I Live This Life for Me - Lyrics

Don't hold me too tightly
Don't meld me to your design
Don't mock me with duties
Don't rob me of what is mine
My life, and the gift of being free
To live this life for me

Before me lie landscapes
Which lure me to worlds beyond
My goal is my journey
My soul is a vagabond
Confine it, and all to soon you'll see
I live this life for me

Don't crowd me with questions
Don't love me by force
You'll win me by letting me go
A river must ramble
Must find its own course
A freedom to follow its low

And though I may wonder
I know I am all I need
Wherever I wander
I'll never let others lead
Don't make me be someone I can't be
I live this life for me

Don't take me for granted
Don't make me your better half
I shan't be your trophy
That can't be my epitaph
One thing, only one I guarantee
To live this life for me

A soul bordered fettered is quick to take fright
For fear it may sicken and die
An eagle kept captive will one day take flight
Returning once more to the skies

So now will you free me
Or how will my life begin
I will let you love me
I won't let you wall me in
I can't live my giving
What makes my life worth living

This life for live for me
For me
