Courtney Cox ~ Like a Bird

Like a bird to the sky
Now is my chance to rise
With my wings stretched wide
I shall hold a breath and glide
With the wind beneath me
What a beautiful day it shall be

It may seem irrelevant at the time
But you shall soon realise
It was destiny that got in my way
Now is the time for me to meet my fate
And as I fall story after story
There’s no need for you to worry

As the ground rises to meet my face
Everything will be in place
I will no longer need to run
The life in me will be none
I won’t have to hang my head in shame
Because I was the one to win the game

  1. I love your comparison, Courtney. The speaker has a very strong instinct for survival.
