"'Free' was written while I was sitting on my dad's back porch in Miami, staring out at one of the most beautiful sunsets I'd ever seen. I thought of what it would be like to witness that kind of spectacle every day, no matter the liberating it would feel to be constantly reminded of how small we are in relation to everything else. And be OK with that."
– Francesca


Find me place on the West Coast
Where everything is yellow
I'm so tired of feeling the blue
I'm so tired of feeling the blue

Find me a place in the ocean
Where time and space aren't a notion
So dark and quiet is the Sea
So dark and quiet...

You seem so free
You seem so free
You seem so free
Wish I could be

Find me a place in your heart please
A tiny place where it doesn't bleed
I want to live to be a hundred and two
But I can't live the way I wanted to

You seem so free
You seem so free
You seem so free
Wish I could be

Je t'ai vu de loin, et j'ai voulu m'approcher. Je n'ai pas osé. Tu semblais être si sûr de toi même. De ta force. Tes envies. Apprends moi...
Un jour je partirai, amoureuse de la vie comme toi.
Bientôt, tu verras. L'aventure m'attend. Tout sera clair et libre. Libre, comme toi.
