I wish I knew how it would feel to be free
I wish I could break all the chains holding me
I wish I could say all the things that I should say
Say ’em loud say ’em clear for the whole round world to hear

I wish I could share all the love that is in my heart
Remove all the bars that still keep us apart
I wish you could know what it means to be me
Then you’d see and agree everyone should be free

I wish I could give all I’m longing to give
I wish I could live like I’m longing to live
I wish I could do all the things that I can do
Though I’m way overdue I’d be starting anew

Well I wish I could be like a bird in the sky
How sweet it would be if I found I could fly
I’d soar to the sun and look down at the sea
Then I’d sing cos I’d know

Yes I’d sing cos I’d know
Oh I’d sing cos I’d know
How it feels (how it feels) to be free
