Michael, George - Freedom '90 Lyrics




I won't let you down
I will not give you up
Gotta have some faith in the sound
It's the one good thing that I've got
I won't let you down
So please don't give me up
‘Cause I would really, really love to stick around, oh yeah

Heaven knows I was just a young boy
Didn't know what I wanted to be
I was every little hungry schoolgirl's pride and joy
And I guess it was enough for me
To win the race? A prettier face!
Brand new clothes and a big fat place
On your rock and roll TV
But today the way I play the game is not the same
No way
Think I'm gonna get myself happy

I think there's something you should know
I think it's time I told you so
There's something deep inside of me
There's someone else I've got to be
Take back your picture in a frame
Take back your singing in the rain
I just hope you understand
Sometimes the clothes do not make the man

All we have to do now
Is take these lies and make them true somehow
All we have to see
Is that I don't belong to you
And you don't belong to me yea yea
Freedom
Freedom
Freedom
You've gotta give for what you take
Freedom
Freedom
Freedom
You've gotta give for what you take

Heaven knows we sure had some fun boy
What a kick just a buddy and me
We had every big shot good-time band on the run boy
We were living in a fantasy
We won the race
Got out of the place
I went back home got a brand new face
For the boys on MTV
But today the way I play the game has got to change
Oh yeah
Now I'm gonna get myself happy

I think there's something you should know
I think it's time I stopped the show
There's something deep inside of me
There's someone I forgot to be
Take back your picture in a frame
Don't think that I'll be back again
I just hope you understand
Sometimes the clothes do not make the man

All we have to do now
Is take these lies and make them true somehow
All we have to see
Is that I don't belong to you
And you don't belong to me, yea yea
Freedom
Freedom
Freedom
You've gotta give for what you take
Freedom
Freedom
Freedom
You've gotta give for what you take

Well it looks like the road to heaven
But it feels like the road to hell
When I knew which side my bread was buttered
I took the knife as well
Posing for another picture
Everybody's got to sell
But when you shake your ass
They notice fast
And some mistakes were built to last

That's what you get
That's what you get
That's what you get
I say that's what you get
That's what you get for changing your mind
That's what you get for changing your mind

That's what you get
That's what you get
And after all this time
I just hope you understand
Sometimes the clothes
Do not make the man

All we have to do now is take these lies
And make them true somehow
All we have to see is that i don't belong to you
And you don't belong to me yea yea
Freedom
Freedom
Freedom
You've got to give for what you take
Freedom
Freedom
Freedom
You've got to give for what you take
Yea you've got to give for what you, give for what you give

May not be what you want from me
Just the way it's got to be
Lose the face now
I've got to live I've got to live

    Lol, to think GM came up with the idea of this music video because he didn't wanna work for his label anymore. Genius!

  27. Kevin Coleman

    Beginning made me think I was listening to kids by mgmt

  28. beezer1225

    I saw George Michael's Faith tour and man I loved every minute of it.
    This song, though, no words can express how great it truly is.
    Not to mention how awesome the video is as well.

  29. cojemore Neviem

    2020?🤩

  30. Stacey Bennett

    True natural beauty on display, god I miss this. No surgeries or extreme enhancements that are popular now. ☹

    SwissMarksman

    Plus all these models still look super amazing today. I honestly can't think that any of todays "supermodels" would look good in the future.

    Cody Price

    ok boomer

  34. Azul Púrpura

    La canción épica de todo Real-fashionista.

  35. Ivyissy

    Classy, Catchy &​ Stylish MV. Not mention all these legendary supermodels in late 80s -​90s when supermodels rules the world and became mainstream icons for their fashion, lifestyles. All of these supermodel has their own unique beauty &​ charisma which hard to be seen after 90s. And even after 90s there were many new faces whose got attention from medias but their popularity &​ charisma could not beat these group of supermodel.

    Actually except Linda, Christy, Cindy, Naomi, Tatja who appears in this MV there remain some supermodels from the same group whose not appear on MV such as Helena Christiansen, Elle Mcpherson, Stephany seymoore etc.

  36. Habeebah Abdulakeem

  40. Donald Sunny

    R.I.P. George Michael and thank you for saving me with your uplifting music, it gave me FAITH at a time when I had lost it.

  41. Jeffrey Sykes

    Yeah yeah! Free-dom!

  42. Kristin Schermann

    This has got to be one of (if not THE) most gorgeous videos EVER... and I am not talking about the models, I mean the directing, photography, set design, etc... BEAUTIFUL!! Anyone else think so?

  43. Marsha Lois Camille Philpotts

    Zachary Quinto's Lip Sync Battle bought me to this video and all the models were so beautiful, gorgeous and sexy in this video and George Michael was so good and we all miss him.

  44. scott never

    George Micheal was a legend in my eyes, didn't want to miss an oppunity to say that. too little too late may well be the lesson.

  45. Donald Sunny

    1990 "This song sounds good"
    2020 "This song sounds good"
    2190 from the Mars space station "This song sounds good"

  46. Artem Morozov

    Mmm...Linda Evangelista...from my hometown St. Catharines, Ont.

  76. Rick Honkomp

    This song helped me to connect with my Autistic son...I couldnt connect with him on any conversation and then suddenly he heard this song on the radio and wanted to know how to sing it...from then on we talked to each other and I would sing songs to him in my van and he would sing with me...Thank you George Micheal for helping me meet my son for the first time

    Rick Honkomp

    @ToxicStarlightthank you.. you seem like a compassionate woman that I appreciate comments from

    Rick Honkomp

    @Jamie Starr thank you...he is now 32 and is a wonderful young man and we are very close as father and son

    beezer1225

    @Rick Honkomp
    Don't listen to that guy. He saw that this is a positive, if not loving, thread and he had to hate.
    Trolls will be trolls.
    Nothing anyone says that is negative will change the relationship between you and your son.
    Stay awesome, man.

    Rick Honkomp

    @Rick Honkomp I looked at your name and wondered if this is FiFi from Heritage Park...If so Pleeeeeese let me know

    Pamela antiALAMBRINI

    Your son feels the FREEDOM
