Take off your tattered wings,
I am coming home.
Let me begin to explain
Why it's been so long.
I got stuck in the clouds,
Tangled up in a shroud.
Waiting for the stillness to break
And your voice to take it's place.
Saying please, saying stay,
Saying where will you go anyway.

Once I was a bird,
You were the sky on every side
And I, I tried not to look down
So scared of the ground was I.

And when I fell down to the ground,
Saw you were nowhere to be found.
And I called loud your name,
But it did not sound the same.

So where have I been,
I have been lost in the wind.
And you, now you are free
Of the chains that bound you to me.

Once I was a bird,
You were the sky on every side
And I, I tried not to look down
So scared of the ground was I.

I was a bird,
You were the sky on every side
And I, I tried not to look down
So scared of the ground was I.
