Set me free, oh I pray.

I said I wanna touch the earth
I wanna break it in my hands
I wanna grow something wild and unruly

I wanna sleep on the hard ground
In the comfort of your arms
On a pillow of bluebonnets
In a blanket made of stars

Oh it sounds good to me I said

Cowboy take me away
Fly this girl as high as you can
Into the wild blue
Set me free oh I pray

Closer to heaven above and
Closer to you closer to you

I wanna walk and not run
I wanna skip and not fall
I wanna look at the horizon
And not see a building standing tall

I wanna be the only one
For miles and miles
Except for maybe you
And your simple smile

Oh it sounds good to me
Yes it sounds so good to me

Cowboy take me away
Fly this girl as high as you can
Into the wild blue
Set me free oh I pray
Closer to heaven above and
Closer to you closer to you

I said I wanna touch the earth
I wanna break it in my hands
I wanna grow something wild and unruly
Oh it sounds so good to me

Cowboy take me away
Fly this girl as high as you can
Into the wild blue
Set me free oh I pray
Closer to heaven above and
Closer to you closer to you
Closer to you
Cowboy take me away.

The VoKols (my a Capella group) are headed to New York City to perform.  I need this getaway.  I need an escape-- some time to rid the demons that cloud my mind.  I'm hoping this trip will help set me free.  Have a wonderful weekend.

  1. Have so much fun singing your heart out! What songs are you singing? Do you have any solos? I am so excited for you. I know that you are going to have so much fun and maybe being in the city will make you feel alive.

  10. I love that song. It's a shame that because of a comment they said, they were lost as a band. They truly were (and still are) one of my all time favorites.
