Grace Jones – Don't Cry Freedom lyrics

How long before we see we have broken those chains,
.[?]... Just like the bird that sings it in the dream baby we are born free,
Oh now, I wan't you to know now we are in charge of our own destiny,
Freedom is only but a state of mind, you've got to leave them shackles behind.

Don't you cry freedom, exercise your freedom,
Don't cry freedom, exercise your freedom,
Don't cry freedom, it's a state of mind,
Oh.. Ooooh.. Cry.. Don't cry, don't cry... Well well, well.

Freedom is only but a state of mind, you've got to leave them shackles behind.
Yeah, yeah,
Some of us get to dance on a dream,
Every day we pray to that which we cannot see,
Why is it so, so difficult to love that which we see?
Love for you and me.

Tell me now, do you like what you see?
Are those images forced upon us, reflections of you and me,
Don't you let them play upon your mind, you've got to leave them shackles behind.

.[?]. I wan't you to know that, we are each other our own destiny,
Just like the bird that sings within the dreams, baby you are born free,
Oh yeah, every night oh now,
Don't you cry freedom, freedom, don't cry, don't cry oh now, freedom,
Don't you cry freedom, exercise your freedom it's a state of.., don't cry freedom,
Just like the bird that sings within the dream baby you are born free.
