Song Lyrics - Be Free But Be With Me

Updated on August 20, 2011
Source

I gave you freedom today
And it made you confused
You thought I gave you up
But it’s your heart that won’t be accused

You don’t understand
Why I would say this to you
When all that I meant was
I'm not here to change what’s inside of you

Did I throw away my hand
Full of hearts
Or did I let you win

Did I turn my head
To your love
Or did I really let you in

I didn’t ask what you did
When we were apart
I knew I took the chance
That another man would steal your heart

You want me to care
Enough to question you
But I won’t do that anymore
It’s time to trust what's inside of you

Did I throw away my hand
Full of hearts
Or did I let you win

Did I turn my head
To your love
Or did I really let you in

If you can believe in me
The way I believe in you
We can be free
And be who we are too

If you can believe in you
The way I believe in me
We can be together
And be who we want to be

Be free

Be free
But be with me
Be with me
Be free
Be free
But be with me
