If I had wings no one would ask me should I fly
The bird sings, no one asks why
I can see in myself wings as I feel them
If you see something else, keep your thoughts to yourself
I'll fly free then

Yesterday's eyes see their colors fading away
They see their sun turning to gray
You can't share in a dream, that you don't believe in
If you say that you see and pretend to be me
You won't be then

How can you ask if I'm happy goin' my way?
You might as well ask a child at play
There's no need to discuss or understand me
I won't ask of myself to become something else
I'll just be me

If I had wings no one would ask me should I fly
The bird sings, and no one asks her why
I can see in myself wings as I feel them
If you see something else, keep your thoughts to yourself
I'll fly free then
