I ran through the fields in the bright moonlight
I saw the stars shining spreading out their light
I heard the wind whisper that I was free
I felt the unexplored world beckoning me
And I felt love and I felt fear
Fear of all I was that I could be right here
And I ran because I am the light
I ran because it felt right.
I galloped on a horse across the plain
I felt excitement and I felt pain
I wanted to fly but I felt love
Love that would have dragged me through a life of drudge.
I had stopped and I had stayed
My blood had ebbed slower
My life been waylaid
I loved him, yes, but he was wrong
He felt no love -he was too 'strong'
He was afraid and he wouldn't dare
He wouldn't dare love what may not stay there.
So I galloped away in the fierce moonlight
I wanted to be free -to show my light
I galloped, galloped and galloped some more
I would never be what I was before.
I swam with the oceans and I flew with the wind
I danced with the fires -the fires within
I laughed with the earth -for she was in me
She told me her secrets -she let me be free
And I could not discover why he followed me
Why he would not ever let me be free
So I stopped again and I stayed a while
And he became hard and he became vile
And I swam with the oceans but my heart was charred
I tried to laugh but my throat was barred
It only let me sob, it only let me cry
I tried to understand, to understand why
But I couldn't and nor can I still
I want to fly away from his world of ill will
But my heart cries out that I must stay
And my heart cries out that there must be a way
A way to leave, a way to be free,
A way to stay, a way he'll love me
But I know the only way is to be
Far, far away from him monitoring me
So I fly away into the light
I fly away and it feels so right
I want to be free and I am free
I am the light and the light is me
My soul is light and my eyes are bright
My heart no longer has to endure the fight
To fight itself, to fight for love
I'd even tried to send a dove!
At my old lagoon she no longer cries for me
The weeping willow that wanted me to be free
Now she and the wind dance and dance some more
The ripples smile for me -the ones she does draw
The fireflies glow and the gazelles leap
I realize now all that I can reap
The sun warms me for we are one
He may love me soon now that I am gone
My heart is excited and my blood flows fast
All my cells tingle --alive at last!
I am alive -yes, yes, I am alive!
I am no longer waiting for him to arrive
I'm dancing now upon the clouds
I'm shining now with the stars
The world is full of magic -yes it is all around
I am alive -no longer bound!
Free, free, free -I am free, free, free
Freer that the winds racing across the sea!
Even if he looks for me
He'll never find the one that I used to be.
