If I could be free
that's all it would take.
I'd roam this Earth
to clear all of my mistakes.
If I could be free,
I'd flow like the wind.
I'd set sail on the water,
go to sleep, wake up
and start over again.
If I could be free I'd never leave home.
But I do realize
at this point
the word free is unknown.
