caged bird

and i never got past the answer
and i never got past the pain
and i never had time to wonder
if i would never ever breathe again
my soul took all the damage
and my heart took all the rage
and i brush my wings against the bars
and sing inside my cage

spirits held my hands
and walked me down the road
never thought to change my path
i only went where i was told
til the day came when i was left alone
and felt like i would surely die
i was lost in a maze with no way out
but even then i couldn’t cry
it was only once i was found and freed
that i feel down my knees
my body couldn’t take the pleasure
and my mind couldn’t stop the need
only had one question
i wanted to ask
but i feared the calm days
just wouldn’t last

and on a day where nothin’ is accordin’ to plan
an angel’s voice bursts forth with song
tells me that i did all that i could
i was misguided but never wrong
no longer do i need to hold
my breath underwater and drown
i can take my rightful place at home
wear the full moon as a crown
nobody left to scold me
offer cruelty or lies
nobody left to see
the tears fall from my eyes
and i never had time to wonder
if i would never ever breathe again
and i brush my wings against the bars and say
will you sing me that song again
