Letting go is sometimes the cure

When the rope tightens and scars your wrist

Unwind the interlace of the tarnished braids

 

Sometimes holding back is poison

Like setting your bare hands in metal cuffs

Your heart gets caught up in a grey cell

 

Slow but steady, I'm surfacing 

Forgetting the bittersweet nights 

Finally letting you go

 

The dormant volcano of the past

Comes with pride back to life

To prove that a new era is yet to begin

 

That's how I abruptly fell

Into a new beginning 

That started from the past end

 

Dear old dreamer, 

Thank you for throwing your spell
