  • Looking into your eyes, I know I'm right
    If there's anything worth my love, it's worth a fight
    We only get one chance
    But nothing ties our hands
    You're what I want
    Listen to me
    Nothing I want's out of my reach

    (I'm free) Heaven helps the man who fights his fear
    Love's the only thing that keeps me here
    You're the reason that I'm hanging on
    My heart's staying where my heart belongs
    (I'm free)

    Running away will never make you free
    And nothing we sign is any kind of guarantee
    I wanna hold you now
    I won't hold you down

    Shaking the past, making my breaks
    Taking control
    That's what it takes

    (I'm free) Heaven helps the man who fights his fear
    Love's the only thing that keeps me here (I'm free)
    You're the reason that I'm hanging on
    My heart's staying where my heart belongs
    (I'm free)

    I wanna hold you now
    I won't hold you down
    You're what I want
    Listen to me
    Nothing I want's out of my reach

    (I'm free) Heaven helps the man who fights his fear
    Love's the only thing that keeps me here
    You're the reason that I'm hanging on
    My heart's staying where my heart belongs

    (I'm free) Heaven helps the man who fights his fear
    Love's the only thing that keeps me here
    You're the reason that I'm hanging on
    My heart's staying where my heart belongs

    (I'm free) Heaven helps the man who fights his fear
    Love's the only thing that keeps me here Writer/s: Dean Pitchford, Kenny Loggins

  • Esskayess from Dallas, TxThe only way to play this song is LOUD...as loud as your speakers/ears can handle. What a natural rush it provides.
  • Sara from Silver Spring, MdThis is the other top hit from Footloose the other being the title song. It is played as the kids ride on motorcycles knowing that they're free. The spoken chorus on this song is known as "The Screamers".
