Khalid - Free Spirit

[Verse 1]
We were running onto something
And we didn't say "forever," but it's all we wanted
You were so in love with simple things
And now we're searching for the fire dripped in kerosene
I've been loving more, living less
Off of highs and lows, so obsessed
Couldn't get nothin
But we're never running out

We'll be free spirits, free spirits
Can you hear me calling?
Oh, it's all or nothing
When you're free spirits, free spirits
Can you hear it calling?
'Cause I don't wanna live and die alone, don't let me go

[Verse 2]
Is this Heaven or Armageddon?
I'll be gettin' high with you to watch the endin'
We were drownin' down our memories
A cemetery full of bottles, man, that liquor bleed
When you're loving more, caring less
It's the highs and lows with no regrets, oh
And we wanted it all then
But we're never running out

“Free Spirit” is the title track of Khalid’s sophomore album, which was released on April 5, 2019. On “Free Spirit", Khalid is ready to let go of all of his worries and live his life in its purest form, and he invites someone around him to do the same. "“Free Spirit,” the title track, took me the longest to write. I’ve been holding on to that since May of last year and finished writing that song in February 2019. I wanted to make sure I wrote the title track after the album was done. I feel like it’s better to wrap everything up and find the common theme. “Free Spirit” is those first few steps into the world, when you realize that the world is not as easy as you planned it to be. In high school, we all have an idea of everything we want to achieve, but we don’t really accept the fact that it’s hard. Life is hard, moving on is hard, growing up is hard. That’s why a lot of people get comfortable and they find themselves stagnant. I didn’t want to do that. Music is my life at this point. Music is what allows me to live. But that’s an adult mentality. I still have love for it, but the fact that it pays off and people get to become impacted by the music, it’s amazing. I really wanted to make sure Free Spirit was personal." - via Billboard
