"Set You Free" as written by and Kim L. Owens....
You hold on to love that's gone
Run a mile to see him smile
But you don't know he's door to door playin' you for the fool

[Chorus]
Let him go, walk out your door
And come to me
I'm gonna set you free

Now you look and there you go back to him, he's gonna do you in
Tear you down and run you around
Treat you wrong and then he's gone

[Chorus]

You hold on to love that's gone
Run a mile to see him smile
But you don't know he's door to door playin' you for the fool

[Chorus]

I'll set you free [Repeat: x5]

    General Commentyeah, obviously this song is about a guy trying to convince a girl that the douche she is with is not worth it because he's running around on her. i pretty much hate most popular music since the 90s and im really into classic rock. the first time i heard this song i couldn't believe this guys were a new band. they have a great sound, especially for just two guys. it really got me into the black keys.

    General CommentFor alot of Keys songs I find myself saying, "I love the way he says that!" and when it comes to this song: "Walk out your door."
