- What Matters
Take these chains away from me;
I am not your slave to keep.
What pity brings out this change
That tells you about all your pain.
Leave that place where shadows crawl,
For it's a place that you appall.
Where there's darkness visible
Is where escape's impossible.
Sad to say, I must refuse,
For your life's not mine to choose.
You know that I still love you,
But your choices are now few.
Take with you your longing kiss,
for I've already found bliss.
Your words cannot bind my heart;
You didn't know where to start.
In time, I know you will learn
That there'll be a time to yearn.
I'm not the right person though;
You'll find the one who'll make it so.
Don't hate me for my true words;
I wish to fly like a bird.
You'll always have a special place,
But please - cut me from your chase.
