Part 1

You would always tell me 
we don't have much in common
Yet I think art is our biggest similarity
Our creative minds are amazing separate
It would almost be dangerous what we could do together

I've definitely gone off course 
and need to find myself again
I know exactly how to do it now too
I don't have to run from my feelings
I don't have to lie to myself
which would make me lie to others
I would convince myself things weren't real
and I was pretty good at that too
I know what I need 
and I'm not running anymore
I know when I'm back to who I am
how much I have to fight to keep it this way

I'm constantly being tested 
whether to talk to this one or that
but I know I have to follow direction
People I never would think
that just shows me how real this is

There's so much in my mine that I want to do
and can't figure out just how to do it
I don't even know how to put in words what I envision
Someday that switch will go on
I just hope I catch it in time

I know how to love
my soul was just deteriorating
but I'm given a new chance
the ransom was paid
and I know even more now what that means

I hope in the end you respect my decisions
and don't continue to fight me on them
I feel like a Princess already
