Verse 1

I won't let my mistakes define me.

I won't let my twisted past bind me.

I'm in a boxer's hold of the choices I've made.

All the consequences, oh, won't they ever fade?

Burn down whatever is left of me

So the girl who has learnt can break free

Chorus

From the cocoon that's been crushing her wings

Before her poor soul could even fly.

Burn it down, burn every old jarred thing,

I won't let another day pass me by.

Verse 2

I won't let my mistakes define me.

I won't let my twisted past bind me.

I took responsibility, can't take the pain.

Tell me, please, when will I be free to feel again?

Break down the walls closing in on me.

And the girl who has learnt will break free

Chorus

From the cocoon that's been crushing her wings

Before her poor soul could even fly.

Break it down, break every old jarred thing,

I won't let another day pass me by.

Bridge

I won't waste another minute

Letting myself be seduced by promises of true love,

Ignoring the dangers in it.

Look at me, my heart's bleeding through my eyes, I've had enough.

No more fractured fairytales.

Now it's time to untangle

Chorus

From the cocoon that's been crushing my wings

Before my poor soul could even fly.

Burn it down, burn every old jarred thing,

I won't let another day pass me by.

Outro

I won't let my mistakes define me.

I won't let my twisted past bind me.

I won't let my mistakes define me.

I won't let my twisted past bind me.

I won't let my mistakes define me.

I won't let my twisted past bind me.
