And Let My Flame Burn

I wanna feel beautiful

I wanna feel magical

I wanna feel wanted in this world

I wanna feel special

 I wanna feel smart

And creative too

But I allow them to stop me 

And pour water on my flame each time.

And I shouldn’t care

But I do.

And it shouldn’t matter

But it does.

I wanna be an inspiration 

I wanna be a leader

I wanna be an open book for all to read

I wanna be successful

I wanna be confident

And funny too

But I allow them to stop me

And pour water on my flame each time.

And I shouldn’t care

But I do.

And it shouldn’t matter

But it does.

I wanna seem interesting

I wanna seem fun

I wanna seem like someone to hang around with 

I wanna seem genuine

I wanna seem adventurous 

And lovely too

But I allow them to stop me 

And pour water on my flame each time.

And I shouldn’t care

But I do.

And it shouldn’t matter

But it does. 

I want a love like Hazel and Augustus

I want a love like Harry and Sally

I want a love like Noah and Allie

I want a love like Rhiannon and A

I want a love like Will and Veronica

I want a love like Antony and Cleopatra too

If I could just get there 

And not worry for a single moment

And let my flame burn

I’d light a candle everywhere I’ve been,

And everywhere I’ll go

 So they can prepare for me.
