Written by Mary Gauthier



It's a cheap hotel, the heat pipes hiss
The bathroom's down the hall, and it smells like piss


It's another night in another town

And I'm another blues traveler headed down



Falling out of love is a dangerous thing


With it's slippery slopes and it's weighted wings
With it's birds of prey circling overhead

Casting vulture shadows on barren beds
Let me out, set me free




Let me out, set me free

The clock inside the church bell tower


Rings your name every hour
I see your face, I touch your hair

Then the ringing fades and nobody's there



Falling out of love is a treacherous thing
With it's crucible kiss and it's ravaged ring

With it's holy whispers and labyrinth lies



Sacrilegious hungry sighs
Let me out, set me free
Let me out, set me free




I walk the streets, and I taste the dirt

I am flesh and blood, and my body hurts

I search your silence looking for a crack
For a passageway where I can pull you back




Falling out of love is a tedious thing


With it's jailhouse smirk and it's chain gang swing
Its time to serve and it's sentence set

With it's warm blood and cold sweat

Let me out, set me free
