falling, not flying

don't tell me, let me be

you see, you don't see

i can't fail, it would break me

so i'm not going to try

just let me be, the me i am

 

don't try to change me

this is who i am, this is who i'll be

i hate saying this, yet a fear of failure is what it is

i can't fail the one thing i love the most

you see, you don't see

just let me be, the me i am

 

smell it in the air, the fear of rejection

lingering in my heart, but holding it in my hands

ever so tightly, but yet so gently

see, you cannot force me, dont make me try

i fall, not fly

just let me be, the me i am
