You may think you still control me,
You may think that you still own me –
But there’s something you should know.
I was never your possession,
I was only your obsession,
And the more that you suppressed me
the lesser grew your hold.
So stop clawing at my shadow.
Stop trying to keep your choke-hold, and
let me breathe,
And be my own soul,
For it’s time you let me go.
