Lyrics

(You once said you loved me
But, you didn't mean a word
And I believed every single one
I wanted to keep on believing
But, you've taken that away
You've given me the strength not to love
After that, I will be free)

You once said you loved me
(With the words of a thousand lies)
You once said you loved me
(But you didn't look in my eyes)
You once said you loved me
(You don't get what you don't believe)
You once said you loved me
(Actors only help misconceive)

Oh, I'm standing at your door
In the middle of the night
And I don't know what to do
And I don't know what is right, oh
When you come along
And I finally see your face
Will I crumble to the floor?
Will I fall for your embrace? Oh

And you sit in your birdcage.

And you sit in your birdcage
Waiting to be set free
And you sit in your birdcage
Waiting to be set free
And you sit in your birdcage
Waiting to be set free
And you sit in your birdcage

You once said you need me
(Do you know what a promise means?)
You once said you need me
(And the words I hear in my dreams?)
You once said you need me
(You throw me up against the wall)
You once said you need me
(Then you pick me up when I fall)

Oh, you stalk me in my dreams
When I sleep without your hand
But no matter how I try
You might never understand, oh
I wanna lead you through
So that you can finally see
But if I am guiding you
Then who is that guiding me? Oh

And you sit in your birdcage
(Fly away)
Waiting to be set free
(One sweet day)
And you sit in your birdcage
(No more pain)
Waiting to be set free
(Unafraid)
And you sit in your birdcage
(By my side)
Waiting to be set free
(Every night)
And you sit in your birdcage
(I won't cry)
(I won't hide)

No more unanswered calls
No love in which to fall
No memory recall
'Cause you will be set free
No more long-distance games
No mind to go insane
No sweet seductive pain
'Cause you will be set free
No more convincing lies
No teary eyed goodbyes
No need to even try
'Cause you will be set free
No past that came before
Unlock my heart and soul
And open up the door
So you can set me free

No more unanswered calls
No love in which to fall
(Fly away)
No memory recall
'Cause you will be set free
(One sweet day)
No more long-distance games
No mind to go insane
(No more pain)
No sweet seductive pain
'Cause you will be set free
(Unafraid)
No more convincing lies
No teary eyed goodbyes
(By my side)
No need to even try
'Cause you will be set free
(Every night)
No past that came before
Unlock my heart and soul
(I won't cry)
And open up the door
So you can set me free
(I won't hide)

And you sit in your birdcage
(So you can set me free)

And you sit in your birdcage
Waiting to be set free
And you sit in your birdcage
Waiting to be set free

And you sit in your birdcage
