I wanna see my name in lights.

I wanna see the people come to listen to my art.

I wanna hear the crowd roaring the lines they know.

I wanna wind my way up the crystal stair laid long ago,

and I won't let you stop me.

 

I wanna to shine on after I'm gone.

I wanna be remembered for what I've done.

I wanna look down from the top of the ladder.

I wanna climb step by step till I am what I am,

and I won't let you stop me.

 

I wanna banish you from my memory.

I wanna let your hatred go.

I wanna see the things I know I shouldn't leave me.

I wanna look down and spit on your legacy,

and you cannot stop me.

 

I wanna be at the alter on that special day.

I wanna see my family smiling.

I wanna be happy with him for my entire life.

I wanna make sure that you're not there,

and there's no goddamn way you can stop me.

 

I wanna live life to it's fullest.

I wanna be so far away from then.

I wanna be so much more than you ever could.

I want to be out of your shadow,

and you sure as hell can't stop me.

 

I wanna know that it's all over.

I wanna know you can't hurt me.

I wanna see it as for once, I laugh at your pain.

I wanna see honest tears in your eyes,

and in that, only, can you stop me.

 

I wanna see my name in lights.

I wanna see the people come to listen to my pain.

I wanna hear the crowd roaring the lines they know.

I wanna wind my way up the crystal stair she laid long ago,

and I won't let you stop me anymore.
