fairytale endings aside
Here in the dark now I finally am free
From all the pressure you’re putting on me
Here in the dark I can finally begin to see
Too many years I just took what you said
Let you decide, let you fill up my head
With all these things that I know you believed, and yet
It’s hard to swallow all those
Half truths that you
Tried to feed to me

You told me I was only
As good as you could be
But I finally realized I am better off just me
Just me

Running with you I’ve been running in place
Now I can move and there’s no time to waste
So much to do so I’m off on the endless chase
Of all the dreams I let slide
While you tried to
Turn me into you

Starting today I’m on my way
I’ll stand on my own
I’ll make it alone
