Caged

I want to wake up in a place
Where no one knows my face
Where no one can where it began
And no one will judge me for who I am
I want to wake up without tears
Forgive these last few years
How I’ve become sour in your shadow
Wading in your thoughts, so cold and shallow

But you beg me to stay
Say there’s no other way
And in your mind, maybe it’s true
But I have no respect left for you
Still, you’re begging me to stay
You only beg me to stay
When I’m walking away

I still dream of a man
Who will accept my faults
Believe in my castles of sand
Llove and cherish my secret thoughts
I want to wake up without guilt
Without regret, loss, or shame
To destroy this mountain we both built
As a result of your twisted little game

But you beg me to stay
Say there’s no other way
And in your mind, maybe it’s true
But I have no respect left for you
Still, you’re begging me to stay
You only beg me to stay
When I’m walking away

You caged a bird then shut the world out
You caged a bird then shut the world out
