Time after time we
Walk past the window
And never see the ashes on the ground

Night after night
Watching the sky move
Never feel the earth spinning 'round

I didn't see you fallin'
I couldn't hear you callin'
Born with eyes wide open, never learn to see

I never meant to hurt you
Was right there crying with you
Why do we harm the only thing we want to be?

Trying to follow
Every footstep
I feel so lost along the way

Reading the scripture
Straight from the gospel
Never understanding what they say

Yeah, I didn't see you fallin'
I never heard you' callin'
I've got my eyes wide open
But haven't learned to see, yeah

I never meant to hurt you
Was right there crying with you
Why do we harm the only thing we want to be

I just gotta be
Me
I just gotta be
Me, yeah

I didn't see you fallin'
I never heard you callin'
I've got my eyes wide open but never learned to see, yeah

I never meant to hurt you
Was right there crying with you
We only cage the very thing we want to free

I just wanna be
I just wanna be
Gotta, gotta be, uh
I just wanna be
I gotta be, I wanna be
Gotta, gotta
Gotta, gotta be me
Just wanna be
I wanna be, ow
Yeah, ow, yeah
