Into the Blue - Kylie Minogue

I paved the road that would one day leave me lonely
No angels too good to fall from grace
If she let go of whatever keeps her holy


But I'm still here holding on too tight, to everything that I left behind
I don't care if this world is mine
Cause this is all I know

When I got my back up against the wall
Don't need no one to rescue me
Cause I quit waiting up for no miracle
Tonight I'm running free
Into The Blue, Into The Blue
With nothing to lose, Into the blue

I'm not ashamed of all my mistakes
Cause through the wind
I still kept the fire burning
These memories that I can't erase
Always remind me I'm on an endless journey

But I'm still here holding on too tight
To everything I left behind
I don't care if this world is mine
Cause this is all I know

When I got my back up against the wall
Don't need no one to rescue me
Cause I quit waiting up for no miracle
Yeah tonight I'm running free
Into the blue, into the blue
With nothing to lose
Into the blue

I'll go where nobody knows
Wherever the wind is blowing
Even if I'm alone

When I got my back up against the wall
Don't need no one to rescue me
Cause I quit waiting up for no miracle
Yeah tonight I'm running free
Into the blue, with nothing to lose
Into the blue
