Should I be just another dream, just another lonely bird?

Shouldn’t you be just a piece of me, not another lonely thought?

How can we be so ‘wonderfully’ together when it seems

that all I am is this lonely bird

My song, my story, my beauty, you can’t see.

How can I be this lonely bird

 My song, my story, my beauty, you can’t see.

I sit alone with these thoughts, behind our bedroom door

Though you’re right here besides, my heart’s there on the floor

Is it worth wishing you’d hear this sad song of mine,

when my song you just can’t hear?

You’re here but not there, awake but not aware

You’re just not there for me

You just can’t hear, you just can’t see

How much you mean to me

I wish you could hear my lonely song

And then my love, then you’ll set me free

You just can’t hear, you just can’t see

How much you mean to me

I wish you could hear my lonely song

And then my love, then you’ll set me free

I try to fill this empty cage with you, sometimes

But you can’t feel a song you refuse to move to, this time

Loving a heart that’s blind to the ‘me’ that’s inside

I want to be true to myself, time to cross that tired faint line

 I’ve been delicate for too long, besides –

Yeah you just can’t hear, you just can’t see

How much you mean to me

I wish you could hear my lonely song

And then my love, then you’ll set me free

Yeah you just can’t hear, you just can’t see

How much you mean to me

I wish you could hear my lonely song

And then my love, then you’ll set me free

I don’t want to be another lonely bird

I need love or set me free.

If you can’t hear my lonely song, my dream,

Then maybe my love, just maybe

Our love’s not meant to be.
