Ballet of an Unhatched Chick

VS. 1
I'm a little birdie, and that is all I'll ever be
Though my legs are sturdy, I don't know where they're taking me
I'm tappin' out a prayer to give me strength to break apart
the orange and spotted membrane fear has built around my heart

CHORUS
Promise you someday, I'm gonna break out
and leave my shell behind
Until that someday, when I finally break out

VS. 2
The sky above's been fallin' since my momma pushed me out
I can hear her callin', but why she gotta scream and shout?
‘cause it sounds as if the whole wide world's gone mad and straight to hell
So tell me when it's over and safe for me to leave my shell

CHORUS
Promise you someday, I'm gonna break out
and leave my shell behind
Until that someday, when I finally break out
Don't disturb me here
‘Cause the world can't hurt me here

BRIDGE
Mine is not the only shell you'll see
Still I'm lonely as a chickadee could be

VS. 3
Yes I know it’s senseless hiding in this tiny thing
shorin' up defenses, and hanging on with both my wings
pokin’ out my legs and running blind just to get my kicks
All my life just dancing the ballet of an unhatched chick

CHORUS
Yes I promise you someday, I'm gonna break out
and leave this shell behind
Until that someday when I finally break out
Don't disturb me here, ‘cause the world can't hurt me here
No the world can’t hurt me here
