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!
