I'm afraid, I'm afraid, I'm afraid
of the things that I never will make
of the places where I'll never go
and the people who I'll never know

I'm afraid, I'm afraid, I'm afraid
of the hours I lost yesterday
and I don't know, I don't know, I don't know
how my story could end up as so.

In the death-shrunken stillness of doubt
love, it seems, is the only way out.
When I miss, pick it up, try again
but this Fear always wins in the end

I let go, I let go, I let go.
Canyons make best for rivers to flow
but it seems more often than does not
that from Freedom my heart remains caught.

Well I don't want this story on repeat
I want a world that really meets my needs
I want it all, I want it all to be
true and free.

So I lift up my aim to the sky
steady arm, shoot my dreams high and wide.
They can say what they want, people talk.
Little words never strong as my heart

And I am free, I am free, I am free!
from this hold everything I now see
in my history I'll ride my own lines
'til my music folds death over time.
