Lyrics
I feel them coursing through me
Roadblocks in my veins
My big plans are just amateur actors
Reciting on the stage
And I could try anything
But instead I am pushing
Fear around my plate
Feel like an anchor with no weight

Cause I don’t want to go there
I don’t want to seize the prize
If pride can lose the last word

I would love you with the fearless embrace
Of all I can afford
But I panic, just like a rabbit in headlights
Afraid that I’m a fraud
Yeah you can do anything
But I smell the burning
Before the match is struck
There’s not a flame that I can trust

Cause I don’t want to go there
I don’t want to seize the prize
If pride can lose the last word
Yeah

That apple shouldn’t be picked
That chalice shouldn’t be sipped
That serpent shouldn’t be kissed
I’ve calculated the risk

Well I’m tired of reading the script
To a cautionary tale
Freedom bends at the knee
If we know that we can fail
I don’t want to waste time
I don’t want to loose sight
Of the rising sun
Can’t a girl just have her fun

That apple shouldn’t be picked
That chalice shouldn’t be sipped
That serpent shouldn’t be kissed
I’ve calculated the risk
