Arcade Fire – My Body Is A Cage lyrics

My body is a cage
That keeps me from dancing with the one I love
But my mind holds the key

My body is a cage
That keeps me from dancing with the one I love
But my mind holds the key

I'm standing on the stage
Of fear and self-doubt it's a hollow place
But they'll clap anyways

My body is a cage
That keeps me from dancing with the one I love
But my mind holds the key

Standing next to me
My mind holds the key
I'm living in an age
That calls darkness light
Though my language is dead
Still the shapes fill my head

I'm living in a age
Who's name I don't know
Though the fear keeps me moving
Still my heart beats so slow

My body is a cage
That keeps me from dancing with the one I love
Though my mind holds the key

Standing next to me
My mind holds the key
My body is a

My body is a cage
We take what were given
Just because you've forgotten
Doesn't mean your forgiven

I'm living in an age
Screams winding at night
And when I get to the doorway there's no one inside

I'm living in an age
They laugh and I'm dancin
With the one I love
But my mind holds the key

Standing next to me
My mind holds the key

Set my spirit free
Set my spirit free
Set my body free
Set my body free

Set my spirit free
Set my body free
