Lyrics

Wanna write a song
But my muse abandoned me
Wanted you to sing along
But we were in different keys
I am not afraid to jump out the nest and fly
I might hit the pavement now,
But at least I'll say I tried

We're living in a world
Where they're cutting off our wings
You can speak your mind
But don't you force your thoughts on me

I dreamt of a place
Where we lived in harmony
We tried to get along
But eye to eye we could not see

I'm warning you right now
Don't take advantage of my heart
I surround myself with light
But I still see well in the dark

I dreamt of a place
Where we lived in harmony
We tried to get along
But eye to eye we could not see
I did all I could
You still blamed it all on me
We tried to get along
But eye to eye, we could not see

So that's when I leave
