MAN (SPOKEN):
Oh, we're late, late, late
We have twenty, maximum twenty-two minutes for your royal fitting
And then it's move, move, move to your speech at the Historical Society
After that we have to rush, and I mean rush to the Horticultural Society Tea
And then there's your Math lesson, your Geography lessons, your Science lessons


Anneliese:
All my life I've always wanted
To have one day just for me
Nothing to do and for once nowhere I need to be
With no lessons, lords, or lunches
Or to-do list in the way
No one to say when to eat or read or leave or stay
That would be the day

Erika:
All my life I've always wanted
To have one day for myself
Not waking up with a pile of work on every shelf
With no hems in need of pressing
And no sleeves in disarray
No wedding gown with a thousand stitches to crochet
And no debt to pay

Erika:
What would it be like to be

Princess anneliese:
What would it be like to be

Erika:
Free

Princess anneliese:
Free

Free to try crazy things

Erika:
Free from endless iou's

Anneliese:
Free to fly

Erika:
Free to sing

Anneliese:
And marry whom I choose

Anneliese:
You would think that I'm so lucky
That I have so many things
I'm realizing that every present comes with strings

Erika:
Though I know I have so little
My determination's strong
People will gather around the world to hear my song

Woman:
Can I come along?

Anneliese:
Now I fear I'll never be

Erika:
Soon I will forever be

Both:
Free

I close my eyes and feel myself fly a thousand miles away
I could take flight but would it be right
My conscience tells me stay

Anneliese:
I'll remain forever royal

Erika:
I'll repay my parent's debt

Both:
Duty means doing the things your heart may well regret

Anneliese:
But I'll never stop believing

Erika:
She can never stop my schemes

Both:
There's more to living than gloves and gowns and threads and seams
In my dreams
I'll be free

    Means that even you don't want to do your duties, you still do them because its the right thing to do and you don't want to dissapoint others. You also have the right to just quit, but you keep on going. Just like ericka didn't have to work but she knows she has to so she can repay her parent's dept. Just like annnelise has to do her royal duties but she can quit if she wants to but doesn't. Its a story of two girls who dare to dream and at the end, get exactly what they want.

    Though, I am a guy, this song had been that astounding to have caught my attention. It meant to me living how one should be. Living life isn't only about finishing things and stuff. It's about doing things at your best - doing everything while aiming excellence in one's pursuit. Free - one word capable of changing the world. Soar high. Give it your all. No doubt, god would do his best, as he has always been, to give you what you actually deserve. ^_^.

    I love this song. I remember being little and singing it with my best friend. She had blond hair, and I have brown hair, so we would always act it out. I had a ton of fun with this song. Even now that I'm in high school, this song can still relate to my life. Just wanting to get away, and that feeling that you may never be free, it is expressed really well in this song. I've always loved wings from the swan lake movie, too.
