Lyrics

Bird In A Cage
(By Katie Garibaldi)


Bird in a cage, you’re so lovely, I’ve been you a thousand times
All of this sun is above me where the free birds fly

[Pre-Chorus]
Baby, you know you’ve got this
Why do you let them get to you from such a young age?
Baby, you’re stronger than this
They may have put you in it, but your home is not a cage

[Chorus]
Let me fly, let me sing, let me breathe, let me be
The way God made me, the way I wanna be
Let me laugh, let me love, let me live
Like a bird in a cage who finally escaped
I’m gonna fly away

Bird in a cage, you’re so pretty, you were meant for bigger things
And sweet little bird, it’s a pity you can’t use your tiny wings

[Repeat Pre-Chorus and Chorus]

And when they call, Bird, fly on and gone
I will hear your song and watch the sky turn into dawn

Baby, you know you’ve got this
No need to turn and look back
Live forever this way
Baby, time to be honest
They may have put you in it, but your home is not a cage

[Repeat Chorus]

I’m gonna fly away
