Verse 

   G                                  Em  
'I could have been a giant,' said the bonsai tree,  
     C                Am                D  
'but someone bound my roots and held me down.'   
   G                                         Em  
'I could have reached the heavens,' said the snowy owl,   
          C                    D              G 
'but they clipped my wings and kept me on the ground.'   

C D G 'I think I heard them tell me that they loved me; C Am D that they'd care for me, without them I would die. G Em But what's the use of roots if you can't spread them? C D G What's the use of wings if you can't fly?'
Verse G Em 'I could have been a singer,' said the Myna bird, C Am D 'but they caged me and they told me what to say.' G Em 'I could have run forever,' said the pony, C D G 'but they bridled me and made me go their way.'
C D G 'I think I heard them tell me that they loved me; C Am D that they'd care for me forever so it seems. G Em But what's the use of voices without freedom? C D G What's the use of living others' dreams?'
Bridge C D G Why do people cage the things they love the most? C Am D Is it simply that they fear to be alone? G Em If you give your love its freedom, it may stay a while. C D G If it leaves you, it was never yours to own. Verse G Em 'I could have found adventure,' said the angelfish, C Am D 'now my world's so small there's nowhere left to go.' G Em 'I could have ruled a kingdom,' said the lion, C D G 'now this land inside my head is all I know.'
C D G 'I think I heard them tell me that they loved me; C Am D that they'd care for me, and tell me it's alright. G Em But what's the use of life without adventure? C D G What's the use of strength if you can't fight?'
Bridge C D G Why do people cage the things they love the most? C Am D Is it simply that they fear to be alone? G Em If you give your love its freedom, it may stay a while. C D G If it leaves you, it was never yours to own.
C D G 'I think I heard them tell me that they loved me; C Am D that they'd care for me, without them I would die. G Em But what's the use of roots if you can't spread them? C D G What's the use of wings if you can't fly?'
