I think the song that I am looking for was sang by a woman but I am unsure on that. The only lyrics that I can remember are "white bird in a golden cage". Does this sound familiar to anyone?.

WHITE BIRD

White Bird
In a golden cage
On a winter's day
In the rain
White bird
In a golden cage
Alone

The leaves blow
Cross the long black road
To the darkened skies
In its rage
But the white bird
Just sits in her cage
Unknown.

White bird must fly
Or she will die

White bird
Dreams of the aspen tree
With their dying leaves
Turning gold
But the white bird
Just sits in her cage
Growing old.

White bird must fly
Or she will die
White bird must fly
Or she will die

The sunsets come
The sunsets go
The clouds Float by
And The Earth Turns slow
And the Young Birds Eyes
Do always Glow
And She must fly
She must fly
She must fly

White bird
In a golden cage
On a winter's day
In the rain
White bird
In a golden cage
Alone

White bird must fly
Or she will die
White bird must fly
Or she will die
White bird must fly
Or she will die
White bird must fly

The song is "White Bird" is in the first album of the San Francisco group "It's a beautiful day" the singer was Patti Santos and the violin David Laflamme, It's one of my favourite songs and it's kind of a hippy hymn..
