Break Free

Her eyes when young the world perceived
So soft, so calm, so warm
But now sitting here she only sees
That she sits alone
Sometimes she feels like a new begining
She can't, hold back strong emotions

She tells herself she's got to
Keep control and slow down
Deep inside she knows there's
Feelings trying to break free
Trying to break free

She longs to let the child inside
Dance and run and play
To see what that child would do
And what that child would say
Sometimes she'll sit thinking
She can't hold back strong emotions

The room starts spinning, round and around
She covers her ears when there's barely a sound
Opens her mouth like she's something to say
But with no one to listen, she waits

She tries to keep an open mind
Closed behind a door
To eat, to lie, to go to sleep
She knows there's something more
Sometimes she lies dreaming
She can't, hold back strong emotions

She tells herself she's got to
Keep control and slow down
Deep inside she knows there's
Feelings trying to break free
Trying to break free
