And I wish I knew how
It would feel to be free
I wish that I could break
All the chains holding me

I wish I could say
All the things that I'd like to say
Say 'em loud, say 'em clear
For the whole round world to hear

I wish I could share
All the love that's in my heart
Remove every doubt
That keeps us apart

And I wish you could know
What it means to be me
Then you'd see and agree
Every man should be free

I wish I could live
Like I'm longin' to live
And I wish that I could give
What I'm longin' to give

And I wish I could do
All the things I'd like to do
You know they're still here's quite a few
Yes sir, and I'm way, way over due

I wish I could be
Like a bird up in the sky
How sweet it would be
If I found out I could fly

So long to the sun
And look down upon the sea
And I sing because I know
How it feels to be

And I sing because I know
How it feels
And I sing because I know
How it feels to be free, yeah
