Lyrics

Sat on and stepped on, ignored and forgotten,
Bound up and tied down and sad and begotten,
Kicking the beat and I’m gonna be heard.
Open the door and step out in the world.
I’m free. Yes, I’m free.
I’m free… I’m…
Facing the fear that exists in my head:
Anxiety, tension and worry and dread.
Beating the fear and I’m saying my words.
Taking the right to speak up in the world.
I’m free. Yes, I’m free, yeah. Yes, I’m free.
I’m free… I’m free… So free.
Stepping outside of the box to the beat,
Feeling the power, beneath my feet.
Out of my way, I’m coming through.
Use it or lose it; it’s time to choose.
I’m free… I’m free… I’m free… So free!
Ooh. Ooh. Ooh.
Moving ahead and I’m making some tracks.
Take a deep breath with the wind at my back.
Feeling the courage to stand on my ground,
Planting my feet and then looking around,
No bounds
I’m free. Yes, I’m free, yeah. Yes, I’m free.
Yeah I am free. Yes, I am free, yeah.
I’m free, oh yeah.
I’m free… I’m free… So free.
I’m free… I’m free… I’m free… So free.
