Set Me Free

Another season turns, a year goes by.

I can’t seem to keep you off my mind.

I see your face in the child you left behind.

These tears I fight pour down rain inside.

***

Refrain:

You set your sights on me.

Did you think I was a trophy?

One last time I’ll turn that key,

But know the truth has set me free.

***

Friends don’t call the way they used to do.

They all think I’m someone they once knew.

You were strong, someone I looked up to.

After all these years, who the hell are you?

***

Refrain:

You set your sights on me.

Did you think I was a trophy?

One last time I’ll turn that key,

But know the truth has set me free.

***

The place that we called home was built from ground.

Guess there’s nothing left here in this town.

The way things are no use to hanging ‘round.

You took my life and now you took my town.

***

Refrain:

You set your sights on me.

Did you think I was a trophy?

One last time I’ll turn that key,

But know the truth has set me free.

***

Tag:

Yeah, the truth has set me free.
