TRY YOUR WINGS
Lyrics by Blossom Dearie

If you’ve never been in love
And you’re longing for the happiness it brings
Try your wings

If you’re hungry for the sound
Of a lover saying sentimental things
Try your wings

Even the tiniest bluebird
Has to leave its nest to fly
What a bluebird can do
You can do too, if you try

If you’ve always had a dream
But you’ve been afraid that it would not come true, hitherto
Fall in love and you will find
That it’s just what you’ve been dreaming of

A first love never comes twice
So take this tender advice
When it comes, try your wings
And fly to the one you love

If you’ve always had a dream
But you’ve been afraid that it would not come true, hitherto
Fall in love and you will find
That it’s just what you’ve been dreaming of

A first love never comes twice
So take this tender advice
When it comes, try your wings
And fly to the one you love
