Freedom Is Worth All That
I see you looking at me
I saw it
That fleeting look of pride that a woman would never admit
Yes I saw it
Why don’t you let me break your heart now
Let me break it before me meet
Before I disappoint you
Let me break it now so you know you can live with it
Because then you can be free
To believe in today
Are you thinking about our graves?
About lying next to each other
Like those who were buried two hundred years ago?
Are you thinking of a romance
To be the old couple that make young people smile?
But why put all that on me?
We haven’t even spoken
And you have us dying in each other’s arms
Let me make you smile
Let me get you through one day of happiness
Not because we are to be married
But because you met someone
Someone unlike anyone you’ve ever met before
Let me help you be who you are
Because I will be who I am
And you will see the kind of courage that you cannot imagine
The kind that would risk losing a woman as beautiful as you
The kind that would risk another night alone
Is worth all that
