Trails out of Gloom

Won’t you release me
Won’t you release me

I know my way is overgrown now
But I’m willing to crawl through the leaves
I slept so long the winter’s over
And the journey that I have kept holed up inside
I’m ready to make, if you will let me go

Won’t you release me
Won’t you release me

I’ve got my songs, oh the work of ages
There’ll be treasures along the way
And I’ve got your love like a guardian angel
And I’ve been dreaming the light, a burning inside
There’s a dragon to slay if you will let me go

Won’t you release me
Won’t you release me

I know my way could end in sorrow
But if I stay here, what awaits is disease
We’ve lived so long in this tiny shelter
And the beauty that I had thought crawled off to die
Is beginning to wake, and it comes with an ache
So will you give me the right to leave here tonight
I’m forever your slave if you will let me go
