lyrics

she woke up in tears and called me to her side
"mom i wanna go back inside my mind
i was dreaming that i was flying
and i don't want to leave that behind

mom, i can't make sense of this at all
why birds can fly but i can only fall
cardboard wings and tape and strings
will never lift me off the ground

and why'd god make them to fly?
mama why can't i? mama why can't i?
and why'd god make them to fly?
mama why can't i? mama why can't i?"

and i'd be lying if i said
she wasn't slightly offended

and i tried to explain
that our bones aren't made the same
and they have to see their prey
from a thousand miles away
but she can't see
past her seven-year-old dreams
of being that free
being that free

i can't keep you from the pain this world will bring
but i will wrap my arms around you
until you spread your wings
