There is freedom waiting for you on the breezes in the sky and you ask, "what if I fall?" but oh my dear, "what if you fly?"

Has it not been a while since I've sung,
A romantic ballad that made love to my lungs?
Has it not been a while since I've not done,
All the things I was forced and persuaded to shun,

Has it not been a long time since my heart has wept tears of love,
Oh hasn't it been quite a while since I've placed wishes on the stars above,

Seasoned I am now, innocent I used to be,
Ignorance is the illusion of bliss, yet what an illusion it was for me,

Some times I do forget my infinities looking at the night sky,
As all of the memories come floating by,
Isn't it brilliant how I deny?
The illusion of bliss, the joy of love,

Too caught up in my rules, too caught up in my pride,
What fine lies I live? How my emotions I hide?

Yet who will look for me now haha,
I'm too far gone in faith, too out of sight,
Out of the illusion of bliss, into the guiding wings of light,
Oh Father! You know it do you not? How I put up this internal fight,

I am insane in truth, in this black coal I finally see the white,
The hue of ash, the cost colour of a dove,
How long has it been since I stopped believing in love?
