To Be Free

Son, I release you,
But you hold on…
But, you hold on…

Son, I give peace to you,
But you’re so strong…
But you’re so strong…

You’ll learn someday,
My blessings will come anyway

So how, how long?
Till you see through yourself to me?
How long till you see,
You don’t have to prove yourself to be free?

Son, I beseech you,
Won’t you slow down…
Won’t you slow down…

Son, I believe in you,
If you just believe…
I can bring you peace…

You’ll learn someday,
That I will love you anyway
So how, how long?

Till you, see through yourself to me?
How long till you see,
You don’t have to prove yourself?

White noise on the tiny landscape
At the edge of where you rest your head,
Did you forget my friend,
That the world kept moving while you slept?

And while you were singing the blues
To an empty room and feeling sorry for yourself,
Did you ever dream that somewhere, someone else, was saying…

How, how long?
Till you, see through yourself to me?
How long, till you see,
You don’t have to prove yourself to be free?

How long till you see through yourself to me?
How long, till you see…
You don’t have to prove yourself…

I paid the price
I made the sacrifice,
For you

I paid the price
I made the sacrifice,
For you…to be free
