Newton Faulkner - Get Free Lyrics




Never got no love from a government man
Heading down the stream till' the leather gives in
What I gotta do to get the money?
We ain't got the money, we ain't got enough

Heading down the stream till' the leather gives in
Help, my dreams are wearing thin
All I need's relief I need, I need some sympathy

Look at me
I just can't believe
What they've done to me
We can never be free
I just wanna be

Look at me
I just can't believe
What they've done to me
We can never be free
I just wanna be
I just wanna dream

All my life been waiting in
Water so deep now we've got to swim
Wonder will it ever end
How long, how long do we have a friend

Look at me
I just can't believe
What they've done to me
We can never be free
I just wanna be

Look at me
I just can't believe
What they've done to me
We can never be free
I just wanna be
I just wanna dream

Look at me
I just can't believe
What they've done to me
We can never be free
I just wanna be

Look at me
I just can't believe
What they've done to me
We can never be free
I just wanna be
I just wanna dream

  12. AGKyran

    Honestly, am I the only who understands this video as a man going crazy over the fact that he has no possibility to be really free from the world, human societies.
    It's literally in the lyrics.
    Or do you all never care about the lyrics, or you don't think people talk about real stuff and how really they feel in lyrics ?

    I ask because it's weird. All this people here who don't seem to get the major point of this song and video.
    You just freak out because he cut his dreadlocks...
    Seems very strange to me. Normal, and strange.

    GlobeKrusha

    AGKyran True....

  14. Claudia Maggipinto

    Never got love from a government man
    Heading downstream till the levee gives in
    What can I do to get the money
    We ain't got the money, we ain't gettin' out

    Heading downstream till the levee gives in
    And my dreams are wearin' thin
    All I need's relief
    I need, I need some sympathy

    Look at me
    I just can't believe
    What they've done to me
    We could never get free
    I just wanna be,
    Look at me
    I just can't believe
    What they've done to me
    We could never get free
    I just wanna be,
    I just wanna dream

    All of my life been wadin' in
    Water so deep now we got to swim
    Wonder will it ever end
    How long, how long till we have a friend

    Look at me
    I just can't believe
    What they've done to me
    We could never get free
    I just wanna be,
    Look at me
    I just can't believe
    What they've done to me
    We could never get free
    I just wanna be
    I just wanna dream

    Look at me
    I just can't believe
    What they've done to me
    We could never get free
    I just wanna be,
    Look at me
    I just can't believe
    What they've done to me
    We could never get free
    I just wanna be
    I just wanna dream

  22. Pat Cox

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooooooooooooooooooo not the dreads

  23. HolandaChiquita

    I've been listening to a cover of this song sang by Triggerfinger for years. I absolutely love it. And listening to this cover by this amazing artist and seeing what happens in this video made my eyes well up with tears. I know it's just hair, but it felt so sad...

  24. Nathan Appleton

    I saw the song name secretly hoping it was a cover of major lazer. Great choice!

  25. Valtu F

    que buenas tijeras.

  26. Frank M. Losand

    This is one of those artists I just can't listen to for too long lest my list of favorite songs becomes too long...

  27. Namjoons forehead

    Omg at the end his hair is amazing

  28. Aphrodite Strong Oak

    New life, making new memories. :)

  29. Gemma Partington

    I love this cover so much ❤️❤️

  30. Lynnie Heal

    Kool   hair .We will  never  be free of  #MS  when many  are making billions  from  MS  drugs that  don't work or  cure  and the  MS  society UK  all  want more money  donated  yet have had  billions . Its  criminal  in MS  world.

  31. Jordan TRusso

    So he would have only had one shot to get this right.

  32. Elliott Metcalfe

    At least its a very clean mess

  33. Seth

    His wholesomeness and legitimacy is what I believe is missing from music.

  34. Цифровой Кердык

    сладко

  35. terry gilpin

    amazing singer

  36. terry gilpin

    newton faulkner is amazing

  37. Ollie Law

    This is one of my favorite songs ever and I had no idea this legend had done it...incredible. Now I have to decide which one I prefer!!

