Carey, Mariah - I Am Free Lyrics




Once I was a prisoner
Lost inside myself
With the world surrounding me
Wandering througgh the misery
But now I am free...

You gave me a breath of life
Unclouded my eyes
With a sweet serenity
Lighting a ray of hope for me...
And now I am free...

[Chorus:]
Free to live
Free to laugh
Free to soar
Free to shine
Free to give
Free to love
Free enough to fly

Once I was all so alone
Unsteady and cold
But your love rained down upon me
Washing away uncertainty

But now
I am free

    I am free... of credit card debt, finally!

  6. Las Keimas

    2:35 is what are you looking for.

  7. Fazrul Yusof

    I can cry listening to her singing even the word "washing" at 2:19. I am serious. She is a musical goddess and always will be.

  8. Aquamarine Dolls

    Such a beautiful song! Haven't heard this in forever!

  9. Adiasdad

    My Autobiography in a song!!!

  10. Disney stuff

    I’m sat here two bottle of wine down listening to Mariah with my best mate crying our eyes out. Luv u mimi always & forever

  11. donna hookem

    Good 😆, be proud of yourself!

  12. gmanwolf359

    I want this to be the confession of my soul while I’m alive! No longer a prisoner, unsteady and cold.

  13. Lyoko Wolt

    I still wonder how she was able to write this song while she was still prisoner from "the evil". Such beautiful song ❤

  14. TinyMaths

    This might just be my favourite of all her albums. Although I have favourites on other albums, so many of the songs on this particular album kill me to the core.

  15. Al Ong

    Oct 2019? 😍

  16. Random Person

    Imagine how legendary this would have been if she had released this during the butterfly era

  17. Renato Lobato

    Once I was a prisoner
    Lost inside myself
    With the world surrounding me
    Wandering through the misery
    But now I am free
    You gave me a breath of life
    Unclouded my eyes
    With sweet serenity
    Lighting a ray of hope for me
    And now I am free
    Free to live
    Free to laugh
    Free to soar
    Free to shine
    Free to give
    Free to love
    Free enough to fly
    Once I was all so alone
    Unsteady and cold
    But your love rained down upon me
    Washing away uncertainty
    But now
    I am
    Now, oh, now
    Now
    I am free, I am free

    [Verse 1]
    Once, I was a prisoner
    Lost inside myself
    With the world surrounding me
    Wandering through the misery
    But now I am free

    [Verse 2]
    You gave me a breath of life
    Unclouded my eyes
    With a sweet serenity
    Lighting a ray of hope for me
    And now I am free

    [Chorus]
    Free to live
    Free to laugh
    Free to soar
    Free to shine
    Free to give
    Free to love
    Free enough to fly

    [Bridge]
    Once, I was all so alone
    Unsteady and cold
    But your love rained down upon me
    Washing away uncertainty, yeah, yeah

    Mariah Carey- I Am Free:

  45. tremaine861

    Such conviction!! God-given talent Ms Mariah 'Icon' Carey

  46. crislyn Cruz

    I am fascinated with her vocals. But can we just appreciate their songwritting? Mariah and Walter were the best underrated songwritters.. Max Martin couldn't.... and the arrangement of the song was so very creative and unique, it broke the verse-chorus-verse-chorus-brigde-chorus song formula. Mariah's musicianship was beyond any other artist and I couldn't think of any artist in the entire music industry that can compete with Mariah's level of musicianship, creativity and uniqueness. TRULY A LEGEND. ❤

    a nono

    Jp Cruz this is everything i wanted to say lol thank you. she really is a musical genius

  47. Mihaela

    lovely piano, she sings so well but it feels like she suffered from clinical depression when she did this album it is a whole feel to it like help me out I am tired, heartbroken and I am fighting it, I hope she is no longer there for her sake

  48. Blahberry83

    I always remember how I rewinded from 1:56 on and Especially the way she sings ”unsteady” dropped my tiny jaw as a kid every time. Just amazing...

  49. Just Tester_99

    This belongs in a movie. I know people get tired of her over using the whistle, but this could have used one somewhere even in the background.

  50. Po prostu Dawid

    Piece of art... This album is do beautiful and magical. I listen to IT everyday and I still feel like it's the fort time. I love it 🖤 Her best album and one of the best song

  51. OCTAVIO PEREZ

    2019 😍😍❤️

  52. Aldo's Reaction

    1:11 Serenity it yyyy

  53. iron mind

    The essence of a musically spiritual work of art

  54. Damian

    I wish she performed this song live

  55. Barba Ruiva

    Uma das que mais amo da Mariah :)❤❤❤

  56. Vera Krimer

    This is pure perfection.
    Her voice, her beauty, music and lyrics.

  57. Eddy Eddy

    How can human make and write beautiful song like this. The melodies, vocal runs, and beautiful lyrics. OMG

  58. high high

    I MISS THE 90'S ERA IT WAS SO REAL AND SINCERE. WE HAVE EVERYTHING NOW BUT WE LOST THE MEANING OF LIFE AND HONESTY

  59. dause lee

    Best vocal of all time🥰🥰

  60. John Wage

    2019 anyone?? 😘✌️✨

  61. PEDOreo

    I hear some resemblance of this song in can't take that away.

  62. Hay Sim

    Mariah Carey is my favourite singer. I just wish that I could see Mariah singing the entire songs on Day Dream. One of the things that I missed out on being born in the 90s is Mariah's prime time. My 3 favourite songs on the album are: Melt Away, I am free & when I saw you.

