about

I borrowed Maya Angelou's book title as part of the lyric of this song. I know why the caged bird sings, longing for the things just beyond her reach.

lyrics

Caged Bird

I know why the caged bird sings
longing for the things just beyond her reach
I know why the light at dawn
can be mournful when you know
it’s time to move on.

just beyond where the eye can see
just beyond where the mind can be free

i have spent lonely days
trying to understand the way
but i come up empty
i have asked inside a dream
what’s my reason or my worth for being

ust beyond where the eye can see
just beyond where the mind can be free
