set me free lyrics – chris rea

wake up, see the morning light
this is you, this is today
you try so hard to get it right
can’t help thinking somewhere you’ve lost your way

when was the last time
you saw a smile?
there’s a scream on every silent face you see
they’re singing set me free, set me free

i got a friend who burns like a fire
says there’s only thing you’ll ever know
it’s out there somewhere
way past the sunset line
way out on the open road

and me i’m always looking down
down that road out of town
each morning and night you can see me
i’m singing set me free, set me free

goodnight auberge
i leave you now
you must sleep
while i work the day

till i return
to dream of you
through the night
and that free, freeway
