Feathers in my pillow, from birds that fly free...

Feathers in my pillow, from birds that fly free…
Remnants of my life that used to be
Hunted and surrounded by people who manipulate and twist the truth
As they have manipulated and twisted my mind, spirit, and body

Feathers in my pillow, from birds that fly free…
My present is an unhappy existence, going nowhere…never progressing
And suffering more and more every day, dealing with living in fear

Feathers in my pillow, from birds that fly free…
Searching for a path, a way through the woods, shadows and darkness
Pondering taking chances
To make some advances
To escape stagnation

Feathers in my pillow, from birds that fly free…
Holding out hope for a familiar transition to a different setting
Which will open and close doors for me
And allow a better future for all

Feathers in my pillow, from birds that fly free…
Realizing that I can never return to the person I used to be
Heavy sadness fills my heart
I need to let her go in order to live, in order to love

Feathers in my pillow, from birds that fly free…
I must leave in order to survive
I cannot afford to grieve anymore
I need to close this door and open another

Feathers in my pillow, from birds that fly free…
I must believe that there is a chance for a better tomorrow
Through all the loss and pain, there must be some gain
Lessons learned, knowledge forever burned into my mind, heart and soul
I’m ready to move on to a new dawn

And search for the smile
That I used to have and own
That was there all the while…underneath
Needing to be reborn…
