Set You Free This Time

by Gene Clark

Harold Eugene "Gene" Clark (November 17, 1944 – May 24, 1991) was an American singer-songwriter, and one of the founding members of the folk-rock group The Byrds.

The first thing that I heard you say 
When you were standing there 
Set in your way was that you were not blind     
You were sure to make a fool of me 
Cause there was nothing there 
That you could see 
That could go beyond your mind  
Now who's standing at the door 
Remembering the days before
And asking please be kind
It isn't how it was set up to be 
But I've set you free this time

I have never been so far out in front 
That I could ever ask for what I want 
And have it any time 
Knowing this you found a thought for me 
That told you just what I should be  
And there I stood behind
With all the ones that went before 
And memories that always seems to
Tear me from my mind 
In front of what it is you seem me to be 
I've set you free this time
I could never find a chance to choose 
Between a way to win or a thing to lose 
Because there was your stand 
On top of all the love you took
There was only something 
You can look at lying in your hand 
Now who's wondering what has changed 
And why it can not be arranged 
To have each thing work fine 
It isn't how it was set up to be 
But I'll set you free this time
