BIRD INSIDE A CAGE
[E. Maguire]
______________________________

Such a wilful child, always wanted to be wild
Never thought I’d ever be a bird inside a cage
But fate has such a funny way of devastating any day
And before you know it you’re in over your head

But it’s love that saves us when all else has failed us
When you just can’t take another day

Now I’ve cried countless tears, faced my biggest fears
There’s nowhere to go when you can’t get out of bed
If I could change that fatal moment when the chance was there
Now I’m left with fairytale castles in the air

But it’s love that saves us when all else has failed us
When it’s hard to see how we could carry on this way

But he calls my name like nothing’s changed
And then he’ll say, hey

Let me put my arms around you, never let me go
When I tell you that I love you, I want you to know
This whole damn world could fall on our heads
But I will always stay, hey

There’s nothing we should take for granted
But you are all I ever wanted
And I will wear a smile when they lay me in my grave
Cos all this time we waste on foolish cares
What’s the point in pride when you’re running out of air

But it’s love that saves us when all else has failed us
Every time you think you’ll fall

You can call my name
My love won’t change
It’s the eternal flame
So you can dry your tears
Cos you’ll defy your fears
And love is always here
