Let me breathe
Cause I’m drowning in your shadow
Let me leave
Respect me do not follow me believe
I can make me own tomorrow
Let me breathe

Does it make
You feel good cause you own me
Does it take
Your puppet strings to hold me
How I ache
As you’re trying to control me

Let me breathe
Let me dance ’till my shoes cry
Let me laugh let me be
Let me dance
Let me choose my life
Let me climb the living tree

Picture this
When you wake up in the morning
And I kiss
Your sorry ass goodbye
What will I miss
There’s nothing I can think of as I leave

Let me dance ’till my shoes cry
Let me laugh let me be
Let me dance let me choose my life
Let me climb the living tree
