Big Pig – I Can't Break Away lyrics

All my life I wanted to fly
Like the birds that you see way up in the sky
Making circles in the morning sun
Flying high in the sky till the day is done

I can't break away like a child in his fantasy
Punching holes in the wall of reality
All my life I wanted to fly
But I don't have the wings and I wonder why

I can't break away
Woah, well, my momma told me when I was young
Stand tall birdie, you're number one
She said, but you can be what you want to be
But you can't change the course of your destiny

I can't break away, oh no, no, no, no
I can't break away, well, I can't, I can't
I can't break away, oh no, no, no, no
I can't break away, I can't break away
