Set Me Free

by Séan McCann

about

"We talked about Johnny Cash and a compass... and of course the black bear...

I was so inspired by the line: "I believe that out there somewhere there's a love that will set me free." Especially because it comes right after- "I was lost in the middle of nowhere, I was tossed on the angry sea." In all respects, you could have been afraid or scared or sad or angry, but that line is none of those things. It is searching and faithful and hopeful. It's bright and positive. It's not a perfect knowledge, but a real belief that things are going to be okay, even after the stormy time you went through. I wanted this image to show that... Bright and hopeful but not settled. Still searching, but okay with that. Yellow seemed to be the perfect colour. The black bear isn't perfectly contented, but he believes he is free."

Meaghan Smith

lyrics

i want to live a simple life
get a job and pay my dues
settle down with my pretty wife
find a Love i’ll never lose
I want to sing a Simple Song
one that brings down all your blues
i want to make right what went wrong
find a love i’ll never lose
i was lost in the middle of nowhere
i was tossed on the angry sea
i believe that out there somewhere
there’s a Love that will Set me Free
When they lay my body down
and my soul flies to the sky
don’t wanna see you with a frown
don’t wanna hear my children cry
i was lost in the middle of nowhere
i was tossed on the angry sea
i believe that out there somewhere
there’s a love that will Set me Free
when i go back to the ground
i’ll leave you something that you can use
it’s worth more than any crown
i’ll leave a Love you’ll never lose
i was lost in the middle of nowhere
i was tossed on the angry sea
i believe that out there somewhere
there’s a Love that will set me free
Yes i believe that out there somewhere
there’s a Love that will set me Free
