"Life is about taking risks, and Death is about wishing you took more." From the movie 'The Bounty Hunter'

My heart lies behind enemy lines
It’s beating to your drum
It rises and falls to your voice
Your sweet whispers give it life; give it a reason to beat
Sometimes you love me, and then you hate me
But I always love you no matter what you do
But every time you turn on me, my heart falls and it cracks a little more

Round and round we go, this love- hate relationship has a hold on me, and I’m grasping for breath
Grasping for hope
For love
I’m begging to feel again; to live again

I’m tired of feeling like your Quasimodo
Locked away in a tower, hiding from the world
Hiding from myself
Let me go, Frodo!
Let me go!

I want to see the stars shine
I want to feel the wind blow
I want to experience life’s great mysteries
I want to join the festival
I want to be free
I want to live for me, because I realized that I just can’t please you
