Lyrics

As I lend a morning stare into the mirror
Wash some of yesterday from my face
Think about a time when life was cleaner
I was so certain of my place

Thought I had a corner on the light
Oh, I could see everything all right
And out from the shadows something grabbed me and it held on tight
Made me watch while my youth fell out of sight

But it set me free, it set me free
Nothing’s the way it was supposed to be
But it set me free, oh how it set me free
It set my sail out on the open sea

Used to sit and listen to an old man speak
Heard only half of what he had to say
Now his words ring out as they fall in front of me
Somehow I knew it might work work out this way

He said there are no answers
Life is fair only to a few
So if you get what you need you’re a winner
Remember my boy we’re all just passing through

And it set me free, it set me free
Nothing’s the way it was supposed to be
But it set me free, oh how it set me free
It set my sail out on the open sea

So I laugh a joke now, maybe lift a smile
And play with this thought for a little while
And I’ll sit waiting behind this lock and key
Until that day when they set me free
