I know you were the kind
to be always one branch higher
Anything to be at the top of the tree

When I finished my climb
I knew I was a flier
My heart wanted much more than you and me

Be what you like
Be what you like
Be what you like
Everything else is a lie

Always biting your tongue
You played helpless and quiet
Clinging to restraints you were chained to the ground

I was the tongue-tied boy
Rooted and grounded and bored
Maybe a broken arm was all I needed
