Oh I know they say someday time will show me How to be so cool, someday, but what about right now Please someone tell me what do I do while I'm waiting Waiting to be so cool, someday I know I'm not alone, you know just how I feel We both know the rules, but who really knows How to play this game?
No one will always win, good losers hide the pain They say everything's fine No one will hear them complain But behind those smiles, so much purple rain It's a wonder anybody ever comes out sane, but they do And freedom it's all up to you
When you're by yourself you get that silent noise Inside your mind, all the party boys trying to fill up All the empty holes don't let one be her soul Freedom, now you're on your own Freedom, or does it really mean you're just all alone Freedom, either way it's gonna take you home It just takes you by the hand and says, Now it's time to grow
So my friend you're gonna be alright Seems like it's all uphill But then that's the only way to get high Someday your soul is gonna fly But don't look back 'cause that's a waste of time And right now's the time for you to look inside And you'll see love, love has never gone away
Freedom, I've been standing still so long Freedom, I almost forgot you had a song Freedom, shine your light and let us begin Just take me in our arms I want to be free again
