Wale – Set You Free Lyrics




Play this song

[Intro: Wale]
Picture that, a black man learning to love himself
Wow, that’s crazy right?
Yo, yo

[Verse: Wale]
My highs, lows, my darks, lights
Couple of hoes, but no love life
I’m ashamed of the person that I’m becoming, see
Mind racing, too tired to chase a woman
How could you ever love me?
My attention is never yours, it’s never on me
And I respect you, of course, I hate to see you cry
But I’m the reason why, shorty
I’m Jekyll, I’m Hyde, I can’t even lie
Everybody want that crazy love
Until they find a crazy one, yeah
Yesterday, I’m in your face a lot
Then boom, I ain’t sayin’ none
I’m drinking more to think less, it’s true
Liquor become a crutch, can’t stand next to you, no
Self-loathing is my addiction amongst
Other things I don’t mention ’cause you be itchin’ to judge
It’s love, it’s overrated and underrated because
It seem like a placebo when it be done
I see myself on the TV, I’m unimpressed
You think you love me, but I don’t love me or, hol’ up, man
Because it seem like a placebo when it be done
I see myself on the TV, I’m unimpressed
You think you love me but I don’t love me enough
Woah, woah, woah
Love, love, love

[Chorus: Kelly Price]
If you believe
You just believe and you will receive
Love sets you free (Love sets you free, yeah)
It’s the only thing that’s (Love sets you free)
Gonna take you out (Oh yeah, oh)
If you believe, yeah (Yeah, yeah, oh-oh)
You gotta believe, you gotta believe, love (Oh)
That’s what you need (Judge you for real)
I believe it’s gonna take you through it

[Post-Chorus: Wale]
My highs, lows, my dark, lights
Couple of hoes, but no love life
My highs, lows, my dark, lights
Couple of hoes, but no love life
Love, love, love, love
Love, love, love

[Outro: Kelly Price]
Love sets you free, yeah
I wanna be set free
Love, come and set me free
Let me take you higher (Hey, oh no, yeah)
‘Cause I believe (If you believe)
You will receive, yeah yeah
Woah, mmm, oh
Oh, oh, love, love
