Robin Trower: Day of the Eagle

RobinTrower-BridgeOfSighs

I saw a light, just up ahead
But I couldn’t seem
To rise up from my bed

I’m not alone, then I am
People seem
To think I’m Superman

But I watch for the love
I’m livin’ in the day of the eagle
Eagle, not the dove

It’s like a weight that brings me down
If I don’t move, I’m on the ground
It’s in my mind, it’s in my soul
It’s tellin’ me the things I can’t be told

It’s a watch for the love
Livin’ in the day of the eagle
Eagle, not the dove

‘Nother day, ‘nother night
I want to love, they want to fight
I need the time, I’ve got to be alone
I’ve got to meet a lover on my own

I watch for the love
Livin’ in the day of the eagle
Eagle, not the dove

Bridge of Sighs is the second solo album by the English guitarist and songwriter Robin Trower. It was released in 1974.
