Here's a great song by Boo Hewerdine that he and Eddi Reader did on TransAtlantic Sessions.

HUMMINGBIRD

(Boo Hewerdine)

Hummingbird, hummingbird
I thought I'd find you here
Bright lights draw you near
They always will
All that work and worry
Just to stay still



Hummingbird, hummingbird
Always on your mind


Sweetness you must find
Does it get you down?
You never reach to sky
And you cannot touch the ground

Chorus:
Soar--you will never soar
Spin or swoop or glide
Soar--up above us all
In the shadows you must hide

Hummingbird, hummingbird
I saw you beat your wings
If you forget to sing
You'll lose your soul
Then were will you go
When all the pretty things have gone?

Chorus

Hummingbird, hummingbird
I thought I'd find you here
Bright lights draw you near
They always will
All that work and worry
Just to stay still

Hummingbird, hummingbird
Hummingbird, hummingbird
Etc.
