Who's that talking? I heard someone speak to me It came from within, a voice that's crying to be free But I'm a puppet and that is all My life's the strings and that's all.. Free me! I want to live my life as it was planned I want to take my Father's hand And I want to know forgiveness I want to start again Oh take away these strings And set me free How can this be, tell me what is happening 'Cause I'm just a puppet, I tied myself into these strings That weave their silk around my life And lead me on, and that is all.. Free me! I want to live my life as it was planned I want to take my Father's hand And I want to know forgiveness I want to start again Oh take away these strings And set me free But if I cut my strings surely I'll only fall down What manner of joke's this, a puppet changed into a clown? Don't jest with me I know my place and here I'll stay To strings I'm tied therefore a puppet I must be I'll only move when my strings pull that part of me And that is all... Free me! I want to live my life
as it was planned I want to take my Father's hand Step into the promised land I want to learn to dance, yes I do Happy ever after is the way I'm going to be When I let your love come into me The masks of grief and laughter you'll take away from me And from these strings you'll forever Free me! I want to live my life as it was planned I want to take my Father's hand And I want to know forgiveness I want to start again Oh take away these strings Free me, I want to live my as it was planned And so that I can stand I want to
