For too long now, there were secrets in my mind
For too long now, there were things I should have said
In the darkness I was stumbling for the door
To find a reason, to find the time, the place, the hour

Waiting for the winter sun, and the cold light of day
The misty ghosts of childhood fears
The pressure is building, and I can't stay away

I throw myself into the sea
Release the wave, let it wash over me
To face the fear I once believed
The tears of the dragon, for you and for me

Where I was, I had wings that couldn't fly
Where I was, I had tears I couldn't cry
My emotions frozen in an icy lake
I couldn't feel them until the ice began to break

I have no power over this, you know I'm afraid
The walls I built are crumbling
The water is moving, I'm slipping away

I throw myself into the sea
Release the wave, let it wash over me
To face the fear I once believed
The tears of the dragon, for you and for me

Slowly I awake, slowly I rise
The walls I built are crumbling
The water is moving, I'm slipping away

I throw (I throw) myself (myself) into the sea
Release the wave, let it wash over me
To face (to face) the fear (the fear) I once believed
The tears of the dragon, for you and for me

I throw (I throw) myself (myself) into the sea
Release the wave, let it wash over me
To face (to face) the fear (the fear) I once believed
The tears of the dragon, for you and for me

    General CommentI first heard it in the summer camp.A best friend of mine sent it to my mobile and now when i hear it i remember him.It is also my lucky song,because it was playing when i bumped into my amore out in the streets in a windy Saturday.Good.
