Turning Us Into Birds (The Tragedy of Anna and Lee)

Our feathers dance so gracefully and with such poise
As they float down to the ground
Only to stepped upon and forgotten,
But for a moment you see them,
And for a moment you love them

She said "Did you see that beautiful feather, I wonder which bird it came from?"

She picked it up off the ground and place inside her book to keep forever, she turned her pale blue eyes skyward and wondered, what it felt like to be a bird.

He said to her "Oh Anna, won't you bring your head out of those clouds"

He never understood her, until she jumped off of the bridge, just dying to fly.

Buildings shouldn't burn because they're made out of metal
Much like our hearts when it's been broken too many times.
Someone find the architect and get the key to the lock because
I'm ready to let you into mine.

He hadn't turned on a light in 3 days, his eyes didn't want to see.
He didn't look in the mirror for a week, because he knew that he was crying
and didn't want to face his weakness.
37 missed calls, 18 from his mother, 5 from her friends...bill collectors were the others.
"Anna", he just screamed at night, "I wish I could have loved you, the way you wanted to be loved!"

When I was a child,
I thought like a child,
I saw as a child,
I played as a child,
Now that I'm an adult
I wish I had time for childish things.

Anna had always wanted children, but he couldn't give them to her.
He had held her back so much, he understood why she had to fly.
He was like a chain around her neck, harnessing her to the ground
If only he had realized that she knew more about life than he could ever hope to
She saw the beauty in things that he could never see.

As I,
Stared down at the ground,
I feel my body become like a cloud
I feel so light now,
twirling down.

Swallowed alive by shame and agony,
He never even left the house.
Until one bright morning, when the sun came in just right.
He walked to the bridge where she left him, and decided to learn to fly.
