Violent Femmes – I'm Free lyrics

I'm free and I'm happy
I am free from your hatred
I've parted from the part
That I participated in
So I'm free it was easy
I know nothing of your hatred
I've known and shone the light
And the darkness abated
So I'm free
Run skip jump play
My little boy is happy
Look he's smiling because
He knows no fear... Hear...
My mommy's calling me
And I'm running thru the fields
Because I'm free...
Every day in every way
I'm getting better and better and better
And better and better and better, etc
Because there's no fear... Here why
I can't tell you now cause
I'm runnin through the woods
And I just jumped a little bit higher...
Cause I'm free
And that's the way he created me to be
I have turned from your hatred
I turned on the light
And there was nothing there that waited to get me
This ain't a song about that this is a song about this
