If you love somebody set them free

If you love somebody, set them free

 

If it’s a mirror you want, just look into my eyes

Or a whipping boy, someone to despise

Or a prisoner in the dark

Tied up in chains you just can’t see

Or a beast in a gilded cage

That’s all some people ever want to be

 

If you love somebody, set them free

 

You can’t control an independent heart

Can’t tear the one you love apart

Forever conditioned to believe that we can’t live

We can’t live here and be happy with less

So many riches, so many souls

Everything we see that we want to possess

 

(The Police)
