Elton John - Cage the Songbird

  • Elton John - Cage the Songbird


    Sober in the morning light
    Things look so much different
    To how they looked last night
    A pale face pressed to an unmade bed
    Like flags of many nations flying high above her head

    The cellophane still on the flowers
    The telegram still in her hand
    As whispers circulate all day
    Their back-stage baby princess passed away

    And you can cage the songbird
    But you can't make her sing
    And you can trap the free bird
    But you'll have to clip her wings
    `Cause she'll soar like a hawk when she flies
    But she'll dive like an eagle when she dies

    Promises of no more lies
    Fell flat upon an empty stage
    Before the audience arrived
    A return in time to the cheaper seats
    She never knew what lay beneath
    Just a dated handbill they found between the sheets

    Let down before the final curtain
    A shallow heart that left her cold
    She left in rouge upon the mirror
    A circled kiss to the faithful fans who'd miss her
