Do I dare even where what I was thinking of?
My true colors bleeding on my sleeve
Do I chance the romance that I've been dreaming of
Instead of wishing for it quietly

And always at a distance
I wish you'd safely stayed
Despite my resistance
You sought me anyway

Gone are the days of all that I was afraid of
I've left behind the traces of who I've been
I'm no longer able to wrestle with this angel
And the closer you get, I can let you love me

I had found it was easier to dance around
The edges of who I could be
And if I chose to expose what grows deep down
Would you still desire what you see?

No more self-rejection
No longer paralyzed
This holy perfection
Is me inside your eyes

Gone are the days of all that I was afraid of
I've left behind the traces of who I've been
I'm no longer able to wrestle with this angel
And the closer you get, I can let you love me, you love me

Nevermind this mirror hanging on the wall
'Cause I could not pretend to be the fairest of them all
And took a hammer to the glass
To shatter all the pieces, the pieces of my past

Gone are the days of all that I was afraid of
I've left behind the traces of who I've been
I'm no longer able to wrestle with this angel
And the closer you get, I can let you love me

Gone are the days of all that I was afraid of
I've left behind the traces of who I've been
I'm no longer able to wrestle with this angel
And the closer you get, I can let you love me

Gone are the days of all that I was afraid of
I've left behind the traces of who I've been
I'm no longer able to wrestle with this angel
And the closer you get, I can let you love me
