I’ll never forget it
What she said that day
It was cold and cloudy
I was on my way
To her studio apartment
Like we planned
She sounded different
I didn’t understand

It was pouring down buckets
On Highway seventeen
Said “Don’t bother coming”
She didn’t want to meet

She said
You’re free to be
Free to be
Free to be
Free of me
You’re free to be
Free of me

She was talking crazy
I was obsessed with her
I couldn’t stop thinking
About how we were
But here was this girl
Shutting her heart’s door
On a 7 minute phone call
But I wanted more

I got up to her place
She lived in Sunnyvale
We sat down outside
Her face was pale

As she said
You’re free to be
Free to be
Free to be
Free of me
Yeah, you’re free to be
Free of me

A freezing breeze
Hit me hard and fast
I had faith in what
I assumed would last
I said my goodbyes
And put on a tape
She successfully made
Her grand escape

She was
Free to be
Free to be
Free to be
Free of me
Yeah so free to be
Free of me
Yeah she desperately
needed to be free of me
She desperately
Needed to be free of me
