Growing Out

I'm writing to thank you from the bottom of my heart

Thank you for the kiss goodnight before I sleep
Thank you for believing that I could leap
Thank you for being there
Thank you for your endless care
Thank you for promises that you tried to keep

I'm writing to say I'm sorry

Sorry for the tears I can no longer hold
Sorry for the words that seem to come out cold
Sorry for the lies
Sorry for the cries
Sorry for the stories that will now unfold

I tried to walk along the line you drew
I tried not to fall into your crossed out views
I tried to change me
but I fell on my knees
Now what's left of me is trying to be true

So I chose to be free
I chose to hold on to me
If one day I wake up and realize my slip-ups
I hope when it comes I will be ready
