Dear mother,

So many things you want me to say,

ďIíll never leave you, ill be your doll

And let you catch me when I fall

But there is one thing ill let you know

Its not the way things go.

Let go of my hand, was my first word,

And counts today as much as then

Too many breaking hearts and lies I heard

And now its time to go, this is the end.

So goodbye mother, I wish you pleasant dreams,

Dream of happy times, of merry things

Dream of the life you want, yet never have

Dream of your perfect daughter and perfect dad.

As much as your money pleases me,

Its not who I am, what I want to be

My heart follows a path you canít perceive.

So many things youíll never know

Its just the way things go.

So if that plane could leave today

Take me a million miles away

I swear id run as fast as I can,

And never turn to look back again.

I hope one day when my race is run

And that sun starts to set on me

Ill still be young, ill still run free

I wont regret a single word

Never look back upon your world

Goodbye my mother

This is the end

And if you try to keep me, ill let you know

Its not the way things go.

use the upper case with I'll and it will work better. " My heart follows a path you canít perceive." Don't like that line at all. Maybe a stanza showing how the person being talked to doesn't understand would help.
