Birds are in the air as they fly as if it's a dance
You watch them fly in a flock, caught in a trance 
But there's one bird that does feel the bliss that the others can 
She's still sitting in its best with her wings curled in 
Too scared to spread her wings
She's heard about all the bad that nature brings 
What will happen if she leaves the nest? 
Is she really ready for such an intense test? 
She feels the heat of the sun on her neck 
Making it sweat but she knows it's mainly because she's a nervous wreck 
She feels ashamed, thinking she missed her only shot 
But a bird doesn't give up on her and comes back and tells her to give it all she's got 
She was born for this 
She was born to fly 
She was meant to fly high 
To touch the sky 
So no longer does she feel the fear that chained her to her nest 
She was officially signing up for the world's test 
She looks at the other bird and she can't help but ask why he didn't just leave her because he had the chance 
He says because I wanted to ask you if i could have this dance 
There's so many birds that are better for you  
But it's you that I've picked and it's you that I will always fly to.
She looks at him and says yes I want to dance 
And yes I'll be the one to give you this chance 
They go to the edge of the best with their love so fresh and new 
With one look at him she finally has the courage and knew what to do
They jumped she finally freed her wings 
She realized there was good things the world could bring 
Together they dance in the sky 
Love guiding the way as you watch them fly by
