Be Free

I've had this acoustic guitar-runny lick bit in my head for quite some time and was having a nap one afternoon after playing with it, wondering where it might lead, when this idea popped into my head, which I immediately bounced up and started to write down. It kind of started with an image and then grew into a tirade for the release of humanity from the tyranny of the 9-5 prison.

We're playing it tonight at The Alley in our live debut, but I haven't recorded it yet. I'll post an MP3 as soon as I've got one. As always, this version is entirely provisional - feel free to suggest fixes.

Be Free

Got surf and sand, sun and sea
Walk the beach just you and me
That’s all we need
We’ll find the time and find the space
Live at our own pace.
Got a soul to feed

You bust your gut each day but your pay ain’t no guarantee
This soul tattoo makes me want to break free

So oooohhh, come away with me Be Free
Yeeeeeah, see what we might see Be Free

Got open plains and trails to ride
Mountains high and rivers wide.
That’s all we need
We’ll take off down the highway
Like every day’s a Friday. Got a soul to feed

For stress and sweat all you get ain’t no guarantee
This soul tattoo makes me want to break free

So oooohhh, come away with me Be Free
Yeeeeeah, see what we might see Be Free

Break down on the verse pattern

Got friends with time to spare for me
Sharing creativity
That’s all we need.
We’ll find the time and find the space
Leave the fuckin’ rat race
Got a soul to feed

With room to move, feel the groove. There’s your guarantee
Your soul feels new. That makes me want to run free

Chorus x 2
