Lyrics



introduction
Ooh, Ooh, I want to be free.
Ooh, Ooh, it was meant to be.
Wanna be, wanna wanna be free; want to be free.
Wanna be, wanna wanna be free; want to be free.
Wanna be, wanna wanna be free; want to be free.
Wanna be, wanna wanna be free; want to be free.

verse 1
You want my body and you want my soul.
You want to own me; you want to control.
You say that you trust me, but it doesn't show.
If you hold me too close, then you'll just have to let go.

bridge
I just can't live this way.
Like a bird from a cage, I must fly away.

refrain
I was born to be free.
(I want to be free.)
It was meant to be.
(It was meant to be.)
It was my destiny; I've got to believe.
You won't take my freedom from me.

interlude
Wanna be, wanna wanna be free; want to be free.
Wanna be, wanna wanna be free; want to be free.
Wanna be, wanna wanna be free; want to be free.
Wanna be, wanna wanna be free; want to be free.

verse 2
Don't want to feel like I'm just being used -
A pawn in the game; you've been breaking the rules.
You're holding me back from the things I could do.
I need to grow, but you don't want me to.

bridge
I just can't live this way.
Like a bird from a cage, I must fly away.

refrain
I was born to be free.
(I want to be free.)
It was meant to be.
(It was meant to be.)
It was my destiny; I've got to believe.
You won't take my freedom from me.

bridge
I just can't live this way.
I must fly away.

verse 3
Don't try to hold me; you go against my right.
Don't tell me you'll be alone every night.
I don't want to hear it; I don't want a fight.
There's nothing to say: There's no wrong; there's no right.

bridge
I just can't live this way.
I must fly away.

conclusion
I was born to be free.
(I want to be free.)
It was meant to be.
(It was meant to be.)
It was my destiny; I've got to believe.
You won't take my freedom from me.
Don't take my freedom!
Don't take my freedom!