  63. ani t

    it baffles me how a song like this was written

  64. Rob’s Username

    2019! Sound off!

  65. MissNessy 28

    My GOD I Thank you each and everyday. I have come through this deep dark depression. This song is a blessing

  66. Star J

    Absolutely stunning beautiful beautiful voice beautiful lyrics! I love this woman and her talent the lord blessed her🥰🌹🙏🏼😍

  67. David Powell

    One of my many fav MC.. tune 🎶🎶🎶🔊🔊🔊🔊

  68. CyprusHot

    Her voice is just unmatchable. Free, easy control with singing a massively difficult song. Pitch, tone and melodies are all on point and precise.

  69. cydrofloxacin

    ONCE... I... WAS SO ALL ALOOOOOONE
    UUUUN.. STEEEEAAAAADYYY AND COLD
    BUT YOUR LOVE! RAINED DOWN
    UPON MEEE-E-E-E-EEEE

  73. John Java

    🌈❤️🌈❤️🌈

  74. Pete Mack

    1:46 'free enough to FLYLYLYLYLYYYYYLYLLLYYYYYYY'

    This line (her singing and the music arrangement) literally gives you the image of a bird flying slowly from the ground to the sky to reach its freedom

    Po prostu Dawid

    Yes, and then Buterfly came out

    William Henderson

    @Po prostu Dawid still listening in 2019 June?

    hugong3c

    @William Henderson you sound surprised. shame on you. this is Mariah Carey, the one and only.

  75. Caitlyn Muse

    This is my first time listenin to this album and I like it. But in my opinion the "Emotions" and "Mariah Carey" albums are better

  76. tremaine861

    Anybody else get emo when this comes on?

  77. Billy Larkin

    This was one of the songs that kept me from suicide as a kid

    RiRi Sunshine

    Great Daddy God used her to bring forth that true message.

    elianderson gomes

    I'm happy for your Life💙

    Le Cobra

    Billy Larkin 💖💖💖

    Gina77 PDP

    Thank you Lord for your life Billy!!
    You are precious for Him!!

  78. 전소영

    Just beautiful song😌Always crying when I listen to This song.

  79. rickma235

    The G.O.A.T!!!!!

  80. Damien Lopez

    I knew about this song before but I recently fell in love with it...I guess it touched a new place in my heart. Ugh I love her music so much and she’s inspired me so deeply. I am so thankful for what she has given us. Thank you Mariah ❤️ It’s gonna take some time but I definitely would like to cover this song. Beautiful. ❤️

  81. dandelion Kim

    mariah is an angel that God sent to earth

  82. MrLinneaux

    Let's face it: this Mariah won't be back ever. She got lost herself. One of the best female voices in industry faded out because of depression. Shame.

    Sarah S

    MrLinneaux No it’s because it’s of old age She still has a beautiful voice. But at daydream her voice was amazing

    a nono

    You very clearly have no idea what you’re talking about

  83. William Ludeña

    02:22 to 02:29 is ART

  84. AmaliaR8

    My love

  85. emcee gange

    emergerd! i'm just flying listening to this song!

  86. Sinan Ameer

    Great song and great artist

  87. Amen Learn Vasquez

    Dem riffs and runs she's right when she said she was inspired by the Clark Sisters, those belted runs are so Karen Clark Sheard influenced like what she did in Lead The Way.

  88. Coco Jade Lee

    I CAN HONESTLY SAY THAT AS A TRUE LAMB ...MARIAH TOOK US TO CHURCH WITH THIS BEAUTIFUL BALLAD

  89. André Mota

    This deserved a music video, it's just so beautiful😢

  90. matt tg

    Everytime I listen to this song I can't help myself from crying, it's such a beautiful song. It's also very special for me because it has helped me through difficult and sad times. The lyrics and the melody are just incredible. I love Mariah so much 💕

  91. Stephanie Lee

    1:57 to 2:28 just does something to my soul.... I rewind it over and over

    Nurse Jackie

    stephanie I am so in love with song. 1:57 and on just gives great comfort...

    D.E.E. DEE Eason

    I am here. 3.27.2019, with a full face of tears. It hits the core of all the pain and suffering I've endured and to know that I'm still here; that WE are still here... I can only give thanks. Thank you, Lord, for your grace. And thank you for sending us such a special gift to touch our souls with her words and with her voice.

    ztechlabs

    I used to listen to this track when I was a kid when it came out, back then I thought it was such a powerful song. And some +25 years later. I still feel exactly the same about this song.
    It has engraved itself into my ear drums.
    Everytime I hear it, I get goosebumps, can koam my hair with my hands 😂

  92. Lucie Horvathova

    No 1 can do transitions like she does it's ridiculously hard..

  93. Lorna Demedeiros

    Does anyone know where I can find the sheet music for this?

  94. MarCel Waugh

    Mariah+Gospel=Soul
    😇😇😇😇😇😀

  95. Amen Learn Vasquez

    Is this a gospel song mixed with ballads?

    Saya Beast

    Supposedly, Yes. A lot of Mariah Carey songs are portrayed as love songs, Like the iconic "Vision of Love", which herself said is not a love song. Considering Mariah was very dependent on God in this hard part of her life (1989-1997) I wouldn't be surprised if this is not a love song. She has done Gospel before, anyhow, Like "Make it Happen".

    Amen Learn Vasquez

    Saya Beast
    Anytime You Need A Friend and Fly Like A Bird are obviously gospel unlike Saving Grace and I Wish You Well. How deep Mariah can be?
