Freed From My Tower

 Isn't it funny

That the princess in the tower

Isn't a princess

And isn't a flower

 

Her heart hurts badly

Her mind is in pain

She can't conform

She isn't the same

 

No one is there to hold her

They think she's too strong

But she's been lying

She's been hurting all alone

 

I am not your princess

I am not in a tower

I am not your rose

I am not your flower

 

I'll fight to show

That I am free

Free to mess up

Free to be me

 

Don't place people

In some tower

They will never be that girl

I will never be your flower
