Paula Cole – Free lyrics

I keep walking down the same city streets
The same city lines, to the same lonely beat
People say hello but I don't know what to say
I don't know how I feel, I just can't act that way
I wanna hide form all these strangers
I wanna run home to you
All I need is your compassion
Then we can be free, yes
I wanna be free, yes
I wanna be free
I wanna be free
Oh the way I'm shut out by your silence
It's the loudest thing I've ever known
You leave me, leave me hanging
'til I feel useless with my hope
Oh it's lonely in the city
It can be lonely next to you
Just have the courage to open up to yourself
Then we can be free, yes
I wanna be free
I wanna be free
I wanna be free
