"You Are Free" as written by Kori Gardner Hammel and Jason Edward Hammel....
I had a dream last night
That we lost the fight
I had a reason to stay in the back of my head
Still, I have to say goodbye
Here, in this bed

Free
You are free
Free
You are free

You oughta lay down low
Covered in packs of snow
Lay down low
Covered in packs of snow

Your hands they know
We're nearing the end

Free
You are free
Free
You are free

Stop telling me the right way to go
I'm on my own
You're selling our old ways
Stop telling me the right way to go

You are free
You are free
Living things need to be free
You are free
Like everything wants to be

    General CommentI really love this song. I'm not sure what it means, probably a break up or something... all I know is that it's good but it has to grow on your first.

    General CommentI knew that it wasn't just:
    "Your hands they know We're nearing the end"

    So I listened to the song, and this is what I came up with. it may night be accurate, but it's pretty close:

    you oughta lay down low
    covered in packs of snow

    guy:
    i had a dream last night
    that we were walking in fright
    covered up all the years that soon became clear
    and got all the tears we can cry

    girl:
    with arms below
    ............keep you warm
    covered hands they know
    ......................................

    we're nearing the end

    The song talks about being "covered in packs of snow", then after that it mentions the hands being covered and warm. It makes me think that although she thinks he should be buried in snow, he should still be warm. It's as if she's mad at him for having to break up and she wants him out of her sight, but she still wants him to be happy.

    General CommentI think it's about that moment in a relationship when you realize that, although breaking up seems the hardest thing to do, it is the only way you can both be really happy in the end.
