Freedom - James Blunt

Let me show you my emotions
Tell you how I feel
Hear my simple notions
To me they're very real
Can't you see they've got it wrong
Set their morals high
But it all comes down to one simple fact
In the end we all die

So why can't we be free to do what we please
Oh be free, get up off our knees
Stop this facade, this silly game we play
We set these rules which we can't obey
It�s not real, this ain't how it should be
This can't be life if we must pay a fee
Break the chains and throw down the book
Give me a chance to give back what they took

Please take in what I tell you
Don't throw it away
For the wisdom of God
Is mine for today
You live every hour with a lover by your side
But when morning has come
You still have secrets to hide

So tell me what you're feeling
Let me touch your inner soul
The reason I'm here
Is to make you feel whole
So quit your inhibitions
The morals of this world
Forgot to think of one small point
I'm a boy and you're a girl

And we should be free to do what we please
Oh be free, get up off our knees
Stop this facade, this silly game we play
We set these rules which we can't obey
It's not real, this ain't how it should be
This can't be life if we must pay a fee
Break the chains and throw down the book
Give me a chance to give back what they took

I said what I had to say
Said what makes me tick
If you've listened to me thoroughly
Then you and I are quits
I may not have changed the way you think
But at least I've had a try
And I know that I'll have peace of mind
When I die
