Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Songbird in a golden cage
She'd prefer the blue
How I crave the liquor of her song
Poor bird who has done no harm
Verse 2
What harm could she do
She shall be my prisoner her life long
My songbird wants her freedom
Now don't you think I know
Verse 3
But I can't find it in myself
To let my songbird go
I just can't let her go
Verse 4
O lord, when your jeweler's eye
Peers into my soul
O lord, I am overcome with shame
Take me lord and purify
Heal me with a word
Lord, I beg a gift I dare not claim
Verse 5
My songbird wants her freedom
Now don't you think I know
But I can't find it in myself
To let my songbird go
I just can't let her go
