Letting go of frozen

I’m frozen here in this scary place
I feel my heart as it begins to race

My feet are encased in blocks of ice
They keep me planted to an array of ties

What do you want me to say
your pain is more than I can take

I try to fly, I try to soar
I thought you saw me fly out the door

But the cold comes on and freezes my wings
It stabs my chest so I can no longer sing

I am trying to help, I am trying to show
I was honest with you, You must know

If I say the words, will you hear them
If I scream them at you, will you defend

I love you, I do, I am sorry you’re in pain
I would take it all back, if I saw any change

I would melt the ice I freeze in
I would run to be in your arms again

But the girl you knew, the bird you adored
She doesn’t live in this body any more

She disappeared so long ago
She tried to let you know

We were blind, stupid even and now I see no hope
We could have tried to fix it, but we let go of the rope

The tie that bound us, tethering us together
It split to shreds like one of my feathers

I was so sad before, so empty
now I don’t know whats in store for me

I am more scared now than I have ever been
I could stay frozen with you and let this all end

But, my heart would not be there
It would not be fair

I love you, you are wonderful
But, I’m not in love with you any more

I tried to give my heart back to you, for so long it wasn’t even mine
Now that I have it back to me I want to keep it in a shrine

I don’t want to share it, I don’t want to be frozen
I need to let go of the life I have chosen

I’m sorry beautiful man, you don’t deserve this
I wish that when I go you find your bless

I can’t say this enough, I can’t get any clearer
I love you but my heart flew into the future
