guarded lyrics – kevin daniel

i’ve never been the kind to hold back,
though i’ve never felt the burden before,
and all these years i begged for vengeance,
was only left with wanting more,

but i can’t be whole,
’til i let all this anger go,
the silent strain i’ve carried long enough.

and i can’t be with you,
i don’t even want to,
i just wish your ghosts were gone,
cause i’m ready to love,
i’ve been guarded long enough.

it’s taken a lot to forgive you,
oh it’s taken me so long,
i tried in vain to forget you,
oh i tried everything,

but i won’t be free,
’til i’ve made peace with never knowing,
what went wrong and was the fault in me.

and i can’t be with you,
i don’t even want to,
i just wish your ghosts were gone,
cause i’m ready to love,
i’ve been guarded long enough.

i’ve been guarded long enough,
i’ve been guarded long enough,
i’ve been guarded long enough to know,
i’m ready, i’m ready,
i’m ready, i’m ready,
i’m ready, i’m ready,
i’m ready, i’m ready now.
