They told her for so long,
That she was always wrong.
Kicked out and laughed at.
Held down and looked down on.

She opened the car,
And drove far from home.
She left all her things,
To start a new beginning.

They said you wouldn't make it,
Make it on your own.
But look at you know, love.
My God, how you've grown.

With angels on your left side,
And Christ on your right.
We stood up for you,
When you were too weak to fight.

I can see you want to say,
"I told you so".
It's too late for that,
But I want you to know I love you so.
And this cage was always too small for me,
I had to go.
Your heart was so cold,
But I want you to know that I love you so.

The heartbreak is over,
The best is yet to come.
And now that we're older,
There's nothing left to run from.
They saw your strength for the first time,
And couldn't say a word.
You sang like the angels,
Like none we've ever heard.

Sad, now that she's gone.
They just wanna hear her song.
Mad that she was right,
Family wants to pick a fight with me.
For telling her to leave,
To spread her broken wings and try,
To fly away.

Fly away.
Come on, fly away.
Fly away.
Come on, fly away.
Fly away.

Come on, fly away.
Fly away.

    General CommentSeabird is using another story in their music as they did in "Not Alone". In this story, they talk about a girl who is misunderstood and unloved. The ones who mistreated her at first didn't like her and all and treated her horribly. In pain, she left where she lived to start it over again. They doubted her, but she became someone that they later loved. Christ was the reason that she made it. She says "I told you so" whenever she talks to those who doubted her. In response, they tell her that they now love her. Now, she's past them and out of their lives, and they're mad. It turns out that the one who did believe in her told her to "fly away", or keep going even though she was in pain. Because of this, now they hate him. It's practically a way of saying, "You never know what you have till it's gone".

    Seabird's gonna be huge! I call it!
