I Would Sail (Demo)Demo version of an original song with piano and strings. Arranged and orchestrated with original bridge by Roger Hewett. Lyrics: I've stretched my wings' embrace to the sky and my colors are ready to fly but I'm tied to the ground I am tied to the ground I can see so far from here Conditions are achingly clear But I just spin around I just spin around I would sail clear over the mountain top If my will would have its way But these ties which bind and hold me keep me from gliding away Still I hang here on my own Fragile structure of silk and of bone Pulled so tight I could tear So tight I could tear With my stitches wearing thin I am longing still to begin To take to the air Take to the air I would sail straight over the mountain top If my heart would meet its worth But these ties which bind and guide me keep me from Crashing hard to earth I do not know what keeps me here Be it duty or love or fear But I think that I might. I think that I might. Though I long to be set free, Be the bird I imagine to be, I am only a kite, I am only a kite.
