In the lyrics, Raphaella wishes she were a bird making circles in the sky. In a 2020 Songfacts interview
, Raphaella explained she used a paraphrased quote from the Persian poet Rumi: "Birds make great sky-circles of their freedom. How do they learn it? They fall, and falling, they're given wings."
She added: "Persian poetry is more like spiritualism, so it permeates into my everyday life and how I see the world."
