I've waited my whole life to find you
I dream like the desert dreams of rain
but when the heavens opened up
and you descended
like the raindrops through my fingers
you slipped away

Afraid you'd fly away
I was afraid you'd fly away
and no cage on earth could ever make you stay
Afraid you'd fly away
I was afraid you'd fly away
No chains can hold you
fly away

I tried to be everything that you wanted
but failed to be anything at all
I was afraid you'd fly away once you discovered
I'm just an ordinary human after all

Afraid you'd fly away
I was afraid you'd fly away
and no cage on earth could ever make you stay
Afraid you'd fly away
I was afraid you'd fly away
no chains can hold you
fly away

these wings are broken
these wings won't fly
i'm trapped here on the ground
while you reach for the sky

Afraid you'd fly away
I was afraid you'd fly away
and no cage on earth could ever make you stay
Afraid you'd fly away
Afraid you'd fly away
Now the cage is open
the chains are broken
fly away
