you say you’re free lyrics – dan hill

you say you’re free
well, your freedom’s killing me
and i feel just like a statue
to be admired from a distance
my love collides with your resistance
then bounces back inside of me

you tell me that you’re strong
well, your strength just shatters me
as i scramble for my pieces
but the puzzle keeps repeating
it seems so self-defeating
how we plan each move so carefully

and still we both hang on
we risk the night and greet the dawn
an affair for you, for me a song
and then suddenly it’s over

two cynics p*ssing through
i blew it, i fell in love with you
the thing i swore i’d never do
and now my love just turns you colder

you say you’re trying to find yourself
well, i know how hard that is
and i wish that i could help you
to share while life keeps teaching
to share while you keep reaching
but you prefer to reach out privately

and still we both hang on
we risk a night and greet the dawn
an affair for you, for me a song
and then suddenly it’s over

two cynics p*ssing through
i blew it, i fell in love with you
the thing i swore i’d never do
and now my love just turns you colder

you say you’re free
your freedom’s killing me
i feel just like a statue
to be admired from a distance
my love collides with your resistance
then bounces back inside of me
the pattern goes on endlessly
