Barry and Darren met in the summer of '99, discovering their mutual love of music and have been friends ever since. They started a band, which lasted six years before an indefinite hiatus was called.

Track Name: Set Her Free
It's the same old story: girl meets boy and they settle down far too young. She begins to resent him for stealing the height of her youth. You think it's a passing phase - that she'll grow out of it and settle into your boring routine - but life is for living, and living with you she may as well not be alive.

Set her free
She's only going to break your heart

She's out with her friends tonight. She spent hours on her outfit and perfecting her makeup, but you don't notice her; you're too busy playing XBox and lighting up another joint. She'll forget about you when a guy dances over and places his hands on her waist. She won't push him away 'cause she's a little bit excited and she hasn't felt like that in a while.

Set her free
She's only going to break your heart

She enjoys the attention. Before you know it, she's in someone else's bed. And you know you won't fight for her. Before you know it, she has someone else in her head. Love is no reason to stay together, it's just an excuse for you not to break up. Excitement fades, but it never needs to disappear.
