I don't know what you're thinking tonight
But there's a sea of freedom below you
and your thought just might be to take flight
but there's one last thing that I owe you
I owe you this...

Be sure to say goodbye
and write my name in your pocket
so when you're found, they can tell me you're safe
though safety might mean that
you went home to meet your maker
at least you've found a little bit of peace
that's all you've ever wanted
was a way to escape
to run away from all your demons
and outwit the curse of hate
but you have lost once again
you think you're stuck with this plan
and that flight would be the only way
to prove that you're a man
but its not...

I don't know what you're thinking tonight
But there's a sea of freedom below you
and your thought just might be to take flight
but there's one last thing that I owe you
I owe you this...

See, why he chose the bridge
I guess I'll never really know
but I think that he just wanted to fly
before he had to go
one time was all he needed
one last chance to be a bird
just to fall to his fate
to cease this never ending hurt
It's been growing with time
and he's been taken to the edge now
his arms are outstretched
and he will fly from this ledge
and I will watch him fly
with my very own eyes
God, He looks just like a bird
It's such a beautiful disguise...

I don't know what you're thinking tonight
But there's a sea of freedom below you
and your thought just might be to take flight
but there's one last thing that I owe you
I owe you this...

one last chance to live...
a bird is not such a great
creature to be
one wrong move of the wind
and you get swept into the sea
But I refuse to watch you fall
I refuse to watch you break
I'll continue holding on
for as long as it takes
I'm not ready for goodbye
I'm not ready to part ways
I'm not ready to let go
or watch you fall to this fate
So just kiss me on the lips
I'll breathe my life into you
If thats what it takes...
then thats what I must do
But I guess I'm too late
It's not my life to save
I've done all I can do
Now it's your step to take

I don't know what you're thinking tonight
there's a sea of freedom below you
and your thought just might be to take flight
but there's one last thing that I owe you
Cause I know what you're thinking tonight
there's a sea of freedom below you
and the act has become taking flight
but theres one last thing that I owe you...
I owe you this...
one last chance to live...
with "goodbye" on my lips.
