lyrics

I was born to paradise and here I roam
happy to make the forest and the trees my home
hills whisper ancient secrets in the silent air
with many tongues and cunning words they’re calling me there

Among the many rolling hills an echo I have chased
The secret words to change our fate and save the human race
But nothing can erase the words that I once heard
Sung to me with trilling lips by one little yellow bird
he said

What you think you know and what you think you have seen
are just small observations of this world were living in
if you lock me in a cage I will no longer sing
so shoot me down, take me down, but you’ll never bind my wings

I was born to paradise and here I roam
happy to make the forest and the trees my home
hills whisper ancient secrets in the silent air
Among the many truths I’ve heard, a few i ought to share
they said

What you think you know and what you think you have seen
are just small observations of this world were living in
if you lock me in a cage I will no longer sing
so shoot me down, take me down, but you’ll never bind my wings
