Tamed

I was a bird, now I sit in your hand
I was a wave, but I’m caught on your sand
I was a cloud, but I’ve left the sky behind
I was a star, the brightest you’ll ever find
I was a dream, now I’m caught in your net
I had a plan, but you’ve made me forget

Hopes scatter to the wind and now I’m just a girl
Who never believed a love like this would ever change her world
My languishing in loneliness
Is now brimming with bliss
I see lights behind my eyelids
With every sun-filled kiss
My wanderings in twilight and ever-scattered mind
Are your travels too, and troubles, as you’ll soon find
But trouble is no problem when you have the answers right here
You hold a dream by her heart so what have you to fear?

Come and kiss this tamed bird
This voyager of the sky
I’ll take you with me in my heart
Every time I leave to fly
Come and comfort this grounded wave
Who gave up the sea for you
I’ll smile and sigh in your arms
And forget the ocean blue
Come and join this captivated cloud
And stay, even when I cry
It was for you I left my perch
My place up in the sky
Come and hold this fallen star
This captured, enraptured light
Hold me close and don’t let go
And I’ll linger long after night
