Art For When - Liora Meyer

I will be free when I see you next
I will be free when I forget about you
I will be free when I hold you
I will be free when I let you go
I will be free when you tell me you need me
I will be free when you tell me you don’t
I will be free when you text me five times in a row
I will be free when I put your number on “do not disturb”
I will be free when you tell me I look beautiful
I will be free when I stop caring what you say
I will be free when you teach me all you know
I will be free when I realize you are not the ultimate truth
I will be free when we listen to music together
I will be free when we choose different songs
I will be free when you set me free
I will be free when I let myself free
And I will be free when you love me
And I love you
