Holding tight as blood
Seeps from my nails
Daddy told me there’d be days like these
When higher powers quench their thirst
On sour wine that’s at its worst
Their good intentions go south on a chilly breeze

So to lose the grip
And begin to fall
No longer caring
To make sense of it all
The hero who came to save the day
Took a wrong turn along the way

The needy crying of a babe never ends
Who’s left to turn to
When the willpower bends
There’s a need for a warm embrace
Are the angels on stand by from saving grace

Standing beside myself
No room to turn
The flame is smothered
And the light no longer burns
And just to be
And just to see
Who is it to be me
When I am truly free

And how I wish the passion would subside
So it would be easy
To get of this stinking ride
Rip it up and throw it away
Take all those pennies saved for a rainy day

And just be
And just see
Who is it to be me
When I am totally free
And just be
And just see
Who is it to be me
When I am totally free
