She said she loved the way I rose
And how I’d fly and spread my wings
The way I stepped up climbed up
Said goodbye to yesterday’s things
But she would never lift me up
And I would never be enough
To save our dreams and we

Will never be the ones
Because it wasn’t meant for us
Or maybe not for me
Because she never chose to be
And I could never say that we
I could never say

So cut my wings
Release me from every thing
Slice these veins
Because I shouldn’t fly from pain
Cut my wings
And every promised thing

I woke with the sunrise
And slept in the rain
If I changed my wrist’s blood
would it all wash out the same
Because I’ve tried and I’ve tried
I’ve pushed and I’ve died
and she says it’s very lovely
My death was a surprise

So cut my wings
Release me from every thing
Slice these veins
Because I shouldn’t fly from pain
Cut my wings
Cut my wings

She teased my tomorrow
Stole my today
Sisyphus had it easy
I didn’t feel what I wouldn’t say

So try and cut my wings
Release our every thing
Slice these veins
Because I shouldn’t fly from pain
Try and cut these wings
Bleed out tomorrow’s broken ring.
