  • I'm no stranger to the thick smoke of a bar
    And heart chained to a bottle of whiskey
    And I've held strangers in my arms
    To pull apart the bars
    Because I couldn't find the key

    I've searched high and low
    Been to hell and back
    Been a prisoner to my soul
    And all I know is that
    The price of being free it don't come cheap

    That's why people fight for it, rise for it
    Burn up the night for it
    Cry for it, pine for it
    Cross rivers wide for it
    Once you've held the truth
    There's nothing you won't do
    And when I look into your eyes
    I know why people died for it

    Freedom loving you feels like freedom

    You're the red, the white, the blue
    The stars that cover the scars
    When we broke the shackles
    And I've never been to war before
    But your boots there on the floor
    Are proof that I've won the battle

    And all you had to give to me
    Was the gift of being free

    That's why people fight for it, rise for it
    Burn up the night for it
    Cry for it, pine for it
    Cross rivers wide for it
    Once you've held the truth
    There's nothing you won't do
    And when I look into your eyes
    I know why people died for it

    Freedom loving you feels like freedom

    I've searched high and low
    Been to hell and back
    Been a prisoner to my soul
    And all I know is that
    The price of being free it don't come cheap

    That's why people fight for it, rise for it
    Burn up the night for it
    Cry for it, pine for it
    Cross rivers wide for it
    Once you've held the truth
    There's nothing you won't do
    And when I look into your eyes
    I know why people died for it

    Freedom loving you feels like freedom
    Oh freedom loving you feels like freedom

    Freedom loving you feels like freedom
