chorus 1
I Wanted to Fly, I wanted to soar
  I needed to find out what was outside that locked door
  I wanted to run. I had to be free
  Love was the lock, the leash, the load that weighed heavy on me

chorus 2
I Wanted to Fly, I wanted to soar
  I needed to find out what was outside that locked door

  Love was the lock, the leash, the load that weighed heavy on me
   
2.
Sometimes we get old and never get wise

coda Love was your heart, your soul, your wings.
  You never needed me.
