Just let me gooooo
Far away
Let me flyyyyy
Far away
Don’t hold me baaaaack ,
I need to go
Spread my wings,
Try new things.

You said you love me
Or was that a lie
If you love me you’d let me try
To find myself all on my own
I know you don’t want to let your little girl gooooo.

But why can’t you see that?
Why can’t you feel that?
Feel that I love him?

But why can’t you see that?
Why can’t you feel that?
Feel that I love him?


Daddy, I remember holding your hand
You were my best man
Today you still are, there won’t be another
Don’t worry, I am not ready to become a mother

I still trust your judgment
Don’t you trust miiiiine??? See I want to flyyyy?
See I want to flyyyy?

View the world from a perceptive of my own
See the world from outside these walls I’v always known
They were once protective and made me feel safe
Know it’s a cage around my heart driving me insane.

(Chorus) Just let me gooooo
Far away
Let me flyyyy
far away
Don’t hold me baaaaack,
I need to go
Spread my wings,
Try new things

(Lead sings over chorus)
You said you love me
Or was that a lie
If you love me you’d let me try
To find myself all on my own
I know you don’t want to let your little girl gooooo.


I want to taste change on my lips
Don’t worry not with a baby on my hips
I do want to see love, I know you know
I want a lover of my own

Why can’t you see that?
Why can’t you feel that?
Feel that I love him?

Why can’t you see that?
Why can’t you feel that?
Feel that I love him?


Daddy, I remember walking hand and hand
Across the miles of warm summer sand
Now daddy, I know you know,
I want to relive those memories with a man of my own.


(Chorus) Just let me gooooo
Far away
Let me flyyyy
far away
Don’t hold me baaaaack,
I need to go
Spread my wings,
Try new things

(Lead sings over chorus)
You said you love me
Or was that a lie
If you love me you’d let me try
To find myself all on my own
I know you don’t want to let your little girl gooooo.


I still trust your judgment
Don’t you trust miiiiine??? See I want to flyyyy?
See I want to flyyyy?

View the world from a perceptive of my own
See the world from outside the walls I’v always known
They were once protective and made me feel safe
Know it’s a cage around my heart driving me insane.

But why can’t you see that?
Why can’t you feel that?
Feel that I love him?

But why can’t you see that?
Why can’t you feel that?
Feel that I love him?


Don’t you see my need to flyyyyy?

This was inspired about a father (maybe a bit of my own) struggling to let his daughter go.

Life is perfect until you sit back and realize how boring it is without risks.

I can feel my dad saying this to me too. It's hard especially when you're daddy's little girl.
