I’m a little bird
I was meant to fly
fly high in the sky
spread my wings and roam the world,
changing paths every year,
feel the freedom and feel no fear.
I was meant to travel, travel free
live the life just being me,
I wasn’t meant to change my identity,
learn the lessons as they come,
and not be caged before they come.
I was meant to fly, and I was meant to sing
I was meant to dance when it’d pour,
I was meant to face it and stand against it whenever it’d roar,
I was meant to learn all by myself,
I wasn’t meant to be caged in name of help.
I’m a little bird,
and I’m caged
captured for years
so that I may stay safe,
Behold now! this ain’t true
This world’s fake, and all they do
glorious it seems, but it’s their wrath,
they don’t want to give up their wretched past,
The past that’s dipped in faith,
That a little bird whenever born,
it’s wings are meant to be torn,
so that it can’t spread them wide
and can’t fly high, in the sky.
So when I was born,
I was put in cage,
to never face the outside rage,
The world out i’ll never know,
my life won’t get better as I go,
as I’m caged, how hard I try,
my wings are torn and I can’t fly.
I’d never know what lessons to learn
in my life they’ll never come
I’ll be caged forever here
they say you’re safe and there’s no fear.
But I’m a bird and
I’m meant to fly,
fly high in the sky.
Spread my wings and smell the fear
but now instead I’m in tears,
I’d never know how far I could go,
what I could have done, I can never show
as my wings are cut and I can’t fly,
I can’t travel the world
and can’t touch the sky.
I’m a little bird and I was
meant to fly
my wings are cut and my tears dried.
