Choose to Be

Words & Music by Allison Crowe

I wasn't expecting you
you took me by surprise
and I don't know if you can see it
but it's right behind my eyes

an answer to a question
that I didn't know I'd asked
and you know
I didn't believe the tides
could wash over me so fast

'cause I've
never seen this before
and I've seen so much
oh God I wonder what it takes
to understand happiness

but I am
standing on the edge
I am not afraid to fall
I am not hiding
I'm not dying
I'm not anything at all

But this time
I choose to be
happy

And I've never really thought that I
could have something good
I never realized I deserved anything
didn't think that I could

but now I'm breaking down these walls
and I'm tearing at these chains
and I am starting to believe
that I must be insane

cause I've never
seen you before
and I've seen so much
oh God I wonder what it takes
to understand
happiness

But I am
I'm standing on the edge
and I am not afraid to fall

And I am not hiding
I'm not dying
I am not anything at all
but falling

and I don't care where I land
falling
I'm falling

and now I feel I can stand

but this time
I choose to be
happy
