by Emily

i always told you i wanna fly
you thought you knew what i meant
you didn't

you always tried to control me
i wouldn't let you
you got mad

we went our separate ways
i hurt you
but not like you hurt me

i never let you in
i wouldn't tell you what was hurting me
you got mad

i told you i was ready to grow my wings
you showed up
i told you to go away

you didn't listen
you were angry and scared
you wanted to help

i wouldn't let you
maybe you did know what i meant
all i wanted was to fly

now i'm ready
i want my wings
there is nothing you can do to help
