I'm Free
Lyrics
Baby I don't know what I ever saw,
In the person that you've always been.
I was blinded by words never meant,
Left to drown in the silence between.
There were always signs it'd come to this,
Omens that were dangling in the wind.
I ignored all the shards of contempt,
Peppered into the words that you'd send.

CHORUS
You crushed my soul without a sound,
Your eyes like daggers pinned my spirit to the ground.
But now I'm free to stand alone.
I'm leaving everything I once believed was home.
Now I'm free, woah I'm free.

Will you see the light once I'm gone for good?
Recognizing things that you'd overlooked,
Like the listening ears I gave,
How my life was your open book.
There is nothing more you could say or do,
No way that my heart could afford that cost.
No seduction could sway my mind,
What we had is forever lost.

CHORUS
You crushed my soul without a sound,
Your eyes like daggers pinned my spirit to the ground.
But now I'm free to stand alone.
I'm leaving everything I once believed was home.
Now I'm free, woah I'm free.

I spent six years being criticized for every action,
And all that time you had me believing I was broken, and

CHORUS
You crushed my soul without a sound,
Your eyes like daggers pinned my spirit to the ground.
But now I'm free to stand alone.
I'm leaving everything I once believed was home.
Now I'm free, woah I'm free.
"Cause I'm free, woah I'm free.
