about

This is a song about the duality of love. Just as there is a fine line between pleasure and pain, when you are in love you tread the line between tenderness and violent passion, protectiveness and overprotectiveness. There are many different ways you can interpret the phrase: "to have and to hold".

lyrics

"Free Bird"

Free bird
Come home to me
It's been three years
Since you spread your wings and left us for the world

Dreaming
But my eyes are set upon the horizon
I've got a feeling
That the sky's not so very welcome to you any more

If I could capture you
I'd do all I could
I'd take care of you
Just like a good man should
'Cos I'm in love with you
Let that be understood
If you asked me to
I would

You're my fire, you're my life itself
I can't breathe when you're leaving with somebody else
Wanna feel my arms around you
Wanna steal your love to surround me

If I could capture you
I'd bend you to my will
I'd enrapture you
I'd make you mine until
I grow tired of you
The come in for the kill
If you ask me to
I will

If I could capture you
I'd do all I could
I'd take care of you
Just like a good man should (if I were a good man)
'Cos I'm in love with you
Let that be understood
If you asked me to
I would