  38. jil

    Finally, someone who knows how to lip-sync in their music videos.

    inbal day

    Cc "Zach a
    eq, #_Jil Slayton

    MWY

    i'm thinking he just sung properly for more authenticity and then mute that audio and placed his song on top of it

    jil

    Yeah, I think so too. It's just I see other music videos where the singer is barely opening their mouth to the loud singing part of the song lol if that makes sense.

  39. Carlos Fa Rock

    No pues si le hacia falta un corte a este carnal !! xoxo

    Magdalena Boström

    Carlos Fa Rock fd,

  40. Boud' BADRI

    I love you Newton but you should've mentioned that it's a cover.. at least !
    a very good one BTW ! =)

  41. Caligula Jones

    why didn't Britney do some dope shit like this when she cut her hair? lmfao

  42. dionne harris

    oooh marco that comment nearly made me vomit. of course we all prefer him as he wants to be but there is nothing wrong with a little harmless banter between fans. i really dont care how he looks his talent is what i love and the package it comes in is totally irrelevant. at least we are not attacking each other calling names and being ridiculous petty trolls like some other comments on here.

  43. Beardie Boi

    rip dreads

  44. Yvette Martinez

    he died

  45. Alex Vickers

    Most watched haircut on youtube.

    Melanie MacDonalD

    C. Wilson

    Major Lazer

  48. Childish Galpino

    This should be more known than what it already is, catchy song

  49. rosenti

  67. MrLexanderluther1986

    I've had my locs for -- going on -- 11 years now, and this video terrifies me! Granted I'm only 58 seconds in, and dreading the ending (pun intended).

  72. Mikk D

    Nice try, but no one will EVER reach the level of the original. The original Get Free literally takes you to another dimension, is like giving your mind the most warm and comfortable hug. Everytime i hear it somehow i find my way. But hey, at least you did one minimum attempt to even compare to the original.

    Joshua Dematas

    Okay, but that's like, your opinion man.

    Mikk D

    +Joshua Dematas yeah of course it is :) thank you for noticing it, you Captain Obvious

  73. Ezio Auditore

    Damn this is the worst cover ever...

  74. Clio Endor

    👍🏻👍🏻💕

  75. Jess Hdz

    This is a cover of Major Lazer but i think that This version is better

  76. essennagerry

    This is a cover? Why is there no info about it? Who did he cover?

    Bianca Lake

    major lazer

    essennagerry

    +Bianca Lake Thank you! :)

  77. Patrizia Bonini

    So beautiful, I can't stop listening and looking at this video

  78. Mind Head

    Okay Britney !! hehe

  79. Amai Sutcliffe

    Imagine how nervous he must have been before he cut the first strand

  80. Jessie McNamara

    this is heart breakin.. why is he cutting his dreadies?!?!?!?!):

  81. Andrew S Rae

    NOOOOOOOOO!!.....bye bye dreds

  82. If Elie Says So

    The song's amazing.

    but, sweet jesus, this man with short hair is the best thing i've ever seen in my entire life

  83. Cristian Baquero

    I just can't believe, the guy who singed doctor house's intro song got a VEVO channel, cool.

  84. Nikki j

    I very nearly cried when he first snipped. I was in complete disbelief. I convinced myself it was fake! But of course he still looks unbelievably and effortlessly cool :-)

  85. The Indie Diary

    I guess he was fed up of the little creepers living in his hair. :P

  86. codfish30

    ALMOST as good as the Major Lazer version

    Joanne Buckley

    codfish30 nope it's better if you have good taste.

  87. Gurpreet Singh

    Very nice attempt but original one is still better imo. The beats are just exceptional in the original version.

  88. JewisLones

    Call me mad but I swear down this melody is similar to family portrait by pink.

  89. Jessica Bullivant

    Bye hair

  90. Kylie Macfarlane

    love the music vid... it was good to see symbol of hair as cuff or shacles of our life and need to break free. :)

  91. Tom Fromant

    "oops I forgot to hit record..." Can we do it again?

  92. Emma Baggott

    chill out man it's just a haircut!

  93. Rhian Thomas

    Such a simple video but so powerful

  94. Caroline Tyler RC - still learning

    That's so emotionally charged

    Amazing rework!!!

  96. Jordan Topping
