Melissa Ferrick – Freedom lyrics

Sadness finds it's way onto me
Yeah on any given day
And I just end up feeling guilty
And I don't know how many times I've told you
I do not know how I ended up this way
It's as if sometimes I have just halted
Yeah I stop dead in my tracks
Life it just seems to cover me
And it's in these moments that I feel trapped

So I claim freedom
Yeah I claim my freedom

So what is it exactly that you want from me
Oh yeah you want me to stay
Even though I am terrified
To let myself
End up this way
Yeah I'm afraid of feeling
Of feeling nothing at all
And I'm afraid of settling down
Into a love
Just ain't love at all

So I claim my freedom
Yeah I claim I claim freedom

So take this brain out and hang it on the line
Take this chair out back and burn it
'Cause I can't get any work done from in here
You know this hole I dug myself in
Has got me buried up to helpless

And I'd like to call you a liar
Yeah but that's what you
Isn't that what you always called me
Yeah I'd like to call you a liar liar
Yeah but that's what you
That's what you always called me

So I claim freedom
Yeah claim I claim freedom
Freedom freedom
