Let go and live.

first verse

I close my eyes
to keep my soul from shinning through
try to disguise
the brokenness that lies inside
the dust is settling now
whats left is all that remains
a tattered me a broken past
a girl who wants to be set free
its who I am

C 1

pull myself up off the floor
wipe the dust from my brow
and break free from the chains that bind me
im gonna leave the past behind me
and make a new way
spread my tattered wings and fly

verse 2

I open my eyes
no longer hiding behind empty words and lies
no way to disguise it
im gonna let my soul shine through
walk past the broken ruins
just leave it all behind
as I face a new horizon
my smile breaks free
I am finally free

c 2

pull myself up off the floor
wipe the dust from my brow
and sew the rips in my bleeding heart
so I can feel again
my chains are far behind me
and the tears fall from my eyes
as I find my way
flying as far as my scared wings will take me

v 3

my soul is shinning brightly now
my heart is finally healed
no matter how many times
you chain me down
I will always break free
so just watch me soar to new possibility
don't get in my way
I wont let you chain me down again
I was meant to be free

The author's comments:

This piece was originally much smaller the first verse was a poem I had written. One of my friends gave me the idea to turn one or more of my poems into song lyrics and this is what I came up with. Every thing I write is a piece of my soul. I hope you enjoy.
