Malambo ska

When I was young I tried to be
The things you wanted me to be
I kept my thoughts inside my head
And never once I tried to change
The things you said I could become
Were buried deep inside my heart
Sometimes I feel like I´ve failed
But it was not your choice to make
(No matter how bad you wanted)

Now it feels like yesterday
When you were holding my hand
I tried to be part of your world
But now I know I never was
Sometimes to fall down on your knees
Helps to remind you that you´re free
And through the darkness of my days
Your light has guided me this way

It took me time, but now I know
The fears I had were not my own
I hope someday you´ll find the way
To realize I never meant
To make you feel you didn´t know
The person that I had become
It might be hard for you to see
But there was no choice left for me
(Can´t be a puppet on a string)

Now it feels like yesterday
When you were holding my hand
I tried to be part of your world
But now I know I never was
Sometimes to fall down on your knees
Helps to remind you that you´re free
And through the darkness of my days
Your light has guided me this way
