"If you can fly, don't stop at the sky cause there are footprints on the moon" - Owl City

Cold bars block my way
Trying to be brave
But it’s just so stuffy in here
I know it’s safe but cages are not what
Birds are made for

Hear the wind call out my name
See the sky inviting me to play
The clouds need soaring through and
While I’m here, who else will dare to?
That’s what I need
That’s what my wings need to do

Because it’s kind of hard to fly with my wings clipped and blinders covering my eyes
I’m not you and hardly what I seem
I need to feel the waves against my feet, unfurl my wings, reach heights they could not breach
I’m not a something you can tame
I do not want to live this way

Birds cry out sadly
Or maybe that’s just me
But I refuse to cry
I have a right to
Sing if I want to
Is it your goal to watch me die?

I’m a grounded bird her needs her wings to stretch, voice to be heard
Please let me go so I can breathe
You’ll watch me soar, sing harmony
Yeah, that’s what I need
That’s what we both need

My dear enemy
What’s wrong with you?
I’d give you my heart, but love takes two
So I’ll free my wings
Take off at dawn
Find another ending for my song
