you say you gotta go and find yourself
you say that you're becoming someone else
don't recognize the face in the mirror
looking back at you

you say you're leavin
as you look away
i know theres really nothin left to say
just know i'm here
whenever you need me
i'll wait for you

so i'll let you go
i'll set you free
and when you see what you need to see
when you find you come back to me

take your time i wont go anywhere
picture you with the wind in your hair
i'll keep your things right where you left them
i'll be here for you

oh and i'll let you go
i'll set you free
and when you see what you need to see
when you find you come back to me

and i hope you find everything that you need
i'll be right here waiting to see
you find you come back to me

i can't get close if your not there
i can't get inside if theres no soul to bear
i can't fix you i can't save you
its something you have to do

so i'll let you go
i'll set you free
and when you see what you need to see
when you find you come back to me
come back to me
so i'll let you go
i'll set you free
and when you see what you need to see
when you find you come back to me

and i hope you find everything that you need
i'll be right here waiting to see
you find you come back to me

when you find you come back to me
when you find you come back to me
when you find you come back to me

    its like that saying "if u really love something, love it enough 2 set it free", this is kinda like the rascal flatts song "then i did". in words anyway, but yeah great song!

    someone he loves wants to find his/her "self"..it's a part of life that he is supporting -- to find who we really are. and it's something we can only do ourselves that's why he says "i can't fix you, i can't save you...".
    if he/she comes back he hopes that the person is happier with himself/herself.

    really like it!!! =)

    Some times no matter we do for our couple, we never gonna be able to make them happy, because they are not happy with themselves... My wife asked to get divorce even when i have done even the impossible to make her happy... She told the same words on this song " i am sorry, i don't know who i am, i am not feeling happy, and in order to be happy with someone else, i need to find myself"unfortunately i cannot force her to stay with me, and i hope one day she will realize that she let go away a guy who really loves her for who she is...

    My girlfriend of two years needs to go and figure out who she is and not what she is pretending to be. It's tough to let go, but the song is leaving a door slightly open if they come back. Even if you move on, the door is still open for her to come back as she was an important part of my life for the past two years.
