Lyrics

Like a bird without wings
That longs to be flying,
Like a motherless child
Left lonely and crying.
Like a song without words,
Like a world without music,
I wouldn't know what to do
I'd be lost without you
Watchin' over me.

(George sings harmonies here)

I get so lonely, when you're away
I count every moment, I wait every day,
Until you're home again
And hug me so tight
That's when I know
Everything is alright.

Like a bird without wings
That longs to be flying,
Like a motherless child
Left lonely and crying.
Like a song without words
Like a world without music,
I wouldn't know what to do
I'd be lost without you
Watchin' over me.

(George sings harmonies here)

You're my guardian angel
My light and my guide
Your hand on my shoulder
And you by my side.
You make everything beautiful,
You make me complete.
Everything in my world
I lay at your feet..

Like a church with no steeple,
Where a bell never rings.
In a town without people,
Where no voice in the choir ever sings.
If a boat on the ocean
Would be lost with no sail,
Then without your devotion
Surely all that I dreamed of would fail.

(George doing harmonies)

Like a song without words
Like a world without music,
I wouldn't know what to do
I'd be lost without you
Watchin' over me

I wouldn't know what to do
I'd be lost without you
Watchin' over me

Beautiful Celtic tradition.

Alli says...
This song is amazing. I cried while I was listening to it, it made me thnk back to when I was a little girl. I have always invisioned dancing not only with my dad at my wedding but also my gradfathers. Its been a year since one of my grandfathers passed away and the other one is not in good health so half of that dream is now gone but this is a perfect song to play in memory of both him and my grandmother who passed away 10 years ago.

Carol says...
The instrumental you here is the Philip Coulter Orchestra, I got this off iTunes, this song is my wedding march, it is a VERY small aisle, 4 rows...uhm-hum...haha, but none the less, my whole wedding party is entering on this song. As the song progresses, the music changes, you can hear it...that is how my party is qued to enter at the correct time. If you want to HEAR the lyrics, search celtic thunder in the itunes library. The end sounds like a finale, that is my entrance with my father.

Renee says...
Should have uploaded the whole song. This piano instrumental does it no justice, I'm sure. Not enough for me to know if I like it or not.

sherri-Ann says...

Private User says...

I'm thinking of using this for my bride/father dance, in a way to honor my mom, who passed away what will be 6 years ago. i am actually getting married on the anniversary of her death, as a remembrance as well.
