I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel To Be Free

I wish I knew how
It would feel to be free.
I wish I could break
All the chains holding me.
I wish I could say
All the things that I should say,
Say em loud say em clear,
For the whole round world to hear.

I wish I could share
All the love thats in my heart,
Remove all the bars
That keep us apart.
I wish you could know
What it means to be me,
Then youd see and agree
That every man should be free.

I wish I could give
All Im longin to give.
I wish I could live
Like Im longin to live.
I wish I could do
All the things that I can do.
And though Im way over-due,
Id be starting anew.

Well I wish I could be
Like a bird in the sky.
How sweet it would be
If I found I could fly.
Oh Id soar to the Sun
And look down at the sea.
Then Id sing cos I know yea,
Then Id sing cos I know yea,
Then Id sing cos I know
Id know how it feels.
Oh I know how it feels to be free.
Yea Yea!
Oh, I know how it feels
Yes I know,
Oh, I know,
How it feels,
How it feels,
To be free!
