Abandoned I lie here, locked in my cage,
Facing all my fears, coming of age.
Fists clenched around bars, head rests on steel;
Tears stream down my cheeks, the pain that I feel.
Crying out for you, anguished and strained,
Living without you, the ultimate pain;
Shaking the cell door, I beg to be free,
From this prison, to which only you hold the key.
Innocence pleading, yet still I am held,
Locked away here, in my cold lonely cell;
Peer through the barred door, I cannot lie;
Left here to suffer, starve and to die.
Yet crying is futile, my suff’ring is true,
In a life full of pain, a life without you;
Abandoned I am, by the love that you gave;
Abandoned I am, locked up here in my cage.
