Free


Words and Music By: Alan Green


Sung by David Jones



It seems like only yesterday…
I waved goodbye to my dad,
And I traveled so far away
I saw the world...I saw the lights.

I've played the pauper; and I've played the prince.
I played the fool in school, and I haven't stopped playing since.
I've done it all, from A to Z,
And I Wanna Be Free!

All my life is just a stage I'm going through.
The director has written lines for me and you,
And we must act accordingly.
All I know...We are the greatest story ever told,
And we'll never grown old
We just pan away and fade to white…

I got a job in a video band.
We had 'em eating cornflakes out of the palm our hands.
They said we couldn't sing.
They said we didn't play
But we were not free!

All our life is just a stage we're going through
The director has written lines for me and you,
And we must act accordingly,
All I know...We are the greatest story ever told,
And we never grown old
We just pan away and fade to light…

I've been the lover in so many scenes.
I play the part so well, but I'm still not sure what it means
'Cause the only time it makes any sense
Is when it's just you and me
Then I'm free...

I
