No Longer

Album: Every Mile Mattered (2017)
  • This my red sea
    And my Jericho
    This is my Philistine
    And my five stones

    But talk is cheap
    So is bargaining
    So, here I go

    I don't want to live
    Like I'm half alive
    I don't want to walk
    Where the road is wide

    All this fear that I've
    Been tryin' to hide
    Is going to start to show

    This is how it's been
    Always hesitant

    I want to my feel my heart on fire now
    And let the safety net burn down
    Throw my arms out wide
    Let your love collide in me
    I want to run with my heart on my shirt
    Straight into the wind, maybe get hurt
    I thought living safe meant living stronger
    No longer

    There's a set of keys
    And a heavy door
    They can set you free
    Or lock you in some more
    If you sing your song
    I will sing along
    Let the walls come down

    So let's go find the stars
    Let's remember who we are

    Afraid, no longer
    Ashamed, no longer
    A slave, no longer
    No longer, no longer
    I'm stronger, I'm stronger
