"Release from Shanghai"


A place where it's warm, for you to rest your head

A place that is calm, to still the pounding in your heart

A place full of silence, to cease the hammering in your mind

A place filled with life, to keep your blood at a rush

A place with shoulders, willing to carry your burdens for you

A place for you, call it home


A reward for you, feel free to set it on a shelf

A gift for you, all the patience that you command

A smile for you, we're not all cold on the inside

A prayer for you, people are only human

A blanket for you, to give to others when they shiver

A place for you, call it home


A world for you, it's what you deserve

A world with people who know, they listen to your words

A world as the gift, a world as the reward

A place for you, call it home


A place where people love you

All the struggle that you need

All of this, if it keeps you here


A place for you, call it home

A place between the shoulder blades

For your lovely wings to go
