Derek Trucks Band, The - I Wish I Knew (How It Would Feel To Be Free) Lyrics

I wish I knew how it would feel to be free
Wish I could break the all the chains holding me
I wish I could say everything I have to say
Say it loud, say it 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 that keep us apart
I wish you knew how it would feel to be me
Then you'd see and agree, everyone should be free

I wish I could give all I'm longing to give
I wish I could live like I'm longing to live
I wish I could do everything that I should do
Though I'm way over due, I'd be starting anew

I wish I could be like a bird in the sky
How sweet it would be if I found I could fly
I'd soar to the sun and look down at the sea
And I'd sing, 'cause I know everyone should be free
