Freedom

sadness finds its way onto me
yeah on any given day
and I just end up feeling guilty
and I donít know how many times iíve told you
I do not know how I ended up this way
itís as if sometimes I have just halted
yeah I stop dead in my tacks
life it just seems to cover me
and itís in these moments that I feel trapped

so I claim freedom
yeah I claim my freedom

so what is it exactly that you want from me
oh yeah you want me to stay
even though I am terrified
to let myself
end up this way
yeah iím afraid of feeling
of feeling nothing at all
and iím afraid of settling down
into a love
that Ďaint love at all

so I claim my freedom
yeah I claim I claim freedom

so take this brain out and hang it on the line
take this chair out back and burn it
Ďcause I canít get any work done from in here
you know this hole i dug myself in
has got me buried up to helpless

and iíd like to call you a liar
yeah but thatís what you
isnít that what you always called me
yeah iíd like to call you a liar
liar
yeah but thatís what you
thatís what you always called me

so I claim freedom
yeah claim I claim freedom
freedom freedom
