“Free”

I’m not trying to buy you back

Not asking for you to take me back

I know you’ve gotta be strong for you

But if you’re wondering, I still love you

Empty ended, here I come in peace

No flowers, no chocolates, no gimmick

Swallow my pride, it’s time to release

No colorful lies, no empty rhetoric

But baby hear me out

 

I wanna be free

Free from this pain

Sincerely I apologize

Please baby can we compromise

So you can be free

Free from this hurt

I’ve kept you mad for way too long

Cause again and again, I’ve done you wrong

How can we be free?

 

Free free free, open up your heart

Free free free, I wanna gain your trust

Free free free, I’m not tryna push

Free free free, oh baby there’s no rush

 

I might be asking for far too much

Can’t accept to lose a bond so strong

Back to when you were just a crush

For months on end you had me sprung

 

I never meant to let you down

It always hurts to see you frown

Down on one knee pleading my case

Though you don’t want to see my face

But baby hear me out

 

I wanna be free

Free from this pain

Sincerely I apologize

Please baby can we compromise

So you can be free

Free from this hurt

I’ve kept you mad for way too long

Cause again and again, I’ve done you wrong

How can we be free?

 

Free free free, open up your heart

Free free free, I wanna gain your trust

Free free free, I’m not tryna push

Free free free, oh baby there’s no rush

 

You’ve promised yourself there’ll be no more crying

(I can’t believe this is our fate)

I’ve promised myself I’ll still keep on trying

(So please don’t’ say that it’s too late)

 

I wanna be free

Free from this pain

Sincerely I apologize

Please baby can we compromise

So you can be free

Free from this hurt

I’ve kept you mad for way too long

Cause again and again, I’ve done you wrong

How can we be free?

 

Free free free, open up your heart

Free free free, I wanna gain your trust

Free free free, I’m not tryna push

Free free free, oh baby there’s no rush

 

Free, free, free, for you I’ll risk it all

Free, free, free, cause we’ve been through it all

Free, free, free, you’ve been my downfall

Free, free, free, together we’ll stand tall

 

So baby hear me out

 

I wanna be free
