Puppet Strings

Pull the strings and watch me dance
I'll do everything you say
with strings attached
a wooden toy
which with you play

I'll never cry
with eyes made of wood
I'll always smile
a fake smile of paint
and I'll dance to your rhythm
from your puppet strings

But you've set me free
come to realize
I'm not your puppet
I'm a human being
with feelings and love
and tears to cry

No strings attached
not anymore
I am free to be
myself
once more
