lyrics

It was so easy being by your side/ I didn't need anything just you in my life/ and though I tried and tried to please you I couldn't please me/ cause I was caged by my own leisure and/ it was so crippling see/
my hands were tied my voice was lost my spirit paid the cost/ I didn't know to let you go I was afraid but not/ anymore

You know you wanna hold on but/ you can't hold on to me/ because I'm one with my freedom/ gotta go/ gotta let me breathe/ You know you wanna hold on but/ you can't hold on to me/ because I'm one with my freedom/ gotta go/ gotta let me breathe/

I change like the seasons and still you remain/ I wish I could be what you wanted but I'm not the same/ I've got my mind made up on being anything I please/ My desires they won't be limited/ not to you and me/ see cause/
my hands were tied my voice was lost my spirit paid the cost/ I didn't know to let you go I was afraid but not/ anymore

You know you wanna hold on but/ you can't hold on to me/ because I'm one with my freedom/ gotta go/ gotta let me breathe/ You know you wanna hold on but/ you can't hold on to me/ because I'm one with my freedom/ gotta go/ gotta let me breathe/

And if only you could see how I need to fly then we could be fine/ but you hold me/ like an animal caged and I'm just a slave to the life/ that you showed me/ fortune I couldn't dream form my love but I need to be free/ to do only/ what I need to do for me and not for you/

You know you wanna hold on but/ you can't hold on to me/ because I'm one with my freedom/ gotta go/ gotta let me breathe/ I know I wanna hold on but/ I'm gonna hold on to me/ because I'm one with my freedom/ gotta go/ gotta let me breathe/
