Mae - Release Me Lyrics



I heard the old man say we need the rain
And I can feel it in my bones they're aching
I watched the sky and wait and wish these waters ease my pain
Because my will is breaking

If you'd get next to me and help me find simplicity
Then you could be the one to take me, to break me
And flood my soul

Could you be the one to release me?
Oh, release me
Waiting for your love
Oh, to free me, so release me

Grey clouds, they infiltrate as every move you make
Gets me closer to clarity
While droplet drummers lead a complex beat increasing speed
Somehow accompanies our intensities

At first this cloud burst is
Pulling us under
Lightning and thunder
Rain falls and you take me under
And flood my soul

Could you be the one to release me?
Oh, release me
Waiting for your love
Oh, to free me, so release me

So take off your shoes and stay a while
This might be the right time tonight
If it makes you feel good
Then it makes me feel alright

We should take down the curtains now
and make blankets here on the floor
The torrential downpour, the potential for more
A cease to fight this tension that ignites us here in the dark
'Cause tension causes friction and this friction leads to sparks
The rain has filled this cup and before it overflows
I wanna take you in now
Here it goes

Could you be the one to release me?
Oh, release me
Waiting for your love
Oh, to free me, so release me

Could you be the one to release me?
Oh, release me
We have just begun
You release me, oh, release me

    Release Me

    Mae

    I heard the old man say we need the rain
    and I can feel it in my bones, they're aching
    I'll watch the sky and wait and wish these waters ease my pain
    because my well is breaking

    if you'd get next to me and help me find simplicity
    then you could be the one to take me, to break me
    and flood my soul

    could you be the one to release me?
    oh, release me
    waiting for your love
    oh, to free me
    so, release me

    grey clouds they infiltrate
    as every move you make
    gets me closer to clarity
    while droplet drummers lead a complex beat increases speed
    somehow accompanies our intensities

    at first this cloud burst is pulling us under
    lightning and thunder
    rain falls and you take me under
    and flood my soul

    could you be the one to release me
    oh, release me
    waiting for your love
    oh, to free me
    so, release me

    so take of your shoes and stay awhile
    this might be the right time tonight
    if it makes you feel good
    then it makes me feel alright
    we should take down the curtains now
    and make blankets here on the floor
    a torrential downpour
    the potential for more
    cease to fight this tension that
    ignites us here in the dark
    cause tension causes friction
    and this friction leads to spark

    the rain has filled this cup
    and before it overflows
    I wanna take you in now
    here it goes

    could you be the one to release me
    oh, release me
    waiting for your love
    oh, to free me
    so, release me

    could you be the one to release me
    oh, release me
    we have just begun
    you release me
    so, release me

    I think it was on Mark Hoppus' podcast HMNIM I first ever heard of Mae... still listening in 2019.

  3. Rebeca Duran

  8. Mark Gerald Sarong

    what a great song. so artistic. unlike those mainstream crap nowadays...

    Edward Nguyen

    this song was acutally mainstream at the time

  9. Marcus Negron

    It's a shame they never really hit it big. But it's one of those bands that just has a special place in a lot of people's hearts. That's what really counts.

  10. Jennifer Dobbs

    I can't stop listening to this song.

  11. Dantallica

    I listen to everything from Slayer to the Eagles, and I don't understand why MAE never hit it big..... They're really talented songwriters and musicians... Do they just suck at promoting themselves? What a shame!

  12. Chantel T

    Melissa Milke brought me here <3

  13. quazziest

    I just want to cry cuz they are so good :')

  14. Dalton Ross

  15. Jessica Desmarais

    woah they are just great <3

  16. Rich Allen

    Play her Your Guardian Angel by The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus

  17. Dalton Ross

    I wish the girl I liked knew this song was about her:/

  18. KayLyda

    What in the world are they talking about it here, I don't mean to offend anyone but it sounds like a sexual encounter here especially during the bridge

  19. mary gomez

  21. Qadash .Gabar

  22. Azirill

    Mae, the undiscovered beauty, the best.

  23. Michael Russo

    Oh, and 4 people currently do not have any use for their emotions. Or their souls either, really.

  24. Michael Russo

    Always makes my day.

  25. Manny Marasigan

    this song is so ridiculously beatiful. 2:13-3:00 is my favorite.

  28. DemonFangGirl

    They're automatically awesome because Mae is my name XD

  29. Cyril Madamba

    It kinda feels sad and relaxing at the same time.

  30. miniCheed

    @BOYDisURboy It doesn't surprised me. Look at the "artists" nowadays. I don't want to mention Bieber and those crap, but...

  31. ginnychp1

    im glad my middle name is the name of this band... There so amazing :D :D

  32. jeric dondiego

    it melts my heart :(

  33. queenodein

    @ mccuner do you have evening? i really want to listen to it... youtube doesn't have the whole cd... :(

  34. TheMoonstone27

    @BurnCorpse i dont think that was what the guy was going for. search "release me mae acoustic" on youtube and watch the video by PunkVideoGuys

  35. Clarii Blubb

    excellent

  36. Vausee

    @DsaiTheWhite You're absoluetely right

  37. SpadesofDeath

    I've figured out why Mae isn't as famous as most artists: people truly don't know what real music is anymore, and just go for redundant beats, awful lyrics and constant cursing. This surely is music at its finest.

  38. rguki800

    mae i think is one of the most underrated band. I sometimes feel they should be bigger than what they are now, but then again i could be selfish thinking they shouldn't go mainstream.

  39. Chris Rivers

    magical lyrics & music! Great song

  40. Victoria Bell

    i loveee this song(:

  41. Bianca Angeles

    I saw Mae in SF last week, and they played this. :) Pure awesomeness.

  42. axebeast

    Best song off of this album. Only song I remember them playing live, so I have a feeling mae agrees with my sentiment. Anyway, this album obviously don't match up with The Everglow, but the band is growing.

    Their new album has some real soul. Check out Night/Day, The Fisherman Song, and.. my fav.. the new version of Embers and Envelopes

  43. James Arthur Pepito

    Love this song. :D =3

  44. Danny Robson

    this song made me happy :3

  45. flatts92

    The build up in this song is soooooo epic;; im like na na na na NA NANANANANANANANANANANANANANAN!!N!N!!N!N!NN! lol

  46. Sari sar

    makes me think about someone I met recently....

  47. O. Ziegemann

    LOVE that song!

  48. tomenaki

    Wow, beautiful song! A friend of mine sent me to this song. Great song.

  49. Kitteh Has Cake

    Godd, what's with all the thumbs down? It's their own opinion. They're entitled to it.

  50. Kitteh Has Cake

    YAY GOSSIP GIRL SOUNDTRACK!

  51. Claudia Barczy

    i love this song! i first heard it on Gossip Girl, and i thought it was cool. so i went on you tube to listen to it again, and now I'm in love with it!

  52. Dman761

    so are they like dead now?

    i heard they're labeless and aren't making another album, but they're gona do some environmental crap.

  53. Claire J

    I honestly don't like this song very much. I admit the lyrics are great, but it's definitely not a hit. The music keeps building up and I keep waiting for that awesome chorus, but then it just falls down slow again. It's not fast but it's not slow, it's at a medium that irks me. How would you dance to this? I want to dance to some parts if it were a bit more upbeat, but then it just slows down again. It doesn't have that "bam" "wow" factor.

  54. ihatemrbean

    i got chills when i first listened to this song. esp the way it builds up and climaxes when he sings "i wanna take you in now, here it goes."

    haha, in a very non sexual way of course. this song is amazing.

  55. Kaylyn Corbiell

    omg this song is awsome i can't stop listening to it!
