I want to be a bird up in the sky,
I want to fly away from me a while,
And watch from up above, the world pass by,
And try and give myself a chance to smile.
I want to want no more but just to be,
To let myself be unlocked for a bit,
To let my heart be happy, loved and free
To let my life go by and just to sit.
If I could fly and slip away somehow,
Up there between the clouds and brightest blue,
If only it was possible right now
For me to slip entirely from view.
I want to be a bird and just be gone,
Yet somehow all my life just carries on.
