lyrics

I wish these chains were broken
Wish the past would stay the past
Life’s become unbearable 
I am done with this old ghost,
but it won’t leave me alone
Please set me free, at last! 

Past mistakes haunt me, guilt follows me around
And thoughts of the “old me” seem so relevant today
But did I not grow? Am I still the same?
Cannot seem to outrun my past, it never goes away
It feels like I’m surrounded by something I can’t see
It’s like some kind of entity is still tormenting me
Sometimes it paralyzes or takes my breath away 
At times it even dictates what I do or what I say

To let go of the past
While it won’t let me go

I wish these chains were broken
Wish the past would stay the past
Life has become unbearable 
I am done with this old ghost,
but it won’t leave me alone
Please set me free, at last!

Years-of-weight- rest on my shoulders, experiences long gone by
Keep adding up, slowing me down more and more each day
What will happen when one day this burden gets to big
Will I be buried underneath when it crushes me complete
Helpless as a victim of the spirits from the past
Will-they-feast-upon what’s left of me and welcome me as their own
Then I will be the haunting ghost in someone else’s life
And make their life a living hell from then until forever

To let go of the past
While it won’t let me go

Can I set myself free?
Is there any hope for me?
Want to believe there comes a time
when my mourning is turned to joy 

So I will stand up straight
Confront this demon that’s been with me for so long 
Remind him who I am 
You have no authority over me!!!

I give you up, my old ghost. You’re not welcome anymore.
I'm not you anymore. So just die! Why won't you go towards the light?
Why won't you leave me alone? You bring nothing but pain, regret and shame.
It's time to go and finally leave me alone!
