I don't know how to tell you,
I don't know what to say,
My heart feels like it's bursting
I can't let the chips fall where they may.
This has gone on far too long,
I can't take it any more
I feel locked up in a cage,
And I don't know what for.
My heart belongs to someone else,
I pray you'll let me go,
You've always done what's best for me,
I wish you'd let me choose what I do.
I don't want to mess this up,
I can't give up this chance,
Between dancing and sitting out,
I wish you'd let me dance!
