What I'm Thankful For: Dreams

*the minuette*

All but dreams, hold me down
Clip my wings, watch me drown
Fall from grace, strike the ground
Caged below, not a sound

Only I
Lose the sky
Straining my
Frantic eye
Piercing cry
Desperate sigh
Feathers fly
Days go by

Rob my soul, steal my crown
Claw for fame, crave renown
Search for light, darkness found
All but dreams, hold me down
