Time after time we
Walk pass the window
And never see the ashes on the ground
Night after night
Watching the sky move
But never feel the earth spinning around

I didn't see you fallin'
I couldn't hear you callin'
Born with eyes wide open
Never learn to see

I never meant to hurt you
Was right there crying with you
Why do we harm the only thing we want to be?

Trying to follow
Every footstep
I feel so lost along the way
Reading the scripture
Straight from the gospel
Never understanding what they say, yeah

I didn't see you fallin'
I never heard you' callin'
I've got my eyes wide open
But haven't learned to see, yeah

I never meant to hurt you
Was right there crying with you
Why do we harm the only thing we want to be?

And I just gotta be
Me
I just gotta be
Me

Yeah

I didn't see you fallin'
I never heard you callin'
Got my eyes wide open
But never learned to see, yeah

And I never meant to hurt you
Was right there crying with you
We only cage the very thing we want to free

I just wanna be
And I just wanna be
I just gotta be, uh
I just wanna be
Uh, I gotta be
Uh, I wanna be
Got to, got to
I got to, got to be me
I just wanna be
Oh, I wanna be
Oh yeah, oh yeah
