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 there's 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 won't 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
When you find you, come back to me

I can't get close if your not there
I can't get inside if there's no soul to bear
I can't fix you I can't save you
It's 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
When 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
