(Verse 1)

I’m sick and tired of life passing me by
I’m chained down by those too scared to live
They clip my wings and tell me how high to fly
I need to soar and feel the wind on my skin
The world is open and I long to be free
Give me the space to spread my wings
I’m a caged bird craving liberty
I’ll break the bonds and I’ll fly on home.

I can be who I want to be
I can do what I want to do

(Chorus)

Say it
Shout it
Be it
Do it
Stand up
Show it
See it
Dream it
Give it everything that you can.

Live it
Feel it
Spend it
Waste it
Give in
Give up
Get out
If you’re tired of living life in the wings.

(Verse 2)

No sense in being the reluctant child
I’ve had enough of playing the saint
The perfect picture of modest and mild
I’d get in line but I’m too far across

I can be who I want to be
I can do what I want to do

(Chorus)

Say it
Shout it
Be it
Do it
Stand up
Show it
See it
Dream it
Give it everything that you can.

Live it
Feel it
Spend it
Waste it
Give in
Give up
Get out
If you’re tired of living life in the wings.

(Bridge)

The time has come
And I’m ready to take the leap
The music’s playing
And my heart can feel the beat
I’m climbing higher than I ever thought I would
The dream is real
And I’m standing on my own two feet.

(Chorus x2)
