Hummingbird
Seals & Crofts Lyrics


Oh hummingbird, mankind was waiting for you to come flying along.
Heavenly songbird, we were so wrong. We've harmed you.
Oh hummingbird, lend us your wings. Let us soar in the atmosphere of Abha.
Lift us up to the heaven of holiness, oh source of our being, oh hummingbird.
Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away. Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away.
In you I've found a fragrance. I'll love you 'til I die.
I just love you, love you, love you. I don't even know the reason why.
Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away. Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away.
The sweetness of your nectar has drawn me like a fly.
I just love you, love you, love you. I don't even know the reason why. Now,
Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away. Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away.
Haven't you noticed the days somehow keep getting longer?
And the spirit voices whisper in us all.
Haven't you noticed the rays? The spirit sun in stronger
And a new day is dawning for us all.
Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away. Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away.
Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away. Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away.
The draught of understanding; wisdom, peace and love is ours.
Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away. Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away.

Oh hummingbird, mankind was waiting for you to come flying along
Heavenly songbird, we were so wrong. We've harmed you
Oh hummingbird, lend us your wings. Let us soar in the atmosphere of Abha
Lift us up to the heaven of holiness, oh source of our being, oh hummingbird

Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away. Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away
In you I've found a fragrance. I'll love you 'til I die
I just love you, love you, love you. I don't even know the reason why
Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away. Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away
The sweetness of your nectar has drawn me like a fly
I just love you, love you, love you. I don't even know the reason why. Now
Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away. Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away

Haven't you noticed the days somehow keep getting longer?
And the spirit voices WHISPER in us all
Haven't you noticed the rays? The spirit sun in stronger
And a new day is dawning on us all

Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away. Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away
Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away. Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away
*
Alas, here comes the "Gardener"; he's come to till the flowers
*
The draught of understanding; wisdom, peace and love is ours
Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away. Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away

I am now 49 and I remember hearing this song when I was a very small child and it made me cry. I hear it now and I appreciate it as beautiful piece of music and see the deeper meaning of the lyrics and music. Music is an art form that leaves a lasting impression that should be enjoyed by us all.

I remember this song the same way, I was in my toddler years, I remember bright sunshiny days, kitchen filled with weed smoke, riding on bike,mom peddling, me in baby seat, GREAT contact buzzes during those years and many more to come 😛🙂😔

This beautiful piece of music takes me back to the 70ies. Those were the best years of my life and i wish i had it back again. I don't like this world we live in today.
