Caged Bird

I'm a caged bird

I have to sing
When I want to cry
I have to live a lie
Just to bring joy

I'm looked upon
I'm doted on
This isn't me
I want to be free

I need to spread my wings
For they are stiff
If only they let me go
There are so many things
For me to see
I know one day
My dream will come true

You can only hold onto me
For so long
Before I finally break away
And be long gone

You may wonder
You may think
Why does a caged bird sing?

I sing because
One day I'll be free
I will not let this cage
Get the best of me
