"Olly Olly Oxen Free" as written by and Meredith Marie Godreau....
Dear day we met,

I just made up my bed,
and now 
I'm kneeling by it.


Dear last July, 

You once were heavy, 

But now I lift you

Over my head like a feather.



It all depends

On whether you're carried away, 

Or whether I pray for something

And hold on to today


I've never been one for chasing

Stars in the starry night

It just seems too easy


I'm gonna be, I'm gonna be

Fine when you want me

Yeah, for the last time,


I'm gonna be, I'm gonna be


Fine when I'm free, 

Yeah, for the last time



Dear consequence, 

Could I shake your hand?

'Cause man, you really got me this time.

Oh, nights I've lost,

Erasing parts tumbling toward the eye of the tiger



It all depends 

On whether I'm carried away

Or whether I stand for something

And stick it to today



I've never been one for grasping straws

Or feeling lost

It just makes me queasy.

I'm gonna be, I'm gonna be

Fine when you want me, 

Yeah, for the last time.

I'm 
gonna be, I'm gonna be, 

Fine when I'm free,

Yeah, for the last time.



Make my head spin again,

Throw me over the edge.

It's all in his kiss again,

Just like momma said.



I'm gonna be, I'm gonna be

Fine when you want me,

Yeah, for the last time.


I'm gonna be, I'm gonna be,
Fine when I'm free,

Yeah, for the last time.
