Being on your own is not as fun as it sounds...

...And The Jailbird Sings

And i'm the bird inside the cage
I can't use my wings
on this side of the gate
I need to fly away
That empty sky is calling my name
Now there's a gap
Where the lines used to meet
It's a beautiful day outside bars
I can finally say that I'm free
But they tell me otherwise

And what i couldn't wait to
give up I'm wanting back now
(you think you know)
I know i know

I know I'm free
but this isn't
how I'd expected freedom to be
instead freedom's what's
keeping me off my feet,
I need to fly away
that empty nest is calling on me
With all this pressure
the wind is taking my wings
and throwing my body back
to that harsh reality,
yeah, I can say I'm free
but I believe otherwise

And what I couldn't wait to
give up I'm wanting back now
(you think you know)
I know I know

I'm taking off
I'm taking flight

...And the jail bird sings nostagia
"Oh, how life was better as it was"
...And the jail bird sings euthanasia
"Oh, how life would be better underground"
If it was up to me
I'd probably
choose something
that chose me

And what we couldn't wait to
give up we're wanting back now
(you think you know)
I know I know

  Wow, this is really good. Great lyrics.. and an original topic as I don't think I've read anything here quite like it.
Jailbird.. meaning that's how you felt at home.. but now realize it wasn't so bad.. or, at the least, easier than being on your own?

Again, I Like it. Good writing.

Everytime I read your writing my favourites gets rewritten.
