"Release" as written by and Jeffrey Scott/chatwood Martin....
I want the world to wake
I want to give you peace
I want to vindicate
You need to be released

Don't want to hurt you
I need to make you see
If I desert you
It's just to make you see

That I'm a man that's weak
And I'm a man that's lost
I gave it all away
To complicate the cost

Don't want to hurt you
I need to make you see
If I desert you
It's just to make you see
I'm not going to hurt you now
I need to make you see
If I desert you now
It's just to make you see

I want you to be free
I want you to be free from me

    General CommentIts about the way women are treated (in some countries). Forced to wear tons of clothing and disguise their beauty. If you have Tangents, the background to this song is in there.

    General CommentI saw Jeff talk about this in an interview, this was written to his ex girlfriend and how he ignored her and treated her lousy while he was mired in a sort of depressed place that music this great often comes from. This song was written partly as an apology/explanation to her. "I want you to be free from me"

    General CommentThis song is a classic for me. All Tea Party & Jeff Martin emotionals songs are excellent btw.
    I also think he means that they're both gonna have a better life without each other.
    That's exactly how I feel about my girlfriend and ex-girlfriend.
    I tried to say it several times to my actual girlfriend, be she doesn't want to hear it.

    General CommentThis song is hittin' like a ton of bricks. Exactly as I feel about my boyfriend right now. As much as it hurts me to bear the thought of losing him, I can't see any other way than to let him go. I don't think he's happy with me anymore, and would rather him be free.
