"Release me" as written by and Chynna/wilson Phillips....
I am the wilderness locked in a cage
I am a growing force you kept in place
I am a tree reaching for the sun
Please don't hold me down
Please don't hold me down

I am a rolling wave without the motion
A glass of water longing for the ocean
I am an asphalt flower breaking free but you keep stoppin' me
Release me
Release me

I am the rain that's coming down on you
That you shielded yourself from with a roof
I am the fire burning desperately but you're controlling me
Release me
Release me

    General Commenti heard this song on the saab advert but i couldnt find any lyrics on this site for it so i decided to add some. i love this song. i think its about someone trying to break out of a relationship with someone who doesnt let them be who they want to be.

    General Commentthe band is actually called "Oh Laura" - they've been listed as that and also just as Laura on the site for some reason.
    anyway, their album is out now, and it's awesome - track it down if you can!

    General Commentthis song is amazing! it's got so much emotion in there. I think it's just about being trapped - maybe she's so in love with someone that she feels trapped as all her happiness depends on him, she wants him to release her, but maybe he doesn't even know what he's doing so she's just trapped in her obsession with him.

    General Commentalso, on the Saab ad they mesh parts of all the verses together:

    I am a growing force/ without the motion/
    A glass of water longing for the ocean/
    I have the fire burning desperately but you're controlling me/ release me
