I've woken up
(burn the bridges)
I’ve woken up. I’ve got a plan.
I told my friends. I told the Man.
The only one I haven’t told is you.
I’m kinda thrilled. I’m kinda scared.
I never thought – I never dared –
believe that one day this might all come true.
So, grab your bag, go pack your things
and I’ll make room for what you bring:
the future’s waiting just beyond our sight.
Today’s the day we stick or twist.
The car’s out back, we won’t be missed.
I need to know if you can dare to fly.
You can help me burn the bridges
when we’re on the other side.
We could strike a blow for liberty.
Heading for that new horizon,
No one there to hold us back:
You’ll see, I promise this, you’ll see.
We’ve talked of nothing else since we were kids
To quit this sleepy town
To find a whole new life.
Was everything we told ourselves a lie
or can we fly, can we fly?
You can help me burn the bridges ...
(repeat to fade)
