Lyrics

Where will a soul like mine find shelter?
I've toughened up my heart 'til it's leather
But my skin is as thin as it was when I was 10
And I cried when the boys' club wouldn't let me in
And when all of the games of my life have been played
Will I find that my worst enemy was always me

Looks like the golden bird has flown I'm going to fly away, fly away home
If anybody's listening, you're free to play along, but
I'm gonna sing the song of my life on my own I'm singing the song of my life

I tell myself I'm doing it for the children
Oh, what I wouldn't do for them
I tell myself that the world needs me, too
Oh, what I wouldn't give to believe that's true
And when all of the days of my life have been tamed
Will I find the flood of memory brings glory or brings shame?

Looks like the golden bird has flown I'm going to fly away, fly away home
If anybody's listening, you're free to play along, but
I'm gonna sing the song of my life on my own I'm singing the song of my life

I hope with age there will be wisdom
And not all my dreams go deaf and dumb
And that my imagination soars farther than before
'Til the wheels of time carry me to that heavenly door

Looks like the golden bird has flown I'm going to fly away, fly away home
If anybody's listening, you're free to play along, but
I'm gonna sing the song of my life on my own I'm singing the song of my life
