lyrics

It takes a long time to die to yourself
It takes a long time to kill all those fleshly desires
but I’m so tired of dying for you

and for the first time I’m living for myself
tasting all of the lusts of the flesh, of desire
and I’m on fire, I’m on fire

Beautiful bird why don’t you fly away
Beautiful bird why don't you spread your wings
Beautiful bird why are you lingering still
Beautiful bird why don’t you fly from here

I’m letting you go now, I’ve opened the door
I’m letting you go now, I’m saying goodbye
cuz you have been my closest ally for half my life

Cuz I believed the lie that I can’t make anything
I believed the lie that I can’t make anything good
I believed the lie that I can’t make anything
I believed the lie that I can’t make anything good without you

I’m letting you go now, I’ve opened the door
I’m letting you go now, I’m saying goodbye
cuz you have been my closest ally for half my life

Beautiful bird why don’t you fly away
Beautiful bird why don't you spread your wings
Beautiful bird why are you lingering still
Beautiful bird why don’t you fly from here

It takes a long time to die to yourself
It takes a long time to kill all those fleshly desires
but I’m so tired of dying for you
