The Bird is Caged

As I sit down tonight

To write this song I sing

I feel like a bird in flight

Who forgot how to use her wings


Swooping along, out of control

Not knowing where to turn

To Hang on 

Or just let go…


What options do I have 

As I follow your lead

Forgetting about the life I crave

To let you do as you please


Patience and understanding 

Is all you ask of me

But if I sit in this cage

What kind of bird would I be?


Can we not learn together

To fly to heights beyond

Any place we could go 

Just being alone?
