Love song flow
From my radio
While life blurrs
Along the road.

My body drives as my mind relives
Our past episodes -
Happy times
Now tainted 'til it seems
Sweetness was their crime.

Watching a bird take wing
Feeling the same
Joy that flight must bring -
Even when its not a game.
Take Wing.

Deep parallel ditches define the right track.
The lines lead me forward but also look back.
Expansion ahead and convergence behind -
The vanishing point is a trick of the mind.

Watching a bird take wing
Feeling the same
Joy that flight must bring -
Even when its not a game.
Take Wing.

Horizons and highways are moving yet still.
The distance reduces the greatest of hills.
Newtonian motion has come up to speed -
Returning to rest the most difficult deed.

Watching a bird take wing
Feeling the same
Joy that flight must bring -
Even when its not a game.
Take Wing.

They told me I was going too high
Not to shatter when you let me fall.
But holding back would crusify
What can't survive kept small.

Watching a bird take wing
Feeling the same
Joy that flight must bring -
Even when its not a game.
Take Wing.

I never thought the road would lead
To pain escaping flight.
The chain and cage awaiting me
Were hidden from my sight.
How could I know the wary flee
Before the check and mate?
I thought my trust would carry me
Beyond the prison gates.

Then the song ended,
A commercial blared on,
And I realized the bird I'd seen
Was nothing like a swan.

Watching a bird take wing
Feeling the same
Joy that flight must bring -
Even when its not a game.
Take Wing.
