Free and I'm tamed is how you've grown
Settling down ain't your nature roots you've never owned
I need you but I ain't such a child
Think I could cage a bird born born to be wild

[Chorus]
Johnny Raven
By and by
You're going to leave my nest
Another nest to try

Johnny Raven
I believe your love
And you're going leave me
When your restless heart says fly fly fly
Me I'm a girl few will love so deep
Ain't it a shame I wonder one day I can't hold to keep
You're Hungary for new thrills and stray you will
You got anew and need one bird never can fill

[Chorus]

Johnny Raven
I believe your love
But you're going leave me
When your restless heart says fly fly fly

[Repeat: x3]
Johnny Raven
By and by
You're going to leave my nest
And I'm going to die
