Set Yourself Free (Doing No Time): 52 Songs In 52 Weeks — Song #16

“Set Yourself Free (Doing No Time)” is the sixteenth song in my songwriting series 52 Songs In 52 Weeks. Hope you like it.

Well, there ain’t no solution
When there ain’t no crime
If someone breaks your heart
They won’t be doing no time

If you build your own prison
Inside your own mind
Where the nights stretch out forever
And the keys you can’t find

Chorus
You’ve got to set yourself free
You’ve got to set yourself free
You’ve got to set yourself free
Well, you’ve got one life so live it
Don’t let them take and give it

Solo

When they’re not coming back
When they’ve run with all the money
When you’re all dressed in black
And the bees won’t make no honey

Chorus
You’ve got to set yourself free
You’ve got to set yourself free
You’ve got to set yourself free
Well, you’ve got one life so live it
Don’t let them take and give it

Bridge
Oh no no no no no
You’ve got to let them go
Let today be
The day you set yourself free

Chorus
You’ve got to set yourself free
You’ve got to set yourself free
You’ve got to set yourself free
Oh, you’ve got one life so live it
Don’t let them take and give it

Solo

Chorus
Set yourself free
You’ve got to set yourself free
Come on and set yourself free
You’ve got one life so live it
Don’t let them take and give it
