"A Bird Without Wings" - George Donaldson & Damian McGinty

Show(s): 

Celtic Thunder are deeply saddened to announce the loss of principal singer George Donaldson, who passed away Wednesday. This was my first experience of CELTIC THUNDER with the late great George Donaldson "watching over" young Damian McGinty as he sings.  Very moving piece here:

"A Bird Without Wings"

Chorus:
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
Verse 1:
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.

Chorus:
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

Verse 2:
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..

Bridge:
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.

Chorus: with 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
