Why do you let me dream my dream
when you want to take it away?
why do you let me live with hope
when you don't mean what you say?

Your poisonous words have cut too deep,
pain throbs and emanates from within,
so I've built a castle around my heart,
so I can't go back to what has been.

These solid chains have held me down,
seemingly forever under your control,
so I'm tired of living with your lies,
so I'm tired of living without a soul.

Why can't I just find the courage
when my heart continues to yearn?
why can't I just break away
when I know that you'll never learn?
