lyrics

Standing on a cliff, the raging sea below
I will always love you but I have to go
Freedom pulls me up into the open sky
I could take you with me if you only dared to fly

CHORUS: I hope that you'll try
To find a bridge between the land and sky
Ask yourself why
"Understand me" is my battle cry!

Daughter of the tempest I was never tame
I chose to come and listen when you called my name
If you’re truly wise then you can learn to see
But strangers to the storm will never recapture me

CHORUS: I looked deep inside
And saw the secrets you'd prefer to hide
Ask yourself why
"Understand me" is my battle cry

So come on, hold tight
There's stormy skies and I'm taking flight
If you don't hold fast
It's a long way down
And I'm never gonna put my feet
Back on the ground

Playing dodge the lightning while the thunder roars
It's primal, wild and frightening and can't be ignored
Praying that my wings survive the hail and rain
With the damage that was done to them
While they were bound and chained

CHORUS: I hate these goodbyes
Even though there is no question why
I look in your eyes
"Understand me" is my battle cry

So come on, hold tight
There's stormy skies and I'm taking flight
If you don't hold fast
It's a long way down
And I'm never gonna put my feet
Back on the ground

So come on, hold tight
There's stormy skies and I'm taking flight
If you don't hold fast
It's a long way down
And I'm never gonna put my feet
Back on the
Never gonna put my feet
Back on the
Never gonna put my feet
Back on the ground!
