, in a    cobblestone      sea   And the 
beaches were   concrete and the stars paid a   light bill And the

000054         000565         000087

blossoms hung  false on their store window

00 10 10 10 10    00 12 12 12 12    00 14 14 14 14
|| |  |  |  |     || |  |  |  |     || |  |  |  | 
trees                                               My

|| |  |  |  |     || |  |  |  |      |||||| 
dreams with the   seagulls fly       out of reach

00 12 12 12 12       00 10 10 10 10
|| |  |  |  |        || |  |  |  | 
Out of the           city and 
down to the   seaside 
to sun on my  shoulders and wind in my

hair                           but

004004           055005 
||||||           |||||| 
sandcastles      crumble and 
hunger is        human and 
humans are       hungry for worlds they can't

share                                               My

00 12 12 12 12    00 10 10 10 10 
|| |  |  |  |     || |  |  |  | 
call to the       seagull who 
dives to the      waters 
and catches his   silver fine dinner

055005     05500 0h5  [hammer]

alone                         crying

004004                   055005

where are                the footprints that 
danced on these           beaches 
and the hands that cast   wishes that sunk like a
