THE SEAGULL

Words and Music by Caroline Waters

Hey you
I wanted to ask you 'bout a story I heard
Is it true that a seagull went over land and sea
In order to learn what he could be
To fly because he wanted to be really free

Tell me
Was he really free or was he just wasting time
When he died without any family or food
Only the knowledge to fly real high
What a scary goodbye

He wanted to explore
What he thought would give him more
He said no to a normal life
With fish and friends and wife

He was living the life he was giving
When he dared to let go
How could he know
That the show would be worth what he went through
Was it the earth that told him to
Get on his wings so he could teach
What nobody could preach

He wanted to explore
What he thought would give him more
He said no to a normal life
With fish and friends and wife

Oh, please tell me
If I want to be just as crazy as he
Can I fly if I try to be honest with myself
If I don't deny who I can be
Get on my wings so I can see the seagull fly
