They wanted to break my back, wanted to hold me back from being free.
They had a part for me in society, but that wasn't me.
They gave me an early start, when they broke my heart I needed to see.
That if I wanted to be myself I couldn't be myself without me!

So here I am!
I stepped out!
To be free!

'Cause with all that's left inside of me, with my back against the wall.
I can still decide what's best for me, I can still say all I want.
"now that I'm free!"

I needed to learn the truth, I had to find my own destiny.
Everybody would pass me by, I couldn't pacify the urge in me!
Cause I was given wings to fly, that I was meant to try can't you see.
That if I wanted to be myself I couldn't be myself without me!

So here I am!
I stepped out!
To be free!

'Cause with all that's left inside of me, with my back against the wall.
I can still decide what's best for me, I can still stay in control.
Now that I'm free!

You didn't think that I would try
You never knew what's on my mind
You didn't think I'd really try to be more than this!?
I had to live in agony
I knew you're looking down on me
But I always knew that I would be so much more than this!

'Cause with all that's left inside of me, with my back against the wall.
I can still decide what's best for me, I can still say all I want!
"Now that I'm free!"
