Better to Know

lyrics

The thoughts that lingered in my mind
I had to change to words
I wished they’d stayed inside of me but
now they fly like birds
They run away and make you see
They make you realize
That even I get scared sometimes
and tears can fill my eyes

Maybe you’ve hoped that I was strong
and I could never break
But there are some things in this life
that even I can’t take
But there’s no need for you to try
to make everything right
I’ve lost my will, my courage and strength and
I’m giving up this fight

For you shall hear these worries no more
I’ll shut the window and lock the door
I’ll put a chain and break the key
And you will never set me free
I chose this cage over freedom any day
It’s much more honest to see it this way
It’s better to know that you’re not free
than pretend you’ re something that you cannot be
And you shall hear these worries no more
I’ll shut the window and lock the door
I’ll put a chain and break the key
And you will never set me free
I’d choose this cage over freedom any day
It’s much more honest to see it this way
It’s better to know that you’re not free
than to pretend that you are something you cannot be
