Lyrics[]

Used to think I was flying solo
Hanging from a ledge trying not to let go
Ever since I could remember
I've looked over my shoulder

I don't rely on any dark knights
I roam along because feels right just like
Growing up when you're on your own
Just makes you grow older

And I've been on my own for so long but

Then you came and rescued me
You showed up and I joined the party
I'll never be the same
You make me feel I've got wings
I'm flying higher than the things that weigh mе down
Now that you're around
I'm feeling like a bird of prey
I'm feeling likе a bird of prey

I do believe there are things we can't hide
Like a diamond shining from the inside
The only difference is the mask that you wear

You shouldn't dwell on your grievances
Just forget about your weaknesses
I'll never be alone as long as you're there

And I've been on my own for so long

Then you came and rescued me
You showed up and I joined the party
I'll never be the same
You make me feel I've got wings
I'm flying higher than the things that weigh me down
Now that you're around
I'm feeling like a bird of prey
I'm feeling like a bird of prey

C is for the criminal who doesn't need a cape... don't need the fucking credit to make you hesitate.
A is for the ass whooping if you mess with me. I be steal, I grow hungry, everything in between.
Double S is for surviving on the streets all alone. Don't need a stupid family I can handle on my own.
C A Double S A N D R A. Got three watches, ate a diamond.
That's me.
Cassandra Cain.

Prey
I'm feeling like a bird of prey
I'm feeling like a bird of prey
I'm feeling like a bird of prey
I'm feeling like a bird of prey
I'm feeling like a bird of prey
You already know my name.
Don't fuck with Cassandra Cain.

Trivia[]

  • Ballad of Cassandra Cain was released as part of Ella Jay Basco's EP Album, Middle School, produced by Korepina Records.
  • Ella Jay Basco plays Cassandra Cain in Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) (February 7th, 2020). She wrote this song for Margot Robbie (who plays Harley Quinn in the film) while shooting the movie.
  • The phrase "Bang-a-rang" appears beneath the lyrics "That's me, Cassandra Cain" (2:15) in the song's official music video. Ella's uncle, Dante Basco (famed for playing Rufio in the movie Hook (1991), amongst other roles), left it there as an easter egg.
