I Want To Fly

I want to fly
Not on your terms
But on my own
So why am I sitin’ with my feet barely off the ground?
Shouldn’t I be jumpin’
Shouldn’t I be leapin’
I’ll tell you why I’m not doin’ this

You’ve stolen my halo
You’ve clipped my wings
You’ve even cut me dawn to size, size

I want to fly
Not on your terms
But on my own
So why am I standin’ with my feet firmly on the ground?
Shouldn’t I be runnin’
Shouldn’t I be screamin’
I’ll tell you why I’m not doin’ this

You’ve crushed my innocents
You’ve clipped my wings
You’ve even messed with my head, my head

I want to fly
Not on your terms
But on my own
So why am I lyin’ with my head in my hands, hands?
Shouldn’t I be smilin’
Shouldn’t I be laughin’
I’ll tell you why I’m not doin’ this

You’ve stolen my halo
You’ve clipped my wings
You’ve even cut me dawn to size, size

You’ve crushed my innocents
You’ve clipped my wings
You’ve even messed with my head, my head

I want to fly
