****************************************************************

I ain't too young to know
That life has its highs and lows
And things won't always turn out
Quite like how I think
And though I have much to learn
To weather the twists and turns
I know that I'm capable
To deal with what life brings me

I'm strong, I'm ready to be on my own
Let me spread my wings, let me go
Don't hold so tight
Cause I can fly alone

I need you to trust me
Have faith and let me make it on my own
Please let me, your baby, go

You've given me courage to be a person of dignity
You've been my example
I've been blessed to have you

But your faith is strong (But I know you can see in me -
I can't stand alone. I can't stand on my own two feet)
Don't be afraid to send me (don't you be afraid to send me safely)
I need you to believe in me

I'm strong I'm ready to be on my own
Let me spread my wings, let me go
Don't hold so tight
Cause I can fly alone

I need you to trust me
Have faith and let me make it on my own
Please let me, your baby, go

You gave me
Everything
Now I won't look back

And I know that I will always have you
To lean on when i need to

Let me spread my wings let me go
Don't hold on so tight
Cause you know that I can fly alone

I need you to trust me
Have faith and let me make it on my own
Please let me, your baby, go

Please let me, your baby, go
