Love or Freedom

The chains are released
Others expect me to weep
Over something that was inevitable
And as I feel the weight being lifted from my shoulders
I look back
And decide that I don’t want to go back to that kind of life
Now I am free
Nothing to drag me down
Yet nothing to carry me
No one to pick me up when I fall
And when I fall, who should I expect
I am no longer loved
Yet I am no longer caged
I can’t decide
Which one is more important
Love or Freedom
But life must carry on
With or without freedom
With or without love
I think I would rather be free than loved
But I think I would rather be loved than be free
Until I can decide
My life stands still
In this black abyss

While these spiked walls surround me
With the stories of our short relationship
I feel like I’m glad that you’re gone

I wish I could know what’s going on
I don’t know what went wrong
I feel like it has been a hundred years
And I still can’t believe you’re gone

Maybe I feel like I still want a relationship
Yet I don’t want to be hurt again
I still can’t decide
Love or Freedom
