about

The song is about Freedom. I started writing about the killing of young people especially in America and then a friend told me a story about a young refugee girl. I was inspired so I finished the song inspired by her story. Freedom can mean different things for people... what does freedom mean to you? What/ who are you fighting for?

lyrics

Freedom Lyrics

Intro
Freedom, freedom
oh oh oh
Freedom, freedom
oh oh oh


Verse1
They say love is unconditional
Well, tell it to the kids you've been shooting down
You seem to think that I've got it wrong
Tell me, where was the justice in Ferguson
They say in life we are all equal
Tell it to the queen who can't find her crown
Born into a world where she’s forced to be strong
Age 12 and she's fighting for her freedom
And every night she sings

Chorus
Freedom is what we want now
Freedom is what we need
Freedom is what we want now
Freedom is what we need

Verse 2
I heard she travelled 100miles to escape the guns
Both parents gone, now she has no one
Praying for a new life in a foreign land
On the borders pleading, hoping you will understand
We talk about the problem but we wont change
Giving up some privileges seem too insane
Can we war no more, cause we're losing our young
How far can we go without our freedom
So if you hear me sing

Chorus
Freedom is what we want now
Freedom is what we need
Freedom is what we want now
Freedom is what we need (x 2)

Outro
Tell it to them now
Shout it out loud
Tell it to them now
Cause we've had enough
