Wilson Phillips – Release Me

10 Comments

This song is one of those songs that instantly transports me to the time in my life I first heard. Are there any such songs for you?

One of my aunts lived in Denmark when we were kids and she would send us a bunch of VCR tapes on which she recorded music videos that were playing on the music channels over there. One of these tapes had a video of this song on it. I fell in love. I used to play this song over and over again and now when I listen to it, I instantly find myself in a cooler place watching this video on our ancient tv set that made me thankful the video was black and white.

Here it is embedded below followed by the lyrics of the song.

Release Me Lyrics

I know that it’s time for a change
Mmm but when that change comes
Will you still feel the same?

How many times have I tried to turn this love around?
I don’t wanna give up
But baby it’s time I had two feet on the ground
Can you release me can you release me

Now that you’re gone I can’t help myself from wondering
Oh, if you’d have come down from your high
Would we’ve been all right?
Release me
Can you release me

Come on baby, come on baby
You knew it was time to just let go
‘Cause we wanna be free
But somehow it’s just not that easy
Come on Darlin’, hear me Darlin’
‘Cause you’re a waste of time for me
I’m trying to make you see
That baby you’ve just got to release me
Release me, release me

I’m not going back to you anymore
Finally my weakened heart is healing though very slow
So stop coming around my door
‘Cause you’re not gonna find
What you’re looking for oh ooh oh yeah

Come on baby, come on baby
You knew it was time to just let go
‘Cause we wanna be free
But somehow it’s just not that easy
Oh oh oh baby Come on Darlin’, now hear me Darlin’
‘Cause you’re a waste of time for me
I’m trying to make you see
That baby you just got to release me

(Now tell me)
What is this power you’ve got on me
What is this power, Oh
What is it,What is it

Come on baby, come on baby
You knew it was time to just let go
‘Cause we wanna be free
But somehow it’s just not that easy
Oh oh oh oh baby Come on Darlin’, now hear me Darlin’
‘Cause you’re a waste of time for me
I’m trying to make you see
That baby you’ve just got to release me
Release me, release me
Release me
Will you release me
Ah…Release me
Will you release me
