Jefferson Airplane – Freedom lyrics

(by G. Slick)

Oh I know they say someday time will show me
How to be so cool someday but what about right now
Please someone tell me what do I do while I'm waiting
Waiting to be so cool--someday

I know I'm not alone you know just how I feel
We both know the rules but who really knows
How to play this game?
No one will always win good losers hide the pain
They say everything's fine
No one will hear them complain

But behind those smiles, so much purple rain
It's a wonder anybody ever comes out sane but they do
And freedom it's all up to you
When you're by yourself you get that silent noise
Inside your mind all the party boys trying to fill up
All the empty holes don't let one be her soul

Freedom now you're on your own
Freedom or does it really mean you're just all alone
Freedom either way it's gonna take you home
It just takes you by the hand and says
Now it's time to grow

So my friend you're gonna be alright
Seems like it's all uphill
But then that's the only way to get high
Someday your soul is gonna fly
But don't look back 'cause that's a waste of time
And right now's the time for you to look inside
And you'll see love--love has never gone away

Freedom I've been standing still so long
Freedom I almost forgot you had a song
Freedom shine your light and let us begin
Just take me in our arms I wanna be free again
