"Free Me" as written by Connor Reeves, Joss Stone, Jonathan Nicholas Shorten, Leo Nocentelli and Eric Vandell Baker....
Ain't I got you on my back foot
And you know I got to feeling good
Cause there's something deep inside of me
I got to be

And if you find it hard to follow me
If I loose you in my creative stream
Than you only got to raise your eyes
And see me fly

Don't tell me that I won't
I will
Don't tell me that I'm not
I am
Don't tell me that my master plan
Ain't coming through

Don't tell me that I won't
I will
Don't tell me how to think
I fell
Don't tell me cause I know what's real
What I can do

Something that you don't see every day
A little girl who has found her way
In world that tries to take away
All of your dreams

I think there's one thing I will say to you
That there is nothing that you can't do
Cause it's all about your attitude
Don't let them get to you

Don't tell me that I won't
I will
Don't tell me that I'm not
I am
Don't tell me that my master plan
Ain't coming through

Don't tell me that I won't
I will
Don't tell me how to think
I fell
Don't tell me cause I know what's real
What I can do

And when we're singing it out our voice
We can make that choice to be free

And when we're singing it out our voice
We can make that choice to be free

Music, hey, I love it
Yeah, yes, I do
Music, now, now, now, what
I love it, yes, I do

Don't tell me that I won't
I will
Don't tell me that I'm not
I am
Don't tell me that my master plan
Ain't coming through

Don't tell me that I won't
I will
Don't tell me how to think
I fell
Don't tell me cause I know what's real
What I can do

Free me
Free me
Free me
Free me

    General CommentI can't believe no one has mentioned the underlying meaning of this song! Well, this is my theory. By the time she made this, her 4th album, Joss was sick and tired of being in the clutches of a major label and having no creative control. She had a contract with EMI and released her albums under the EMI label Virgin Records - including the album "Free Me." In the title track, she expresses her desire to be free from others' control, people telling her how to think, what to do, how to express herself, etc. Who do you think this was directed at? Well there's a major clue in the last few seconds of the song - as she sings "Free me, free me, free me," etc. she slips in 3 little letters at the end: "EMI"! Seriously, listen to the end and you'll hear it loud and clear. "Free me, free me, free me, E-M-I!" I love it! She slipped in a subtle kiss-off to her label even as she released an album through it. Much like Sara Bareilles did with her songs "Love Song" and "Bottle It Up." Tellingly, after this album Joss left EMI and launched her own label, releasing her 5th album on her own in 2011.
