Set Free - Original Song Lyrics by Christopher Dapo

Updated on February 7, 2012

I can't see
Where my life is taking me
No better than I ever could before

The road before me
Has a way of breaking me
I'm stuck remembering how I slammed the door

The time has come
But oh so long it's taken me
To pick myself up off the dusty floor

My memory
Serves as well forsaking me
Preserving how the bell can toll once more

Look in my eyes
Tell me
What do you see
A majestique
Held back by misery
I can see
All the turmoil before me
Just once I'd like to just be set free

I can't see
Where my life is taking me
No better than I ever could before

The road before me
Has a way of breaking me
I'm stuck remembering how I slammed the door

The time has come
But oh so long it's taken me
To pick myself up off the dusty floor

My memory
Serves as well forsaking me
Preserving how the bell can toll once more

Look in my eyes
Tell me
What do you see
A common quake
Retreated by the sea
I can feel
All the suffering before me
Just once I'd like to just be set free

I can't see
Where my life is taking me
No better than I ever could before

My memory
Serves as well forsaking me
Preserving how the bell can toll once more

Look in my eyes
Tell me
What do you see
A majestique
Held back by misery
I can see
All the turmoil before me
Just once I'd like to just be set free

Just once I'd like to just be set free
