lyrics

It’s time that you realized who you talk to at night
I am a little bird always tensing for flight
Can I be trusted? I worry I can’t
At least I am who I say I am

I know I’m not living for anyone else
Don’t harbor foolish illusions about my simple self, but
Should you rely on me? I worry you can’t
At least I am who I say I am

Chorus
And some girls out to tell you they’re the one that you need
That’s not me, that’s not me, that’s not me
See, I’m the one you get wary of when you feel you’ve begun to believe
Do you get it? Do you understand? Do you see?

It’s time that you knew just who you’ve let in your heart
I hold a standing ticket for the next plane to depart, and
The feeling that burns in me is aching to fly
Too restless to tell you or say goodbye

Chorus
