She looks up and cries.
She’s not happy with my insides.
I look back at her and hum,
That I can’t stand what I’ve become.
No one listens to what I say,
And who can blame them anyway?
I’m just singin’ about sittin’ still.
And this song is movin’ on.

I know I don’t have the best track record in town.
I know my past says I can’t stop movin’ around.
But I’m not looking for a place to land, miss,
I mean, I’m looking for a bird to dance with.

Baby bird fly away with me.
Ride the current soar above the trees.
Commandeering the breeze below.
We’ll go anywhere the air can go.
As long as we’ve got wind beneath our wings.
The nest we built it doesn’t mean a thing.
So let us both reroute the paths we’ll take.
Or lets pretend I didn’t fly away.

She knows where she’s going,
And she knows where she’s been.
She’s a moth among insects.
A god above men.

I’ve been flying into a sky of unrelenting gusts,
So strong it’s hard to even stop to gasp for breath.
I’m flappin’ my wings, there’s a crack in my beak.
My tiny bird feet are feelin’ sore and weak.
My bones all ache, and my feathers are tattered.
My friends say I look well, I say “Well, I’m flattered,
but I’m not well. I’m hungry and I can’t stand the thought of eating.
I’m tired and I’d rather risk a storm than sleep.”
