Freedom Lyrics

“Freedom”
By the Freedom Singers (young girls imprisoned in a youth detention center)

Why do we make
the choices that we make
why do we do
the things we do
Why is it so hard
To get a second chance
In this life one should live
To sing and dance

Chorus:
In this world of freedom


When I get out of here
I’m gonna go to school
When I get out of here
I aint no fool
When I get out of here
Aint coming back no more
Hold my head high
You and I
Straight out the door

Chorus:
In this world of freedom

Since I was young
At an early age
No one seemed to care
What I had to say
If they only knew
What we’ve been through
They would say
Oh my god
What can I do

Chorus:
In this world of freedom






My greatest fear
To not go home
To be stuck here
To be left alone
To be raped
By prison guards
When looking back
On the past
Life’s been hard

Chorus:
In this world of freedom

Because I’m a kid
They feel I don’t know
Right from wrong
But I know so
It takes more than one
 To prove someone wrong
At least two sides
And this is mine
In this song
