Run, I set you free; run to him if you believe

You can free his heart; fly together, never part

Challenge the fates; cross their threads, twist and break

Fly ever higher; remake the world with sacred fire

 

I stand in awe

I stand in awe of your power

You've broken free of me forever

 

Locked so deep inside; wrapped in chains forged by my pride

You have struggled long to break those bonds and prove me wrong

Star, burst from my chest; fight for freedom; rend my flesh

Golden bird of light, phoenix rises and takes flight

 

I stand in awe

I stand in awe of your power

You've broken free of me forever

So fly

 

You have brought me down, thunderstruck, fall from my tower

Fallen to the ground, running naked, beast unbound

No more silken veils, only linen for your sails

Fly, forever free, sail beside him; cross the sea

 

I stand in awe

I stand in awe of your power

You've broken free of me forever

So fly, fly, fly
