I guess there's only one place to go from here
I think the options are clear anyway
I’m sure you’re tired of waiting for me
To figure out where you fit in
I guess I’m afraid of what we could be
Cause I don't want to sell you short of your dreams
I’m sorry for making you wait for me
Cause I don't want to hold you down
But I don't want to set you free
I don't want to make you run from me

I guess it's hard to believe that I
Could make myself give up
After all this time you and me
Trying hard to make sense of our differences
Pretending we both had everything
I guess I believed in our fantasy
You only loved the one you wanted me to be
I’m sorry for breaking your faith in me
I don't want to hold you down

But what if you're more than I could please
Could you accept apologies?
I don't want to squander all your time
I don't want to mislead you
I think we both knew that it was done
Sorry I had to be the one
Sometimes I wish it were the other way around

I wish you weren't supposed to be Set free

    General CommentAmazing song. Always gets stuck in my head. It's about trying to decide whether or not you want to be with someone, when you know in your heart, it's already over. It's about having someone wait for you while you make up your mind. Breaking someone's heart.

    General Commenti think it's about knowing that a relationship is over but staying in it "for the memories"... but finally realizing that you can't live for the past... you have to let go
