I feel chained, chained down
You shoved me to the ground
I can't run, I can't shout
Just let me out

So heartless, this couldn't mean less
Gonna push it in your face
I'm only human
And I've got something to say

Let me rise, let me fall
Let me breathe
I wanna lose control, I'm not afraid to lose it all
Let me break, let me crawl
'Cause I'll get back up again if you let me fall

If I burn down in this fire
Well, I got myself to blame
I can't stop or give it up
I need to feel the pain

Can you hear me?
Don't come near me
You'll just get in my way
I'm only human
And there's nothing you can say

Let me rise, let me fall
Let me breathe
I wanna lose control, I'm not afraid to lose it all
Let me break, let me crawl
'Cause I will get up again if you let me fall

Say you know who I am
And what I'm about
Then you'll understand that I feel alone
I live my own life

Let me rise, let me fall
Let me breathe
I wanna lose control, I'm not afraid to lose it all
Let me break, let me crawl
'Cause I will get up again if you let me fall

Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
If you let me fall
If you let me
If you let me fall
If you let me fall

I will get up again if you let me fall
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
If you let me fall
If you let me fall
Let me fall

    General CommentI reckon this song is about a guy...a guy that seems to control this girls life and now shes like "LET ME FALL YOU IDIOT!"...Kinda let me "make me own decisions....dont worry mate Its all good okay?". I agree...a girl has to do her own thinking sometimes.

    General CommentThis song is about her being in love and now she's heartbroken and she's telling the guy to let her fall so she can get back again by herself. She asking him to hurt her so she can feel the pain and its gonna make her strong. She asking him to let her hurt in her own way.

    General CommentShe's gaining experience from this bad occurrence with this guy. He's interfering with her and its not helping her learn from her mistakes. In fact, its only making things worse. I like Undiscovered's take on the song.

    General CommentThis song is about wanting to show people that you're stronger than you seem. And you just want to make one mistake, so that people who change their point of view about you. This song really describes me. For my whole life, no one thought of me as a "strong person." Then after I went through a couple things & made some stupid mistakes, people really changed how they saw me. They now see me as a stronger person, which makes me grateful that all ended well.

    General Commentthis song could be applied to a guy, and in the show, i think it is, but you could just apply it to life - like ohitstraquikx said.

    She's saying, Right now, she's being treated like a child (i feel chained// chained down) and to just let her go (just let me out). That she has to make her own mistakes and live her own life (I gotta figure it out// And live my own life ). That she's going to get down sometimes (I’m only human ) amd if she does fall and things go wrong, she can put her self back together again. (i will get up again// if you let me fall)

    General Commenti have always thought this song is more about parents and adults trying to control your life and you trying to show them that you need to suffer in order to learn...thats just how i see it
