Free To Be Me

Album: My Paper Heart (2009)
  • At twenty years of age
    I'm still looking for a dream
    A war's already waged for my destiny
    But You've already won the battle
    And You've got great plans for me
    Though I can't always see

    'Cause I got a couple dents in my fender
    Got a couple rips in my jeans
    Try to fit the pieces together
    But perfection is my enemy
    And on my own I'm so clumsy
    But on Your shoulders I can see
    I'm free to be me

    When I was just a girl
    I thought I had it figured out
    See my life would turn out right
    And I'd make it here somehow
    But things don't always come that easy
    And sometimes I would doubt, oh

    'Cause I got a couple dents in my fender
    Got a couple rips in my jeans
    Try to fit the pieces together
    But perfection is my enemy
    And on my own I'm so clumsy
    But on Your shoulders I can see
    I'm free to be me and You're free to be You

    Sometimes I believe that I can do anything
    Yet other times I think
    I've got nothing good to bring
    But You look at my heart and You tell me
    That I've got all You seek, oh
    And it's easy to believe even though

    I got a couple dents in my fender
    Got a couple rips in my jeans
    Try to fit the pieces together
    But perfection is my enemy
    And on my own I'm so clumsy
    But on Your shoulders I can see

    I got a couple dents in my fender
    Got a couple rips in my jeans
    Try to fit the pieces together
    But perfection is my enemy
    And on my own I'm so clumsy
    But on Your shoulders I can see
    I'm free to be me and You're free to be You Writer/s: FRANCESCA BATTISTELLI
