Unrestricted, You Are

Do you ever stop and wonder where you’re going?

Or how long you’ve travelled on without knowing?

Do you ever wish someone would hold your hand?

Explain the things you’ll never understand?


It only takes a moment to get a little lost,

It only takes a moment to think about the cost

Of all the intellectual ideas you flushed down the drain

Just so you wouldn’t have to deal with the oncoming pain

Of not knowing whether you were right or wrong,

But can’t you see you’ve been right all along?


What they never teach you in school is how to make mistakes,

They tell you when you’re incorrect, that you don’t got what it takes,

But this is your life and you should live it how you want,

Live freely, live proud, comme jamais auparavant.


I think you’re brilliant, fluorescent in the night,

More than just capable of reaching a new height,

You’re bursting with integrity, just got to let it shine,

I think that when you love yourself, you’re going to do just fine.


Come on, you’re spectacular, what more do you need?

Even when you fail, your success is guaranteed.

La vie est courte, mais toujours vraiment beau,

You’ve spent your whole life waiting,

Baby, it’s time to go.
