I had lived so long in shadows of the perfect castle wall
In the arms of its protection never questioning at all
But the leaves started falling from that old illusion tree
I could see the rooms were empty and that it was time for me...to

     Let the castle fall, walk across that bridge
     The first step wasn't easy, but then it never is
     I could see a new horizon and the writing on the wall
     And I could tell that it was time to let the castle fall

I would get so tired and lonely that my heart and bones would ache
Just looking for a sign to tell me which road I should take
With only faith to guide me through the changes time would bring
I began to understand the most important thing was to

(repeat chorus)

(bridge)
I have built myself a new home closer to the ground
The strength to lay the stone came from the courage that I found to

     Let the castle fall, walk across that bridge
     The first step wasn't easy, but then it never is
     I could see a new horizon and the writing on the wall
     And I could tell that it was time to let the castle fall

Somehow you know when it's time to let the castle fall
