I’m As Free As A Bird

Jim Adams, aka Newepicauthor, the creator of A Unique Title For Me, is hosting SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY and this week he has chosen the theme: Bird/Cat/Dog/Fish/Pet

Sea, Seagull, Bird, Seevogel, Water Bird

Sundays are often best started with the help of Emeli Sandé. She has a truly stunning voice that conveys a huge amount of emotion. This song caught my attention when I read the lyrics.

There is something wonderful about the thought of being as free as a bird! In a world with clouds on the horizon, many a time we may have thought, “Had I wings just as a dove has, I’d fly far off to reside, in a place safe from the wicked…” If you have never known any form of oppression or enslavery – you will know this feeling well!

I’ve been tearing down the walls
I’ve been kicking down the doors
I’ve been burning all the boxes
‘Cause I’m a slave to only truth
I’m as wild as a wolf
You can’t keep me from the mountains

I’m replacing all my demons
For the sweetest songs of freedom
Last night I had a dream that I could fly

Now, baby, I, I’m free as a bird
I’m free as a bird
Baby, I, I don’t know if you’ve heard
I don’t know if you’ve heard
But I taught my heart to sing
And I found me a pair of wings
Now, baby, I, I’m free as a bird
I’m free as a bird

I’ve been flying through the trees
I’ve been dancing on the breeze
I kiss the sun now every morning
I’ve been shaking off the chains
I’ve been giving up the games
I’ve been answering my calling

And as soon as I surrendered
The light began to enter
Last night I had a dream that I could fly

Now, baby, I, I’m free as a bird
I’m free as a bird
Baby, I, I don’t know if you’ve heard
I don’t know if you’ve heard
But I taught my heart to sing
And I found me a pair of wings
Now, baby, I, I’m free as a bird
I’m free as a bird

Now, baby, I, I’m free as a bird
I’m free as a bird
Oh I, I don’t know if you’ve heard
I don’t know if you’ve heard
But I taught my heart to sing
And I gave me a pair of wings
Now, baby, I, I’m free as a bird
