Little birds often fly to me here whisper in my ear and tell me about the sapphire skies, endless fields, and flowing rivers out there. Out there, the wind kisses your cheeks Out there, the music from the trees sings loudly, with harmony, along with the bees Out there, there are no walls no fences no shackles nothing from keeping you free But I wouldn't know any of that sitting here, with only a little piece of heaven mocking me. unobtainable.
Believe me, I've tried. Bruised feet, ****** hands, bleeding back, all gifts I received And when you are like me, you know when to stop trying They have strong whips Yet day after day my little friends make the impossible trip, flying higher and higher until they can bite the celestial morsel with their beaks In my dreams I fly with them, the wind kissing my cheeks But when I wake up I am greeted by the familiar smell of dirt and concrete
So when they forced me up this morning clanking with ease I was relieved I could feel a gentle breeze as I floated onto the scaffold I smiled looked up to the same piece of hope I hear voices but I can't understand them my head is already half-way up in the clouds When the necklace is placed I see my friends circling above The next second the ground is far beneath my feet And I'm flying with them, the wind kissing my cheeks.
