Lyrics The Life I Never Led

I've never talked back
I've never slept late
I've never sat down when told to stand straight
I've never let go and gone with the flow and don't even know really why
I've never asked questions or taken a dare
I've never worn clothes that might make people stare
I've never rebelled or stood up and yelled or even just held my head high
And all of the feelings unspoken all of the truths unsaid
They're all I have left of the life I never led
I've never gone surfing or ran with a crowd
Or danced on a table or laughed much too loud
I've never quite dared to leave myself bared
I've just been too scared I might fall
I've never seen Paris swum naked been kissed
I've never quite realised just how much I've missed
And what did I get for hedging each bet another regret and that's all
And all of the wishes unasked for all of the needs unfed
They're all that remain of the life I never led
And now now that you've given me one little taste of it
And now now that I know what I know
Well how how can I go on ignoring the waste of it
After all of the years that I've clung to my fears
Won't you help me let go help me let go
I want to be brave
I want to be strong
I want to believe
I'm where I belong
To stand up and say
I'm seizing the day to not just obey but to choose
And I may not surf
I may not see France
But I want to know
I still have the chance
And maybe I'll make a painful mistake
It's mine though to take or refuse
And all of the doors yet to open all of the rooms ahead
They're beaconing bright scary and new
But I'm standing tall and I'm walking through
What's gone may be gone but I won't go on playing dead
It's time to start living the life I never led
