Silver lining

Sometimes I wonder
If this cage has set me free,
If I wake up tomorrow
Somewhere wonderful and green,
Will I dance amongst the midnight stars
Or sway within the breeze?

If I ever get to dream
In a castle made of sand,
I will take myself into
A warm and peaceful land,
Or perhaps I will run off
Across a large and gentle hand?

One may never know
What they might want to do,
But I think it would be very hard
to stay and wait for you,
Though if I must I think I will
If you can teach me how to choose.

I see the moon
That is bright and shining,
I see the lights
That are almost blinding,
I'm telling you now and you must remember
That every cloud has a silver lining.
