Spread out your wings
Come on, baby – it’s your time to fly today
Our misfortune stings
Pour forth your ecstasy – will it take away
Our despondency?

Bring me out of captivity…
Producing calamity…
I can’t reach for His light –  
I’m buried far below…
Midnight’s as dark as the cawing crow 
I CAN’T CLIMB…due to my lack of energy 
Fortify me by your might 

Spread out your wings
Wake up, darling…wake up to reality – 
Open up your window . . .
Our sundrenched spirits brings
Happiness to the hungry, arduous world 
His sincerity bestow
Miracles & eternal peace instead of 
remorse & catastrophe

Shield me with your radiance
Give me a taste of your jubilance…
Your voluptuous essence  
YOUR Pure, holy Sustenance… 
Not their truculence…
Their arrogance… Their reluctance… 
Their defiance… their unfeeling essence,
Evincing their callous hearts of stone
And crafting it, open to the public
Open to the world of woe

Spread out your wings 
Keep on believing, dearest – 
It’s not your time to die…
Your face is doused in dismay
Your melody still rings
In my ears… sticking to me like a broken record...
Will it shed a tune of delight today? 
Is it a cure to our tragedy? 

Drag me out of captivity… 
I’m sick of all of this cruelty…
I’ve fallen into a pit of obscurity– 
GIVE ME a taste of your effulgence
I’m unchained from my captivity…
Am I surely free? Where shall I flee? 
 Daylight’s as bright as the dove, fluttering gaily 
I’m incapable of flight…due to my lack of wings

Strengthen me throughout my plight! ~  ~  ~ 
  How did you make my high spirits soar upright? ~  ~  ~
