I have played the part
I have all but lost my soul
And I have sacrificed
For what it's worth, I just don't know

In the silence of my heart
There is a distant call
Yeah
It beckons me to stand apart

So I set out on my own
Just to breathe again
Touch the light that calls me home
Just to reach the end
Where I'm free to breathe again

Through the suffering
Through the misery and pain
Never anything
But the will to see the day
When the promise might be born
Light the spark within
Yeah
'Cause I can't take it anymore

So I set out on my own
Just to breathe again
Touch the light that calls me home
Just to reach the end
Where I'm free to breathe again

Well I am free to roam
And set out on my own
To rise above the hands that try to hold me down
Before the end, I know I'll breathe again
To find my way

So I set out on my own
Just to breathe again
Touch the light that calls me home
Just to reach the end

I'm leaving today
I'm leaving today
I'm leaving today

    Wishing someone that is not actually willing to play his cars for you... The distance breaks it all... I'm moving on!

    That's where i am. Giving all and not getting back.. I need to breathe again. I can't give to him anymore. I need to live ... The pain was too much. Moving on..

    Moving on and out of this relationship... I stayed. But moving on! I gave to a man who did not care but i kept giving... No more... I'm moving on and breathing my own air!
