B-side of the hit-single "Daniel" (1972). Music by Elton John; lyrics by Bernie Taupin.

Lyrics:

Turn me loose from your hands

Let me fly to distant lands

Over green fields, trees and mountains

Flowers and forest fountains

Home along the lanes of the skyway

For this dark and lonely room

Projects a shadow cast in gloom

And my eyes are mirrors

Of the world outside

Thinking of the way

That the wind can turn the tide

And these shadows turn

From purple into grey

For just a Skyline Pigeon

Dreaming of the open

Waiting for the day

He can spread his wings

And fly away again

Fly away skyline pigeon fly

Towards the dreams

You've left so very far behind

Just let me wake up in the morning

To the smell of new mown hay

To laugh and cry, to live and die

In the brightness of my day

I want to hear the pealing bells

Of distant churches sing

But most of all please free me

From this aching metal ring

And open out this cage towards the sun.

Bernie Taupin: "That's a song with a history. I think, funnily enough, Skyline Pigeon was the first really good song that we ever wrote. I think it was a lanmark as far as our writing was concerned - it was a good blend of lyrics and melody. It was originally included on the Empty Sky album, and was also one of the first songs that we wrote that was covered. There was a guy called Roger Cook that wanted to record it, and in order for him to record it, Dick James gave part of the publishing to him. We obviously liked the song enough to re-record it later on, and I think it also turned up on a couple of live albums. Most recently it turned up again, because at AIDS victim Ryan White's funeral Elton played it, and if I'm not mistaken, there's a quote from it on Ryan's grave", 1992.

I remember so well as 16 year old apprentice hearing Daniel, rushing out to buy the single and then find this beautiful song on the reverse. I really can't believe it was so long ago yet remember the moment like it was yesterday!

esta metafora quer dizer quando estamos sobre o poder do amor e nas maos de outra pessoa..... ele quer esquecer esta pessoa mas ao mesmo tempo nao consegue por amar muito......e sempre sonha com o horizonte e com novas oportunidades, mas e tao dificil esquecer.......mesmo assim se um amor nao e correspondido, algum dia voltaremos a voar e a sonhar novamente.....Nossa ja fui tao pisado nessa vida tambem.....siga em frente e nao olhe para tras, sei que sera dificil mas faca isso!!!!O amor somente e bom quando sentido por ambas as partes....Nao vale a pena se machucar por alguem que nao nos ama, e melhor esquecerE para mim o pior sentimento.....o sentimento de perda de alguem, nunca me importei com dinheiro, inveja, odio ou nada mesmo....mas quando alguem que era tao perto da gente muda , nao da p fazer muita coisa, e esse momento sempre me afetou muito, embora por algumas vezes que tenham sido, sempre fiquei muito mal.....nao gosto de separacoes.......talvez porque vi meu pai deixar minha mae quando tinha 6 anos de idade na minha frente, ele pegou as malas e saiu.....ela se sentou no chao e comecou a chorar.....isso me marcou muito.....sei la talvez seja isso.....espero que meu comentario possa ajudar alguem de alguma forma.
