Freedom - Ashanti

So I?m gon? close my eyes and I?m gon? live my life
Despite what you think, Im gon? be free, I?m gon? be me
So I?m gon? close my eyes and I?m gon? live my life
Despite what you think, Im gon? be free, I?m gon? be me

See I aint ever think that I would have a situation where the people around me just envy I must replace ?em
See I always thought the people that watched me grow wouldn?t wan? see me blow for sho but little did I know
They aint never really wanna see me smiling, they couldn?t take the fact that I was really shining
And in my heart I know they wishing I would stop coz they don?t want me the rising and be on top

And all that jealousy and hate, could be right in front of your face,
And it?s gon? hurt for you to see, but it aint your fault just let it be
So I?m gon? close my eyes, and I?m gon? live my life
Despite what you think, I?m gon? be free, because I?m gon? be me
So I?m gon? close my eyes, and I?m gon? live my life
Despite what you think, I?m gon? be free, because I?m gon? be me

See everybody wanna have something to talk about, so they pointing they fingers and always runnin they mouths
No matter how you try to satisfy someone else, giving so much of yourself jump off but it?s never enough
Boy you give them all they want and they aint happy and they don?t say I like what you do to make ?em happy
They don?t appreciate it until you walk away, but chu don?t wanna hear it by now it?s too late

And all that jealousy and hate, could be right in front of your face,
And it?s gon? hurt for you to see, but it aint your fault just let it be
So I?m gon? close my eyes, and I?m gon? live my life
Despite what you think, I?m gon? be free, because I?m gon? be me, yeah
So I?m gon? close my eyes, and I?m gon? live my life
Despite what you think, I?m gon? be free, because I?m gon? be me

What they don?t understand is that Ima keep living my life and surviving and Ima keep pushing and striving and climbing and grounding
Coz there aint no time to be cryin, I?m vilified and with it straight to carry my way
And Ima be ok, Ima be ok, coz Im gon live my life my way
And you can say what chu wanna say, it wont effect the way Im livin
Im winnin by bein free again, yeah

So I?m gon? close my eyes, and I?m gon? live my life
Despite what you think, I?m gon? be free, because I?m gon? be me, yeah
So I?m gon? close my eyes, and I?m gon? live my life
Despite what you think, I?m gon? be free, because I?m gon? be me
Yeah yeah, coz it?s my life, my life, my life, my life, my life, yeah
