Set the Bird Free
It wasn't as if you had no song to sing to me
In fact, you sang it and it was quite lovely
And it wasn't even as if I had you in a cage
Yet there was something that made you try to stay
Some unexplained desire to try to stay and sing for me still
Oh, but it was evident from the start that it was partly against your will
So as much as your presence means to me
It is true that a free spirit must always fly care free
Go now, see more of the world solely from your own view
Maybe you will not soon forget me when you do
You want to experience it all on your own terms
It is, after all, all we all really want to do
