Free For A Little While

A song about wanting independence & freedom in a relationship

I promise I won’t forget
The times you held my hand
And when we wrote ‘you and I’ in the sand.
I will remember it all
When you turn off the lights
And leap into bed, and hold me so tight.

But darling it suffocates me
Even when you do it gently
I don’t know who I am
It’s like I’m bound with my hands.

(Chorus)
I need to be free from you
To think a few things through
Just to be me
Think independently
I have to go on my own
For a little while.

You tell me
There’s too much at stake
I tell you
It’s a risk I’m gonna have to take
Though I don’t have the right to make
The choice of your heartache.

But listen to me dear
It will soon be all clear
Just wait for me please
‘Til I find what I need.

(Chorus)
I have to be free from you
To think a few things through
Just to be me
Think independently
I have to go on my own
For a little while.

(Bridge)
But something I know
Is that I still love you
Just cos I gotta go
Doesn’t mean we’re through.

(Chorus)

I need to be free from you
To think a few things through
Just to be me
Think independently
I have to go on my own
For a little while.

The End
