I Wonder How It Feels To Fly

Standing at the edge of here and there

on the threshold of all her pain,

She wonders how it feels to fly

against the pouring rain.


She's all alone and scared to death

there's no-one left to love her,

so she pretends to spead her wings

to soar away just like a bird.


She's lived a sad and battered life

abused and thrown away,

decaying in her little shell

another angel will fall today.


And so she takes a sudden leap

for a moment she is flying,

she doesn't wonder anymore,

and she's no longer crying.


An empty room, a shell below

a baby bird has flown,

into the arms of heaven

far from all the pain she's known.
