Long before
I breathed the air that smelt of trees
Long before
I could see a sky above me
I've been trapped there so long
I don't recall the colour of the sea
I have not a companion
But the drops that are fallin' all over me
Since I was left down there
I want to know the one
Who keeps the key of my chains
Since I was left down there
I haven't seen a ray of sun
Breaking through my cage
Ooooh ooooh please, set me free
Ooooh ooooh please, set me free
I don't mind who will take care of me
All I want is to break free
Runnin' away
I don't know the place where I will live
But I want just to feel free
Be free again
Ooooh ooooh please, set me free
Ooooh ooooh please, set me free
Ooooh ooooh please, set me free
