lyrics

Calling:
Dreamily over the roofs
The cold spring rain is falling
(falling, falling)
Out in the lonely tree
(falling falling)
A bird is calling, calling
(calling, calling)
In a lonely tree, a bird is calling

Slowly over the earth
The wings of night are falling
(falling, falling)
My heart like the bird in the tree
is calling, calling, calling
(calling, calling)
And like the bird, my heart is calling

Dreamily the cold spring rain is falling
My heart like the lonely bird is calling

Evening:
Evening and all the birds
in chorus of shimmering sound
Easing their hearts of joy
for miles and miles around

The air is blue and sweet
The few first stars are white
Oh let me (let me) like the birds (like the birds)
Let me sing, sing before the night

Let me sing before the night...

(Like the birds in the chorus of sound (calling calling!)
Let me sing before the night

Morning:
Diamond morning (diamond morning)
Woke me an hour too soon
(Diamond of a morning)
Dawn had taken in the stars
And left the faint white moon
(Diamond of a morning)

O white moon!
You are lonely (lonely)
It is the same with me
But we have the world to roam over
Only the lonely are free...
