Caged Bird


More by this author
Trapped in the darkness behind bars
The caged bird is trapped in this place
This isn't fair, show it life
Why must it be this way?
Set it free

It has no experience outside of this place
Afraid in the dark, cold box of nothing
Tries to sing but is never heard
Why isn't anyone listening?
Set it free

Feeling helpless and alone
It wants to cry out but doesn't know how
Why doesn't anyone notice?
Set it free

Unsure of what love feels like
Stuck with nobody
Wants to give up
Why can't it fly away?
Set it free

Imagine being the caged bird
Imagine living a dull, lonely life
Imagine having nobody
Listen for the cries of the lonely
Why should it be trapped?
Set it free
