about

Beat was created while screwing up another song - and I ran with it.

lyrics

Give me my life back, let me on my way,
Give me my life back, I just can't stay,
Because I've heard your cries,
Lord and they seem like lies,
And there's nothing I can do, no nothing for you,
You just gotta let me go, let me go and live my life.

Well its early in the morning when I'm still sleeping,
Maybe then you'll decide to call.
Or on a Saturday night, that's the time that you might,
Reach out and make me feel so small.
Cause you got to know that you got me on a string,
Got to know that I'll show every time you sing.
But it's gone too far, can't do it no more,
It's time for you to know.

Give me my life back, let me on my way,
Give me my life back, I just can't stay,
Because I've heard your cries,
Lord and they seem like lies,
And there's nothing I can do, no nothing for you,
You just gotta let me go, let me go and live my life.

I know I'm the only one who knows the truth,
That no one suffers more than you.
And even though I truly want to help
I know you don't want to help yourself...

(2x) Give me my life back, let me on my way,
Give me my life back, I just can't stay,
Because I've heard your cries,
Lord and they seem like lies,
And there's nothing I can do, no nothing for you,
You just gotta let me go, let me go and live my life.

Gotta let me go and live
