Lyrics

ONE SMALL CAGE
 
©1995, Bar Scott ASCAP 
 

Kneeling by the bed each night Michael prayed his soul to keep
As mommy and dad stood watch
he heard hymns and the ticking of the clock

He had one small cage, one small cage
That he could live in

He’s sleepless now for hours, he cries out
With the vengeance of a child
If I should die tonight,
Oh, please, my Lord, I pray my soul to take

He had one small cage, one small cage, that he could live
They built one small cage, one small cage to fence him in

He ran free at 18 when the gate was finally opened
He found men, he found love, he found music he could turn to
When the doctor found the signs
“You’re positive, just months to live”

He built one small cage, one small cage for him to live in
One small cage, one small cage to fence him in

Oh no, no, no, no
In a note his mom replied,
“you’ve brought it on. God’s will be done!”

She built one small cage, one small cage for him to live in
One small cage, one small cage to hem him in
One small cage, one small cage, one small cage
