When you came to me, when I was on top,
well your songs blew through me -- sounds like wind that just crushes then lifts you back up.

Well I made a decision, and we suffered the costs,
and a year was spent wishing we'd not fear what we love and get back what we'd lost.

We used to be inspiring -- we used to be inspired.
But have you tired of me? I know I've been tiring, but babe I've just been so tired.

Now here's something that you know, and sometimes you know too well.
And if reminding is needed, it's probably myself that I got to tell --
you are free --
free as anyone could be,
free as anyone could be --
but don't just take it from me.
Don't just take it from me.

You are free --
free as anyone could be,
free as anyone could be --
but don't just take it from me.
Don't just take it from me (x3)

It's not for me to say,
but either way, you are free.
When you came to me, when I was on top,
well your songs blew through me -- sounds like wind that just crushes then lifts you back up.

Well I made a decision, and we suffered the costs,
and a year was spent wishing we'd not fear what we love and get back what we'd lost.

We used to be inspiring -- we used to be inspired.
But have you tired of me? I know I've been tiring, but babe I've just been so tired.

Now here's something that you know, and sometimes you know too well.
And if reminding is needed, it's probably myself that I need to tell --
you are free -- free as anyone could be --
but don't just take it from me.

It's not for me to say,
but either way, you are free.

    General CommentI'd say this song is about his old band, Chisel. They have an album titled "Set You Free". That's my best guess.
