If only we could run away,
Escape everything that holds us back,
We might finally be free.

Free from all the grief,
The falsehood,
The restrictions that put us in our place,
The voice inside my head,
That cautions me to be realistic.

I want to be free to reside in your arms,
To feel your love wash over me,
Laying there I feel safe,
Sheltered,
Complete.

If only I could afford be foolish,
Forget my heavy past,
And love unrestrained,
Might I find peace inside.

I crave that freedom,
Freedom you have always known,
Freedom I have yet to experience.

I want to throw caution to wind,
Embrace recklessness whole-heartedly,
And leave all this baggage behind.

Your love speeds me towards liberty.
