Set Myself Free

from Awakening Pt. 1 by Cecily



I tiptoe to my hurt place
The soft spot on my soul
My fingertips are gentle
Touching moments turned to coal

Every feeling has a story
A mistake I’ve come to own
I forgive them one by one
I don’t have to be alone

I forgive myself for abandoning him
I forgive myself for falling over drunk
I forgive myself for lying
I forgive myself for deciding to flunk

I have more love than regret
I have more love than regret

I have enough love, enough love, enough love
I have enough love to set myself free (2x)

I walk back in that memory
I can’t recall the sounds
But i can feel your anger
Those words that knocked me down

And I can taste my silence
Being swallowed by your rage
I don’t need to relive this
So I choose to turn the page

I forgive you cause I love you
I forgive you to release you from shame
I forgive you but don’t call me
I forgive you though I know I’m not to blame

I have more love than pain
I have more love than pain


I forgive myself, I forgive myself
I forgive myself, I forgive myself
I forgive, I forgive, I forgive
Cause that’s what I deserve
