Seems like everyday gets a little bit longer
Seems like yesterday, I was a little but stronger
But there ain't nothin', nothin' I can't do but to hold my ground
Try not to come unwound, don't wanna be let down
But it ain't easy, no it ain't easy
Doin' hard time for somebody else's crime

Hate is what got me here
Love, sweet love is gonna set me free
All the hatred in the world is what got me here today
But I know that love is gonna set me free

Man I've been away for so long now
I ain't seen no daylight for God knows how long now
I come out fightin' when I hear that bell ring, I always hear my name
But I'd love to feel that rain come down one more time
Wash away my pain, love like a hurricane

Hate is what got me here
Love, sweet love is gonna set me free
All the hatred in the world is what got me here today
But I know that love is gonna set me free

Gonna set me free, set me free
Gonna set me free, set me free
Set me free, gonna set me free
Set me free, oh, no no no, no no no no no

Ooh, hate is what got me here
Love, sweet love is gonna set me free
All the hatred in the world is what got me here today
But I know that love is gonna set me free

Hatred is what got me here today
But love, sweet love is gonna set me free
I ain't tryin' to appeal to just your mind
Just little part of your humanity, love will set you free
