Let me fall
Let me ___________

There's a ___________ when fear
And ___________ must collide

Someone I am
Is waiting for ___________
The one I want
The one I will become
Will ___________ me

So let me fall

If I must fall
I won't heed your ___________
I won't ___________ them

Let me fall

If I fall
Though the phoenix may
Or may not ___________
I will ___________ so freely
Holding on to no one
You can hold me only
If you too will ___________
Away from all these
Useless fears and chains

Someone I am

Is waiting for my ___________
The one

I won't heed your ___________

Let me fall

If I fall
There's no reason
To miss this one ___________
This perfect moment
Just let me fall
