You broke the bread
You drank the wine
Your lip was bleedin' but it was fine
Come on inside, babe, across the line
I love you more than I

But then this bird just flew away
She was never meant to stay
Or to keep her caged would just delay the spring

You broke your word
Now that's a lie
We had a deal that you would try
Come on inside, girl, I think it's time
High time we drew the line

But then this bird just flew away
While I looked the other way
Or to keep her caged would just delay the spring

You broke my soul, dear
You stole the plot
You left an empty shot
But there's nothin' left here 'cos you took the lot
An empty cage is all I've got

'Cos when your bird has flown away
She was never meant to stay
Or to keep her caged would just delay the spring
To keep her caged would just delay the spring
