Story

A haunting piano-based ballad about letting yourself drop your guard, giving yourself permission to lean on others, and allowing people access to your inner world. 

Lyrics

V1: Standing there like Achilles

No one can bring you down

But if you read the stories

You’d know that heroes often fall

 

V2: Maybe if you don’t waver

Nothing can touch your heart

You can be strong and stable

For me to lean upon

 

PreC: But I’m not the one who needs the rescuing

And I’m trying to understand your reasoning

 

C: Why you don’t want me to see 

That you’re fragile

Yeah, you’re fragile

No, you don’t want me to see

That you’re fragile

Yeah, you’re fragile

Just like me

 

V3: I can see through the armor

I can see through the stone

Why must you be a martyr

When you don’t have to stand alone

 

V4: Just like a Don Quixote

Chasing what isn’t real

Hiding beneath the layers

Of the feelings you won’t feel

 

PreC: But your eyes betray the heart that beats in you

There is no more need to fight, nothing to prove

 

Chorus

 

B: You can hold your head up high and try to make it on your own

And continue with facades upon your face

You can hold your world inside, intent on standing all alone

But loneliness and pride don’t make you brave

You can let go

You need to let go

You don’t have to be strong

All the time

 

You can let go

You have to let go

You don’t need to be strong

All the time

 

Chorus
