I am a flightless bird,
And that's alright.
It can't be helped,
After all..

My wings have been clipped.
But not out of love.
My wings were clipped out of fear,
A fear that there are things I cannot do.

So I watch you fly,
Fly fly fly.
You beautiful bird.
You're so colourful and bright,
I'm nothing but a background dull grey.

Go and fly,
No need to wait up.
I keep clipping my feathers because I don't think I'm ready to fly.
You can sing all your songs to me when you come home,
After all.
You keep learning new ones every time you fly.

And each time you fly,
You fly farther and higher.
And your at a point right now that when you fly,
I can't watch anymore.

And when you come home,
I'm happy your back.
But I'm also sad,
Because deep down I want to fly away with you.
And be with you all the time.

So from my cage I'll sing my songs to my self,
The same ones I've known since I was young.

After all,

I'm too scared to fly.
. . .
