Dying to Be Free

Liner Notes: 

For a female singer. When I sing this to myself, I do it in "dark country" style. But it definitely doesn't need to be in that style.

Please let me know if you'd like to set this lyric to music.

Thanks!

--Doug

Lyrics: 

V1
I used to have high hopes
But they’ve all blown away
The romance I was dreaming of
Never sees the light of day

It’s hard for me to sleep at night
Too many doubts and fears
So wrong when I thought I had found
Someone to dry my tears

(Chorus)
You may just say I’m crazy
When I share what’s on my mind:
We all get another go-around
Once we leave this world behind
And I’ve grown tired of the dark clouds
Long hanging over me
It’s time for me to start anew
I’m dying to be free

V2
His touches made me smile
His kisses made me melt
Now all that I am feeling
Is the lashing of his belt

I don’t think I can take much more
It’s gone from bad to worse
But he’ll never let us separate
Till a body’s in a hearse

(Chorus)
You may just say I’m crazy
When I share what’s on my mind:
We all get another go-around
Once we leave this world behind
And I’ve grown tired of the dark clouds
Long hanging over me
It’s time for me to start anew
I’m dying to be free

(Bridge)
In the moment he won’t see
But let’s call this a dead end
His next life is a chance to make amends

(Solo)

(Chorus)
You may just say I’m crazy
When I share what’s on my mind:
We all get another go-around
Once we leave this world behind
And I’ve grown tired of the dark clouds
Long hanging over me
It’s time for me to start anew
I’m dying to be free
(Repeat)

Nasty bit of work, that man she's stuck with. Hope she gets free! Solid lyric and storytelling.

That second verse really brings it home. I could see this set in the old west or in modern times. The image of the dark clouds in the chorus is a good one.

Damn, didn't see that twist coming. I do like the ambiguity of "a body's in a hearse" - whose? Hope it's his! Though her "dying to be free" suggests otherwise.
