Free to go
(on One part lullaby LP)

catching butterflies lines drives watching tv
D                                                            G
i had seven good years til they noticed they were looking at me
G                       D
i didn't like what they see

trapped in the back seat stay on your side
my hand out the window feeling the air rush by
while my parents fight

G              Em
where did you go
did i make you leave
another thing i didn't know
G             Em             D
nobody ever believes they just leave they just leave
         G                                           D
and they'll see you on their own sweet time they just leave

i didn't leave my room til i learned how to drive
i was sweet seventeen fighting with the back of my mind
til the wheel was all mine

G       Em
free to go
but still too young to leave
old enough to think i know
that nobody ever believes
G             Em
they just leave
they just leave

my plane landed i'm alive
i'm not fighting with the things i never thought i'd do to survive
now we've finally arrived

now i know
more than i've ever believed
you could never let me know
you were just as young as me
you had to leave
you had to leave
