I wish I knew how it would feel to be free
I wish I could break all these chains holding me
I wish I could say all the things I should say
Say ’em loud say ’em clear for the whole world to hear

I wish I could share all the love in my heart
Remove all the bars that still keep us apart
I wish you could know what it means to be me
Then you’d see and agree ev’ryone should be free

I wish I could be like a bird in the sky
How sweet it could be if I found I could fly
I’d soar to the sun and look down at the sea
Then I’d sing ’cause I’d know how it feels to be free.
