The Sacred Bird

This song is by Lea Salonga and appears on the musical soundtrack Miss Saigon (1989).

From this picture I keep
You my parents look out
And your smiles show no scorn.
I am happy today
For I know what to do
And my heart is not torn

Spirits know when to fly when its time
There's no reason to mourn,
For the great sacred bird is reborn

From the ashes he'll rise
And upon his white wings
I'll watch you from above
I will never be far
But my son it's your turn
To know your fathers love
I know now why I came to this earth
It's so you find your place,
But for that
I must leave your embrace

You will be with your father now
Give all your love to him, when I am gone
Take one last look at me,
Don't forget what you've seen
For now you must move on

You will be who you want to be.
Can choose whatever heaven grants.
As long as you can have your chance,
I swear I'll give my life for you.
No one will stop what I must do
My son, I'll give my life for you


Music by:

Claude-Michel Schönberg
