The flies by your window with their long black tongues
Will hover until you swat them and they hide down in the grass
When you take your last breath will you realize you were loved
By the small ones who were always waiting to be let in?

The flies by your window with their wide gray wings
Reflecting the light that the sun to you brings
The sun shines his fire on every creature below
So I’m proud to know we share the light

I know your heart is heavy with the burdens you’ve endured
You’re a phoenix so reluctant to begin your life anew
But your wings are so much wider and lovelier than my own
We could fly anywhere, but we stay just where we are

The flies by their window with your jewel red eyes
Could fly anywhere but they stay by your side
And you, fairest creature, with your wild, red wings,
Will you ever let yourself go free?
