lyrics

It's easy to say you'd never do that
when you've never been there
It's easy to say you'd never let that happen
when you've never had the chance
I try to stay right but life takes its turn
The choice is hard no matter what you've learned
It's easy to say you'd never be in that situation
but you don't know

Sometimes I'm just like a bird that has clipped its own wings
Content to stay in one place, caged
alone with food and water
as long as it can sing
You tear me down as you hit the floor
when you feel bad but don't recall what for
Apologies don't keep me here
They don't block the door

I hate to love you
I hate to care
But as soon as I turn around to fly
you are there
singing your sweet song
you can be so sweet

So I pray for a better future
a better state of mind
I may not believe in God
but I still believe in you
