I'm calling out your name, but you're not listening
'Cause you're staring into space again
Hey, are you dreaming of a life that seems a little better?
Are you thinking that maybe you made the wrong decision?
It's the one thing I didn't want this to be
No the one thing I didn't want this to be

Honey if you wanna be free
You just gotta tell me
I'll free you from the nine to five kind of life, pretty from the outside
Dragging your heels, just tell me how it feels
In your nine to five kind of life, pretty from the outside

It's tearing me apart to see you like this
With your head in your hands, only a shadow of the person I miss
You're asking how I can like this, don't even like myself
Asking how can I be here, wish I were somewhere else
It's the one thing I didn't want this to be
No the one thing I didn't want this to be

Honey if you wanna be free
You just gotta tell me
I'll free you from the nine to five kind of life, pretty from the outside
Dragging your heels, just tell me how it feels
In your nine to five kind of life, pretty from the outside

When did I become the opposition?
Why do I deserve this quarantine?
When I'm fighting hard to get back to you
I'm confused by what your silence means
When you've built your home in troubled waters
When did I become the predator,
When I'm throwing you a line here, darling?
And I'm begging you to save yourself
Yeah I'm begging you to save, save, save yourself

Yeah if you wanna be free
You just gotta tell me
I'll free you from the nine to five kind of life, pretty from the outside
Dragging your heels, just tell me how it feels
In your nine to five kind of life, pretty from the outside

Be free
You just gotta tell me
I'll free you from the nine to five kind of life, pretty from the outside
Dragging your heels, just tell me how it feels
In your nine to five kind of life, pretty from the outside
