lyrics

You saw the fall when I clipped my wings
I had it all when I wasn't running

See I was tending towards decay
when you took me in your shelter.
When you asked if I would stay
for you said that I was welcome

But still I went away, a heart so full of longing.
A word to fell dismay buried in my belly.

There's a forest in your eyes
There's an ocean in your language
And it's swelling like my pride
It is deep and it is dang'rous

You saw the fall when I clipped my wings
I had it all when I wasn't running

Still I went away, my lungs so nearly empty.
The fire in my veins coursing through my body

See I was tending towards decay!

If you offered me your hand
I would name you as athena
Like a goddess you would stand
and on earth would be no equal

You saw the fall when I clipped my wings
I had it all when I wasn't running.

But I'm always running
