Lyrics

There you go in your new car, one last wave and you disappear

Mom and I on the front porch looking toward a lonely year

You've set yourself a fast pace, dreams of change and claims to stake

 

You're charging like the cavalry, so ready to engage

Looking back on who you've been like a bird on her empty cage

 

I dreamed you came back someone new, just as strange as a long-lost twin

Are you someone I don't recognize or the same fine girl within?

And as you're surging forward will you give more than you take?

 

You're charging like the cavalry, so ready to engage

Looking back on who you've been like a bird on her empty cage

 

When you wade in life's big river, you won't slow its current down

If you want to hook the big ones you've got to stand your ground

And don't turn around

 

And though this means you'll never really call this home again

Know that you can still be wild and free if you come back now and then

As you get a little older, you will feel this same small ache

 

You're charging like the cavalry, so ready to engage

Looking back on who you've been like a bird on her empty cage

Don't look back forever like a bird on her empty cage
