Who's that talking? I heard someone speak to me
It came from within, a voice that's crying to be free
But I'm a puppet and that is all
My life's the strings and that's all

Free me
I want to live my life as it was planned
I want to take my Father's hand
And I want to know forgiveness
I want to start again
Oh take away these strings
And set me free

How can this be, tell me what is happening
'Cause I'm just a puppet, I tied myself into these strings
That weave their silk around my life
And lead me on, and that is all

Free me
I want to live my life as it was planned
I want to take my Father's hand
And I want to know forgiveness
I want to start again
Oh take away these strings
And set me free

But if I cut my strings surely I'll only fall down
What manner of joke's this, a puppet changed into a clown?
Don't jest with me I know my place and here I'll stay
To strings I'm tied therefore a puppet I must be
I'll only move when my strings pull that part of me
And that is all

Free me
I want to live my life as it was planned
I want to take my Father's hand
Step into the promised land
I want to learn to dance, yes I do

Happy ever after is the way I'm going to be
When I let your love come into me
The masks of grief and laughter you'll take away from me
And from these strings you'll forever

Free me
I want to live my life as it was planned
I want to take my Father's hand
And I want to know forgiveness
I want to start again
Oh take away these strings

Free me, I want to live my as it was planned
And so that I can stand
I want to take my Fathers hand
And step into the promised land
I'm going to learn to dance, yes I am
