I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel To Be Free – Nina Simone

It would feel to be free
I wish that I could break
All the chains holding me
I wish I could say
All the things that I’d should say
Say ’em loud say ’em clear
For the whole round world to hear
I wish I could share
All the love that’s in my heart
Remove all the bars
It keeps us apart
I wish you could know
What it means to be me
Then you’d see and agree
That every man should be free

I wish I could give
All I’m longin’ to give
I wish I could live
Like I’m longin’ to live
I wish I could do
All the things that I can do do
And though I’m way over due
I’d be starting a new

Well I wish I could be
Like a bird in the sky
How sweet it would be
If I found out I could fly
And I’d sore to the sun
