Free as a Bird Lyrics
It's the next best thing to be free as a bird
Home, home and dry
Like a homing bird I fly, as a bird on wings
Whatever happened to the life that we once knew?
Can we really live without each other?
Where did we lose the...

I wonder what does it mean "home,home and dry" I looked up "DRY" in the dictionary. There are several meanings, the most accurate,for me, is"to stop talking".I think on a homing bird flying ,determined, with no distractions,being free,sure of flying,living it. And referring to the song, for me : it's inmortal John,far away from the life he used to know.Finally free ,remember he had a difficult childhood,Now he is far away from his love :Yoko.The things that made him be free ,now, are just a memory. Now ,he's free. And he'll fly ,for sure. Thank you , I'm Mar, from Argentina. =)

I think John Lennon is singing about after the break up of the Beatles and that he is now " Free as a bird". This was a demo then turned into a full song thanks to Paul, George, and Ringo.

I think the song is about how John Lennon is finally free from all the frustration and mania of the Beatles, and how he feels he is now accepted as his own musician.

At the very end of Free as a Bird, a phrase is stated: "Made by John Lennon"
However, reversing this, it then states the following:
"Turned out nice again, eh?"
