lyrics

I am a Bird

I am a bird, my flesh is torn
My beak is bored, nothing to explore
Don’t let me die, die, die in this cage

I am a bird, I have wings
I have instincts, I’m supposed to sing
I need to fly, fly, fly, fly from this cage

Tell me people when you die do you want to be an eagle
Soaring free above the trees
Resting on a branch in the sun

I am a bird, through window blinds
I see birds glide, and climb up the sky
Look in my eyes and tell me why, why, why am I in this cage

Tell me people when you die do you want to be an eagle
Soaring free above the trees
Resting on a branch in the sun
Or tell me people when you die do you want to come back as me
Pulling feathers from your skin
Wishing for a branch in the sun

I am a bird, I have wings
You have the key, unlock me please
Oh let me fly, fly, fly away from this cage
