​If You're A Bird, I'm A Bird

This song is by The Mess and appears on the album Red Skies Ahead (2010).

Flying through your skies with broken wings
Falling fast down towards the power lines and city streets
No love will break your fall, you're failing
You can't understand
(And everybody knows just how fake you are)
Open up your eyes
(Burn like a bridge and fall apart)

You still believe the lies that you create
And wonder what goes wrong
Your word won't keep you safe
You talk a lot but talk is all you are

So go back to your cage where you belong
Where shallowness and pride will keep you from the stars

Once upon a time you tried to sing
But your songs were filled with melodies that don't fall into key
You tried so hard to turn away
(But you still play your games, all you know are games)
You decide to stay
(Burn like a bridge and fall apart)

Sink like a stone into the sea
'Cause that's all you ever were
A weight that held me down so helplessly

I'm soaring high through the clouds into the sky
I see so clearly now
I'm soaring high through the clouds into they sky
But your still on the ground
You never learned to fly
You'll never learn to fly
