This is a sentimental song written over two years and 26 American States...sung in backyards, living rooms, churches, parks, rooftops, & mountains. Enjoy


She wraps herself around
Our ankles
Making us out to be someone
We lied to all our sons
All we are is a chain gang of liberty
And I know I must have done something right
To fill your heart up with jealousy
I know I know

But wrap your thoughts around it
And maybe this time you'll see
That you can't go back to who you were
And if you let yourself believe it
Maybe this time you'll win

Bitter as the drugs that set in
I won't let them hold you down
Heavy as my heart is setting
I won't let it hold you down

It's you I know
It's you I hold
Let it go
Let it go
