lyrics

For so many years I've suffered and had to hide
I've endured this battle for my whole life
A battered heart a beaten spirit, and a weathered mind
I hope this makes me stronger somewhere along the line

Where are you going?
I'm no finished with you just yet
And until your defeat there will be no rest

I've been locked inside of this empty cell
Surrounded by false prophets who liked to tell
That it's all a loss and a fucking mistake
How could you ever think of winning
When you don't deserve to play?

Where are you going?
Reverberating inside my head
But they won't know what is coming next

I'll cry freedom
This is my moment of clarity
Those chains were so tight
But this is my new high
I'm ready to seize the day

Now I'm walking in my own two shoes and they're
Not those ill-fitting garments that I've had to wear
Because I was too young to work out why
I've not felt like my old self for such a long time

I've got a spritely spring in my step today
'Cause I've decided to throw regrets away
It was liberating but no easy feat
It could be quite cutting
But still I didn't bleed

Where are you going?
Don't you dare lead me astray
I've finally broken you from my shape

I'll cry freedom
This is my moment of clarity
Those chains were so tight
But this is my new high
I'm ready to seize the day

So join me in the driving rain
We'll dance and sing our pains away
Feel the strain release and start to fade

Welcome a new decade
Welcome a new decade

Welcome a new decade
Welcome a new decade

Your decade won't wait as long as mine
'Cause ten years can start from anytime
You can try again, it's always fine
I'll meet you at your start or finish line
