How can I ever let go?
Because hanging on so tight
Is all I ever have known
I know I’ve got to dive
Right over the edge
If I’m gonna come alive
I want to come alive

Teach me how to let go
'Cause hanging on so tight
Is all I ever have known
I’m willing now to dive
Right over the edge
So help me come alive
I want to come alive

I try so hard to be free
From all the things that keep me
Apart from you and your love for me
My hands are tied, I can't breath, I can't fly
Away from the shadow that’s hanging over me

I want to know something real
Wake up to discover a heart
That’s finally beating
I want you to know
How I feel, how desperate
I’ve become for your love
Its, all I’ve, ever needed

Set me free from memories
All these thoughts are binding me
That I somehow have got to fight
On my own
