Let me fall, let me climb
There’s a moment when fear
And dreams must collide

Someone I am is waiting for courage
The one I want, the one I will become
Will catch me

So let me fall if I must fall
I won’t heed your warnings
I won’t hear them

Let me fall, if I fall
Though the phoenix
May or may not rise

I will dance so freely
Holding on to no one
You can hold me only
If you too will fall
Away from all these
Useless fears and chains

Someone I am is waiting for my courage
The one I want, the one I will become
Will catch me

So let me fall if I must fall
I won’t heed your warnings
I won’t hear

Let me fall, if I fall
There’s no reason
To miss this one chance
This perfect moment
Just let me fall
