Why Won’t You Set Me Free

Why Won’t You Set Me Free

Here you come walking through the door
Just like last night and the night before
I smell the whiskey on your breath
I know you’ve been with someone else

Tell me what I ever did to you
To make you treat me so damn cruel
If hurting me is in your plans
There’s something I don’t understand

Chorus:
Why won’t you set me free
When it’s the right thing to do
Try to think about me
You know I’d do it for you
If I say please, will you tell me
Why won’t you set me free

Even when you’re at home with me
I can tell you don’t want to be
You say you’re going out for a beer
You’re going any place but here

Every time I hear that door close
It hurts me more than you’ll ever know
I wonder if you’re coming back
And I can’t take much more of that

Chorus:
Why won’t you set me free
When it’s the right thing to do
Try to think about me
You know I’d do it for you
If I say please, will you tell me
Why won’t you set me free

Bridge:
Have a little sympathy
For this old heart of mine
Look me in the eyes
While I ask you one more time

Chorus:
Why won’t you set me free
When it’s the right thing to do
Try to think about me
You know I’d do it for you
If I say please, will you tell me
Why won’t you set me free
