In the night the hour did come
When all the treasures rich and fair
Seemed worthless to a restless girl
As she breathed superficial air
The lights that shone started to blind
This girl with an enquiring mind
Looking outside the cage she dreamed
The gilded bird began to sing

Hear me
The gilded bird will fly

On the streets she walked through gold
The precious things that could be owned
Empty promises of eternity
With every single pavement stone
The lights that shone started to blind
This girl with an enquiring mind
Looking outside the cage she dreamed
The gilded bird began to sing

Hear me
The gilded bird will fly

Flying so high
High flying so high
Back to the shoreline
High flying so high
Back to the shoreline
Back to the core

Hear me
The gilded bird will fly
