Everything I want in life
Is right at my fingertips
And through only the push of a button--
Yet as I'm tying down
He's still free as the day he came anew.
This is what it feels like
When you truly know what's yours,
But there's just so much in distance
And you're still trying to fly.
"I swear I'll get there one day"
But the wait just brings you pain...
When they're always there to comfort you
And save you from the noise deep within.
They keep you from exploding
When you're ready to give in.
And when all you can do
Is cry and scream aloud
They hold you.
I never mind it when he's down.
I'll always keep him safe and
Deep within my hold.
Take care of all his fears and worries
He'd do the same for me, after all...
All the while you think to yourself
You say that they're yours
And yet you know they're not...
So just because you love that little bird you've nursed to health,
Let 'em go...
