Let me fall

Let me fall , Let me climb
There's a moment when fear
And dreams must collide

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


So let me fall
If I must fall I won't heed your warnings
I won't hear them

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

Someone I am
Is waiting for my courage
The one I want
The one I will become
Will catch me

So let me fall
If I must fall
I won't heed your warnings
I won't hear

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

* I think that this song is talking about the future and the fears that everybody have. We have to learn to fall for then will be more strong and see things from a different points of view
* I associate this to our future. Our new phase is coming
*Maybe Andrea Bochelli? :|
* About the life
