Careless bird

Careless bird

How high before you hit the wall

What are your limits

Where do you belong

Who catches you right before you fall

 

Careless bird

How beautiful you fly through the air

Everyone thinks it’s so effortless

They don’t know the strides its taken you

To finally find your flare

 

Careless bird

Did you tell them how many times it took you to take flight

Did you tell them how the other birds damaged and pecked at your wings

Or how every night you’d practice just to get it right

I guess it doesn’t matter now

 

Careless bird

How beautiful you’ve become

You’re grown so big and strong

You light fires through the sky

Everyone stares at you in awe

They do not whisper anymore

You’ve showed them all haven’t you

That they were all wrong
