Broken Bird

Like a broken bird
Who never learnt to fly
You needed love
In order to survive
So she came to you
and took you under her wing
And she gave you hope
And taught you how to sing

But soon these melodies
Became your jealousy

Cos nothing would hold you back
Nothing could steer you away
From tearing apart
All that she made

Nothing would hold you back
Nothing could temper your rage
From tearing apart
All that she made… for you
She gave to you

Little broken bird
Where does your pain begin?
Was it born in you
Or did you learn it from your kin?
No bird soars too high if he
Soars with his own wings
But she bore your weight
Until you caught the wind

So may your heart stay strong
While you hear this song

Cos nothing will hold me back
Nothing will get in my way
From flying so high
From having my day

Nothing will hold me back
Nothing will get in my way
I’m lighter without
All your bullshit today

Nothing can hold me back
Nothing can get in my way
And I’ll prove you wrong
I’ll prove you wrong

Nothing can hold me back
Nothing can get in my way
And I’ll prove you wrong
I’ll prove you wrong

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh....
