I need to live my own life,
Not hidden in the shadows.
I want to shine the brightest,
And make my own rainbow.

I need to live my own life,
I need a second chance.
I need to say goodbye,
Without a second glance.

She said everyone needs a chance,
At a fairytale ending.
So she's saying goodbye,
This time she's not pretending.

My boss said we all have different hearts,
Some more misleading than others.
He says he needs to let me go,
I need to try another...

Paths misleading,
Paths so long,
Show me how to sing along.

Teach me hatred,
Teach me trust.
Help me start over,
This I must.

Tell Mother,
And Father too.
I tried adjusting...
At least I wanted to.

I tried my hardest,
This I did,
But, God help me,
I must not forget.

I need a second chance...
So I'm saying goodbye.
I need a second chance,
Please.... Don't cry.
