Gilded cage

Your need to control my life

Has undermined our relationship

You’ve put me in a gilded cage

And think that I should be happy

My pleas for freedom fall on deaf ears

But don’t be complacent because one day

I will steal the key and set myself free

A cage is a cell even when clothed in luxury
