SET.FREE

Overly cautious, I used to be the one

Who stayed inside her head, never speaking up

Or speaking out

For what I strongly believed in.

Then you opened the door, I crawled through it

Held back for so long by the leash, I was foolish

Finally I let you

Show me the way.

My eyes and heart swing wide around, an orbiting

Soul-star, helium carrying me higher

And higher

I’m lit by your fire.

Undone ribbons are all that is left of the past life

I lived, tied up before but I still forgive

You of the damage done

Now he carries my Sun.
