The Kindred – Oiseau lyrics

The caged bird sings a sad song,
It’s not short and not too long,
But it’s just enough that no one else will sing along.

Wake me up before you go,
I’ll tell you everything that you want to know.
I’m passing out and wasted,
The freedom that I tasted was so sweet, was so sweet.

I’m nothing more than blood and bones,
But I’m happiest when running home to tell you, tell you.

The first light came and I changed,
You leaned outside and called my name,
But nothing of what we once were remains the same.
I’m going on a journey, all alone,
So go ahead and try and hurt me, all alone,
The certainty that surged through me when I heard the breeze.

You can’t clip my wings or make me sing,
I’m passing out and wasted,
The freedom that I tasted was so sweet, was so sweet.
I’ll break this cage and fly away.

My only carriage carries me,
I left a distant memory.
The open sky I’m home at last,
The shadows that I overcast.
Will cover all I left behind,
My only limit now is time,
And you can’t touch me.
