Free

Album: Conscious (2016)
  • I'd lose everything so I can sing
    Hallelujah, I'm free
    (I'm free, I'm free)

    I have lived my life so perfectly
    Kept to all my lines so carefully
    I'd lose everything so I can sing
    Hallelujah, I'm free
    I'm free, I'm free
    I'm free, I'm free, I'm free
    Hallelujah, I'm free

    Gritting your teeth, you hold onto me
    It's never enough, I'm never complete
    Tell me to prove, expect me to lose
    I push it away, I'm trying to move
    Hoping for more, and wishing for less
    When I didn't care was when I did best
    I'm desperate to run, I'm desperate to leave
    If I lose it all, at least I'll be free

    All I want is your attention please
    Don't want your opinion or your fee
    'Cause the freest I have ever been
    I had nothing to show or be seen
    I'm free, I'm free
    I'm free, I'm free

    Gritting your teeth, you hold onto me
    It's never enough, I'm never complete
    Tell me to prove, expect me to lose
    I push it away, I'm trying to move
    Hoping for more, and wishing for less
    I didn't care was when I did best
    I'm desperate to run, I'm desperate to leave
    If I lose it all, at least I'll be free
    Gritting your teeth, you hold onto me
    It's never enough, I'm never complete
    Tell me to prove, expect me to lose
    I push it away, I'm trying to move
    Hoping for more, and wishing for less
    I didn't care was when I did best
    I'm desperate to run, I'm desperate to leave
    If I lose it all, at least I'll be free

    It's clear you think that I'm inferior
    Whatever helps you sleep at night
    Whatever helps you keep it tight

    It's clear you think that I'm inferior
    Whatever helps you sleep at night
    Whatever helps you keep it tight

    Gritting your teeth, you hold onto me
    It's never enough, I'm never complete
    Tell me to prove, expect me to lose
    I push it away, I'm trying to move
    Hoping for more, and wishing for less
    When I didn't care was when I did best
    I'm desperate to run, I'm desperate to leave
    If I lose it all, at least I'll be free
    Gritting your teeth, you hold onto me
    It's never enough, I'm never complete
    Tell me to prove, expect me to lose
    I push it away, I'm trying to move
    Hoping for more, and wishing for less
    I didn't care was when I did best
    I'm desperate to run, I'm desperate to leave
    If I lose it all, at least I'll be free
