I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel To Be Free

Original and similar lyrics
And I wish I knew how It would feel to be free I wish that I could break All the chains holding me I wish I could say All the things that I'd like to say Say 'em loud say 'em clear For the whole round world to hear I wish I could share All the love that's in my heart Remove every doubt that keeps us apart And I wish you could know What it means to be me Then you'd see and agree Every man should be free I wish I could live Like I'm longin' to live I wish I could give What I'm longin' to give And I wish I could do All the things I'd like to do You know they still are quite a few Yes Sir... And I'm way way over due I wish I could be like a bird up in the sky How sweet it would be If I found out I could fly So long to the sun And look down upon Ihe sea And I sing because I know how it feels to be And I sing because I know how it feels to be And I sing because I know how it feels to be free Yeah

Wilderness

C.W. McCall "The Real McCall: An American Storyteller"
(C.W. McCall, Bill Fries, Chip Davis) From the album Wilderness Come along and sing A song you knew before Come along and sing Once more Come along and live A life you knew before Come along and live Once more [C.W. and backup singers] Wake with me and feel the misty blue dawn Come hear the wild bird sing her mornin' song See the sun that only wilderness sees Then walk with me and let your heart run free Come on along and chase the wind once more Come on along and try one more time Come on along and find the trail once more Come on along and live again [C.W. and backup singers] Come with me and see the ridge run wild Come hear the canyon call her wanderin' child Breathe the air that only wilderness breathes Then walk with me and let your heart run free [Musical interlude. Slow banjo pickin' and violins.] Come on along and climb the mountain once more Come on along and try one more time Come on along and cross the river with me Come on along and live again [C.W. and backup singers] Come with me and hear the night bird cry And see the starlight fill the wonderous sky Feel the joy that only wilderness feels Come on along along and we'll be free Fly with me and find the end of time Run with me and feel the wilderness high Come on along and live forever with me Come on along along and we'll be free

I Want Out

Hammerfall
From our lives' beginning on We are pushed in little forms No one asks us how we like to be In school they teach you what to think But everyone says different things But they're all convinced that They're the ones to see So they keep talking and they never stop And at a certain point you give it up So the only thing that's left to think is this I want out--to live my life alone I want out--leave me be I want out--to do things on my own I want out--to live my life and to be free People tell me A and B They tell me how I have to see Things that I have seen already clear So they push me then from side to side They're pushing me from black to white They're pushing 'til there's nothing more to hear But don't push me to the maximum Shut your mouth and take it home 'Cause I decide the way things gonna be I want out--to live my life alone I want out--leave me be I want out--to do things on my own I want out--to live my life and to be free There's a million ways to see the things in life A million ways to be the fool In the end of it, none of us is right Sometimes we need to be alone (Solo: Kai/Both) No no no, leave me alone I want out--to live my life alone I want out--leave me be I want out--to do things on my own I want out--to live my life and to be free

Live In A Tree

Adrian Belew "Op Zop Too Wah"
Your mama is crazy and your daddy's evasive and they probably won't leave you alone between the neighborhood screaming and the laundry and the t.v. you can hardly hear the cellular phone you feel stress, you need a rest too many things you've got to get off your chest to be free to get some peace you have to live in a tree You gave away your stereo and kept your pocket radio and threw away the keys to your car then you loaded up a T-shirt booked a ticket on a steamer and you boarded it for Zanzibar you had stress, you needed rest too many things you had to get off your chest to be free to get some peace you had to live in a tree Live In A Tree Friday May 3, 1996

Since You've Been Gone

AMINA BUDDAFLY "I Am, Pt. 2"
[Peter Gunz:] Get it on or get get gone Can't take the fighting shit that you be on I'm with a virgo cause a pieces scorn And I guess an aries don't mix with a Capricorn Back in the days we were two peas in a pod Crips and bloods we're two G's in a knot? I miss you at the crib, I miss you in the sack I'm saying I'm out but I promise that I'll be back I'm gone [Amina:] Lately I've been thinking Been kind of low, weak and I haven't had much fun in quite some time I don't know how it started I used to love to party But now it seems I'm done since you left all I want is To lay in my bed and be depressed watching TV And it wont get any easier I try to forget (say what) And get rid of the things that remind me of our song [Chorus] Since you've been gone (gone) I've been a wreck, such a hopeless one Won't you come back so I can live on (live on) And on (and on) No one can make me better boy since you've been gone [Peter Gunz:] I'll be gone til November, gone til November I'm lying again girl I'll be gone til December Flying again, girl I'll be gone you remember And if you wanna cheat I'll creep back in September Tell me have you seen her, tell me have you seen her In spite of her name ain't nothing small about Amina In spite of the game ain't nothing small about peter You can ask the diva, she's seen it, she's a believer I'm gone [Amina:] They say loves overrated And you should never chase it But its been setting me off, I cant even get a call Thought I was perfect for you That I could convince you But it was not enough Now you left, and all I want is To lay in your arms and hear you say that you got me We're gunna make it through the ups and downs I try to forget and get rid of the things that remind me of our song [Chorus] Since you've been gone (been gone) I've been a wreck, such a hopeless one Won't you come back so I can live on (live on) And on No one can make me better boy since you've been gone [Peter Gunz:] Its big gunz on em 1 2 Chick break neck when I come through Backin like I got the back on me But I'm just a mack with a swag homie Snag your chick and let her snack on me And would you believe her wish list Got me spending cheese like its Christmas She figures that my figures are big as what Not giving a fuck, then put your middle fingers up [Amina:] Look at the stars Taking long walks through the park Hangout and chill by the bar That's all the things we've been doing Trying to get used to the new Been out on a date or two But ain't nothing I can do cause all I want is To lay in your arms and hear you say that you found me We're gunna make it through the ups and downs Give me your heart, cause all I can do is play the melody of our song [Chorus] Since you've been gone (been gone) I've been a wreck, such a hopeless one Won't you come back so I can live on (live on) And on (and on) No one can make me better boy since you've been gone

The Accident

David Byrne "Look Into The Eyeball"
When you see an accident do not turn your head and look away I can see detectives are sifting through the wreckage we have made It starts with only one kiss It changes everything TV crews arrive on the scene They say 'See the man who lost everything' He lies shattered like a glass on the ground They say 'Only you can bring him around And set me free' I became delirious Palm trees gently swaying in the breeze On a desert island, I haven't seen a human being for years The house where we used to live Described by witnesses TV crews arrive on the scene And the anchorman they break down and weep Living proof that things are not what they seem It takes all these wild and wonderful things - To set me free
