Supposed To Fly

(Morrigan)
January 2, 2012
Morrigan

One of the snow songs of 2010.

Sad new day
No sunshine for you again - just grey
This well of rain
Always another bucketful at the end of the chain

    You never got to race
    Though you showed up at the starting gate
    every day

Dying on the vine
Has no-one picked your fruit to taste after all this time?
They would find
All your juices flowing still on the inside

    You never got to run
    Your wheels only got spun
    night after night

        So you set your dreams aside
        Gave up on the hope of getting to ride
        But the power of it won’t let you forget
        That you were supposed to fly

Curse your wings
Tired of not having any use for the damn things
Born to sing
But no-one ever stayed around to hear those notes ring

    You never got to try
    Never got an answer for why
    you were always passed by - passed by

        So you set your dreams aside
        Gave up on the hope of ever getting to ride
        But the power of it won’t let you forget

        Though you gave it your whole life
        Put up with God knows how much strife
        And so you can’t just forget
        That you were supposed to fly
        You were supposed to fly
