i used to be so free
i didn’t even notice if anyone noticed me
i felt the urge in my feet and so i ran
saw someone in need and reached out my hand

but schooling has made me practical
and all the hurt has made me skeptical
and now all i want is to let it go
let it show, let it show, let it show

oh and i’d give you half the sky
if i thought that there was one last star
that had not been wished upon one hundred times
and all that i have to give you
is me, myself, and i
and oh i’ll try

the waters lapping i keep them at bay as if to say
who the hell am i to feel this way
thinking you wouldn’t understand my side
but i haven’t even tried, haven’t tried

oh and i’d give you half the sky
if i thought that there was one last star
that had not been wished upon one thousand times
and all that i have to give you
is me, myself, and i
and oh i’ll try

if wishes were horses, well, i’ve been riding all of my life
but i haven’t gotten much of anywhere, just gone
around, and around, and around
with all the words unspoken, and all the rules unbroken
well this carousel has lost its attraction

i lay my offering at stake
on the table for you to take
my guard’s not down she’s just standing at ease
on her knees, on her knees, on her knees

oh and i’d give you half the sky
if i thought that there was one last star
that had not been wished upon one million times
and all that i have to give you
is me, myself, and i
and oh i’ll try
i’ll try, oh i’ll try
oh i’ll try…
