Bareilles, Sara - Free Ride Lyrics




Look how you're standing there
There with your hands out
Standing next to the road that goes up
Running your mouth about how you're gonna wait for the one that comes down
Who do you think you are? Somebody's baby?
You want what everyone has but you want your name on it
Think it happens like that? That would be nice wouldn't it
I've gotta be careful of you
I wanna get there too

You wanna go, but you want a free ride
You want it in but standing on the outside
I'm not the one to call when it comes undone
You want the world, but don't wanna pay out
Don't wanna hurt, and don't wanna say out loud that I'm right
There's no end in sight waiting on a free ride

You say your turn is coming and that's what you told me
So you stand in one place and wait for the tunnel to light up your face and award you for what you haven't done
And I know it's out of my hands
But I had to pay with blood, sweat, and tears while you dare to say that your lucky days passed you

You wanna go, but you want a free ride
You want it in, but standing on the outside
I'm not the one to call when it comes undone
You want the world, but don't wanna pay out
Don't wanna hurt, and don't wanna say out loud that I'm right
There's no end in sight waiting on a free ride

I see you when the lights rise up
You want some too
How could anyone blame you
I see you when the lights rise up
You want some too
How could anyone blame you

You wanna go, but you wanna free ride
You wanna go, but you wanna free ride
You wanna go, but you wanna free ride
You want it in, but standing on the outside
I'm not the one to call when it comes undone
You want the world, but don't wanna pay out
Don't wanna hurt, and don't wanna say out loud that I'm right
There's no end in sight waiting on a free ride

Waiting on a free ride
Waiting on a free ride
Since you've been gone

  1. VIV *Leggo*

    8 years and we never got this beautiful song on an album wth Sara, not cool, you're so talented you have the privilege to ditch songs like this

  2. BraveBreakaway

    When she sings "since u been gone" at the end, was she referring to the Kelly Clarkson song? lol

  3. Jarno Suni

    More pixels may mean worse low-light performance.

  4. Jeb Hoge

    A small guitar with four strings? It's a baritone ukulele.

  5. BOUKE03

    she is such an amazing singer in studio and live still waiting for a new album from her. also waiting to see her live

  6. J D

  7. natalie ly

  10. mark arney

    I FUCKING LOVE THIS SONG!!!!!!!!!!!! GREATEST SONG EVER WRITTEN!!!! EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Her voice is soooooooooooooo AMAZING!!

  11. rendez4

    @musicismyname7 Yeah my uke is an LU-21 Baritone. I wouldn't have any other uke - great sound and...yes, Sara plays it = even better :)

  12. Brian Young

    @rendez4 Is it an LU-21 Baritone? Considering buying a baritone uke, and am thinking about getting hers. one, because Sara plays it and I am an over-obsessed fan, and two because I have heard good things about it....

  13. Jyyuyioohoh

    @MrTroy2052 I understand this point of view, I really do, but the world doesn't have time to give each and every person their chance in the sunshine. We have to take those chances ourselves, and that's what Bareilles is saying.

  15. jon pinti

    Please come to my house and play you are cool

  16. Casey Nicole

    There's nothing fake about her music, and I have such respect for that.

  17. rendez4

    @TheJosephRue Sara uses a Lanikai Baritone Uke. I have the same one and have played this song using the chords she does here. Sounds exactly the same :)

  18. ageiiGIRL

    The passion is written all over her face in every performance, I fucking love that.

  19. Brian Young

    @TheJosephRue i've been watching her with that ukulele, and i do think it's a baritone. Though it MAY be a tenor. i'm not sure. It depends on the chords she plays. idk.

  20. Arianna Vargas

    Is this sone going to be on her next album?

  21. Saltarian

    She's just fuckin awesome

  22. Jess Neilson

    this isn't on the new album either!! :(

  23. DerDeziBelzeBub

    nice song, like it

  24. Amir Kelly

    that duznt look like a uke

  25. Emma Hokken

    I watched this vid for like 5 times
    I love this song! And her ofcourse..!

  26. rainintogravity

    I think it's a Lanikai? Because it's and acoustic-electric... There aren't very many makers of those I don't think? I don't know what model it is though. Sorry. Haha, I don't know anything about ukes, but I would like to get one here pretty soon. So the research is good.

  27. lonesomeanchor

    I love her.. very excellent live.. i remember when she was singing gravity I had trouble breathing.. she took my breath away..

  28. rainintogravity

    me too. where did you get it? [:

  29. quark

    the phone at 2:17 confused the crap out of me. I thought my computer was schizzin out.

  30. RachVR6

    The little lamp on her piano is the same one I have on my desk. :D hahaha

  31. Becky Krill

    Anyone know what brand and model uke that is?

  32. Becky Krill

    Not to answer for her or anything, but its from a Kelly Clarkson hit...Ya know..Since You Been Gone?

  33. Sbort

    okay! i tried posting my response again... hopefully this time it works. THANK YOU!! <3

    ps- obviously- sara forever ; )

  34. Jessica C

    Lol, think so? It's only 5mp and it's my canon. :D But it's an awesome model ... not sure where it is atm, but the zoom is 12 optical and 48 digiital. I took the videos mainly between 12 - 21 at the max.

  35. jerseygirl2484

    kkthebest - what does it mean?

  36. Jessica C

  37. usagicassidy
