She can because she thinks she can.


I’m in love with what he used to be,
but used to be is history.
Don’t want to be captive anymore
Just open up the door
And I want to be free to fly
And I want to soar high above the sky.
Not be held up in the past
Just look at it and laugh
But it’s going to take some time to be free at last.
What would you do if the world came down?
Crashed and crumbled all around
Would you put your hands in your face?
Well I sure think that is such a waste.
Well I want to be free to fly
And I want to soar high above the sky.
Not be held up in the past
Just look at it and laugh
Well it’s going to take some time to be free at last.
Here I stand before you
Frozen scared don’t know what to do
I just smile and take a breath
Wave goodbye and walk away from the past.
Because I am free to fly
And I can soar high above the sky
I’m not held up in the past
I just looked at it and laughed
Well it took some time but I’m free at last
Free to live free to laugh free to be breath
I’m filled with joy because
I’m free to dream to be whoever I want to be

I kept singing the first line of this song over and over again in my head it just popped into it one day and wouldn't leave until i wrote down lyrics to a song. I like to think that the line was lonely in my head and needed a friend. in this song i enjoy belting the chorus. The story line I would have to say is a relationship ended but there was really no closure and she realizes I need to take this one day at a time and eventually like any wound it will heal and eventually she realizes that confronting that person or finding a new better experience was how to fix it.
