Lyrics

Sad new dayNo sunshine for you again - just greyThis well of rainAlways another bucketful at the end of the chain    You never got to race    Though you showed up at the starting gate    every dayDying on the vineHas no-one picked your fruit to taste after all this time?They would findAll 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 flyCurse your wingsTired of not having any use for the damn thingsBorn to singBut 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
