My Friend, The Song Bird

They said you were poison 
But I didn't want to believe them
I saw the good in you
That they couldn't.
 
Your wings might've been
Damaged before
I thought they were healed
 
But as it turns out,
They were right.
 
Now, you sing your song
In a cage.
You will reach out to me
But I won't reach back.
 
I wanted them to
Be wrong
 
The apologies won't work,
Those sad eyes won't phase me.
I gave you one chance
And one chance only
 
Your wings were still broken
You won't make me fall with you 
 
And now my song bird
I fly without you.
