"Free" as written by Lem Springsteen, Ultra Nate Wyche and John C. Ciafone....
It's not like I'm invisible
You still wear me under your skin
When we talk, we don't talk at all
Too weak to leave, too stubborn to give in
Who is gonna be the first to say a truce
It's not enough that we should part, can't stop fighting too

We don't let go, we can't get close
I still need you when you still need me
This tug of war can't go on anymore
Nobody wins from this misery
Free, well oh can't you see,
I wanna be free, I want you to be, free

It's not like she isn't loving you
It's just that you can't be alone for too long
I'd like to wish you all the happiness
Maybe the truth is it will kill me if you move on
Who is gonna be the first to say enough
Who is gonna be the first one to find true love

We don't let go, we can't get close
I still need you when you still need me
This tug of war can't go on anymore
Nobody wins from this misery
Free, well oh can't you see,
I wanna be, I want you to be, free

Let it be, let it be, just a beautiful memory
Anything that starts will have an ending
Let it go, let it go, yeah 'cause we both know
This will only be over when we're free
Yeah yeah yeah, oh when we're free
Oh oh I know oh

We don't let go, we can't get close
I still need you and you still need me
This tug of war can't go on anymore
Nobody wins from this misery
Free, well oh can't you see,
I wanna be, I want you to be
Whoa, free ah, I wanna be, I want ya to be
Oh can't we be, free
Oh I wanna be, free, yeah yeah yeah

    General CommentThis song has a lot of meaning to me. Basically, this song is about this girl and her ex boyfriend who have broken up for some reason, but they keep talking anyway and fighting, as though it is not really over between them although it is. This song reminds me of my ex boyfriend. He was the first boyfriend I ever had. I loved him so much and I thought I was going to love him forever, and he promised me forever, then one day, he broke up with me out of the blue. I was sad, but I moved on. That was my sophomore year in high school. Then my junior year is when my ex and I began fighting big time, but then after fighting he would tell me that he loved me still and he'd want me back then I would consider going back, but before I would go back with him, he would hurt me again. It was a constant pattern all year. We both could not let go of each other, even though I had fallen out of love with him. I wanted to wish him all the happiness and wish I could see him with another girl without it tearing me up inside. I always wondered who would be the one to call the truce. It turned out it was me, over the summer going into my senior year. He keeps trying even now, telling me he was wrong and he loves me. I always wondered who would be the first to find true love,and that person was me, and now the game of tug of war is over I am finally free.
