"You Set Me Free" as written by John M Shanks and Michelle Branch....
Can't you see?
There's a feeling that's come over me
Close my eyes
You're the only one that leaves me completely breathless

No need to wonder why
Sometimes a gift like this you can't deny

'Cause I wanted to fly,
so you gave me your wings
And time held its breath so I could see, yeah
And you set me free

There's a will
There's a way
Sometimes words just can't explain
This is real
I'm afraid
I guess this time there's just no hiding, fighting
You make me restless

You're in my heart
The only light that shines
there in the dark

'Cause I wanted to fly,
so you gave me your wings
And time held its breath so I could see, yeah
And you set me free

When I was alone
You came around
When I was down
You pulled me through
And there's nothing that
I wouldn't do for you

'Cause I wanted to fly,
so you gave me your wings
And time held its breath so I could see, yeah
And you set me free

    General CommentYeah its a very happy song. Makes you wonder when you're gonna feel that way if you're alone. And if you're with someone you can't help but secretly dedicate this song to them. lol

    General Commentyah this is a very good song.
    it sounds like something you would sing to a best (opposite sex) friend, that you ended up falling in love with.

    General CommentIt sounds to me like she is in love with this guyb who would do anything for her, just like he would do anything for her. She's a bit cautious about loving him at first, but then she just let go and loves him, and realizes that he's the only one who can set her free. Love it!
