Lyrics

I Was Free

You were lonely, and I was free
The time had come now, but it left right after me
And, in a lifetime, I will never know
How you can need me, but always let me go

Chorus
And there was nothing that I could say
To turn the nighttime into the day
And we were breathing with all our hearts
But, in the morning, we’d break apart

We had our moments, they tended to be blurred,
I’d sing to soothe you, even if you’d never heard
But now you’re careful, whenever I’m around,
And I keep my voice down, ‘cos you’re not worth the sound

Chorus
And there was nothing that I could say
To turn the nighttime into the day
And we were breathing with all our hearts
But, in the morning, we’d play our parts

I heard a whisper, it said that you’d returned,
I couldn’t help it, my body burned,
If only this time, our souls would unite,
We’d travel onwards for years of light

Chorus
But, there is nothing that I can do,
To make you realise you want it too,
‘Cos, in the darkness, we’d sing our songs,
But then that morning, I knew that you’d be gone
