They belong not to man but to the countries of junipers and sage, deep aromas, messes, and freedom

Don't tell me I'm fragile
when it come to fighting things,
I'm braver than you think I am.

Don't tell me what i should think,
God gave me my own mind,
I can think for myself.

Don't tell me I can't do it,
I need you to believe in me
when i can't.

Don't tell me I look down
I know what's deep inside me,
I'm just afraid to let it out.

Don't tell me who i am
I'm not ready to accept myself
As the person i really am beneath.

Don't tell me I'm overreacting
or that I'll get over it,
It hurts me now and that's all that matters.

Tell me that you love me,
hold me in your arms
until I'm ready to stand on my own.
