Big Country - Freedom Song Lyrics




At night when I lay sleeping
You stole the breath from me
And I dreamed a hundred thousand dreams
And none of them was real

For history will find us
If you bring the world to me
While all we know is all that’s been
And none of what may be

Let them sing a freedom song
If only for a day
Everybody loves a freedom song
For how long

When people rise above themselves
To find that waiting mends
Then all the walls come tumbling down
And things begin to end

Then guide us to the wilderness
My enemy and me
With time and you against me too
The hour draws ever near

Let them sing a freedom song
If only for a day
Everybody loves a freedom song

Let them sing a freedom song
If only for a day
Everybody loves a freedom song
For how long

Let them sing a freedom song
If only for a day
Everybody loves a freedom song

Let them sing a freedom song
If only for a day
Everybody loves a freedom song
For how long

  1. Sally A. Schwartz

    Once was told by a Scot in Scotland, " We Scots love you American's because you are rebels and we Scots like Rebels."  I will always stand on defending our Constitution and defending its Freedom on which it was founded. I guess I am just a Republican Reptile. LOL :D

  2. Mark ONeill

    Celts love a freedom song. Democrats love fascist songs.

    great contributions, Paul!
    I take it you're from 1969? Got you beat by one year! ;-)
    Growing up with BC was the best thing that could happen to me!
