(Free me, free me)
Oh, six strings, three chords, ah, big dreams
(Free me, free me)

And He don't let me down when the days of rain came
He was there for me when I was in pain
Yeah, I needed a call, He was the real friend

Oh, He got the words when I'm feeling low
He's like a skimming stone, like a rainbow
He's my brother when I'm down, when I'm in luck
(He is)
He's my brother when I'm down and I'm out of luck
(Jesus Christ)

You know it's only love
So let's come together
A little redemptive pleasure, mmm, hmm

Let's do this thing called life
Oh, let's try, oh, let's try
Let's do this thing called life
Hmm, let's try, ooh, let's try

Don't have to swim with the tide
Swim against the tide and find some hand to hold
Find somebody to show the light
Oh, they're out there in the matrix tonight

Oh, man, I've seen so many pages
Of stories that have drifted down rivers
And the paper, yeah, gets lost
In the sea, in the oceans, oh, Lord, I'm a giver

Whoa, it's just a feeling
It's just a feeling

Let's do this thing called life
Oh, let's try, oh, let's try
Let's do this thing called life
Hmm, let's try, ooh, let's try

You gotta learn to swim against the tide
You gotta learn to drop your foolish pride
You gotta learn to know these things, they're dust
You gotta learn that misdeeds only rust

You gotta learn the chains can open up
And environment can fuck you up
You gotta learn that drugs don't really work
Unless you know the ones that hurt

Oh, babe, let's do it again
I wanna put the record on and live it again
I wanna rewind the tape, turn off the clocks
This is life, now undo my locks

Let's do this thing called life
Oh, let's try, oh, let's try
Let's do this thing called life
Oh, let's try, oh, let's try

She's my brother, my mother
My sister, my mother, my father, oh, yeah
She's my brother, my sister
(Free me now, free me)
My father, my mother, oh
(Please hear me now)

Come on, let's do this thing called life
Oh, let's try, oh, let's try
Let's do this thing called life
Oh, let's try, ooh, let's try

Now free me, now heal me
Now free me, now heal me
Now free me, now heal me
