"Release Me" as written by and Elizabeth Anne Berg....
Wish you knew I'm not the one for you
You're not the one for me, and I can't stand it
After all I put you through, you're still just stuck like glue
Why don't you run from me, 'cause I can't leave you
Before I break your heart release me

Oh, mine is such a sorry state, I gave my heart away
When I could love with grit and gut and reckless unrestraint
Those were the days

I wish you knew I'm not the one for you
You're not the one for me, and I can't stand it
After all I put you through, you're still just stuck like glue
Why don't you run from me, 'cause I can't leave you
Before I break your heart, release me

Oh you're a boy that I could love, and all I do is run
But still I keep you hoping someday soon our day will come
And it never does

I wish you knew I'm not the one for you
I'm just a sad excuse for what you long for
And after all I do, you're still just stuck like glue
Why don't you run from me, 'cause I can't leave you
Before I break your heart release me

Nothing ever changes, people never change
So passion turns to sheer complusion, then love turn to hate

I wish you knew I'm not the one for you
You're not the one for me, and I can't stand you
After all you put me through, I'm still just stuck like glue
Why don't you run from me, 'Cause I can't leave you
Before I break your heart, before it breaks my heart
Before you break my heart
Release me

    General CommentIt seems she's in a relationship with a guy, and they're both not the best match for each other - they don't necessarily treat each other the way either one wants to be treated -- but they're still together. She wants to break up with him, but doesn't want to have to go through with breaking his heart. So she stays with him even though she does not want to, but he starts to get under her skin. I can definitely relate on some levels -- I see it as knowing that you need to let go of love that isn't right for you, but you can't bring yourself to even though it's what you really want.

    it is a sort of a sad song, because she seems to love him, but she is still confused about everything...
