Leaving

So many things I still don't understand
So many days I find it hard to stand
How much longer will my bones keep aching?
How much longer till I stop shaking?

So many footprints here and I'm making more
So many have passed this way before
One of these days I'll wear a hole in the floor
If can't find way to get myself out the door

The wind keeps blowing the trees
Against my window pane
The storm inside my soul
Keeps me in so much pain
When will the bell ring to release me?
When will I realize that I am free to leave?

So many things I have yet to figure out
So many days all I want to do is shout
How much longer will I be held in silence?
How much longer till I let go
The breath I've been holding in?
I won't let the silence win

The wind keeps blowing the trees
Against my window pane
The storm inside my heart
Keeps me full of pain
When will the bell toll and release me?
Will I realize that I was free to leave?

When will I rise up and take back what's mine?
There is no reason to wait till the end of time
No longer will I wait in silence
I'm breaking out of here
No one can hold me in

The wind can blow the trees
Against my window pane
But the storm inside my soul
Won't hold me captive again
I know there is no bell to release me
I know now I was always free to leave

I won't let the silence win
I'm leaving and I swear
Never again
