I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel To Be Free Lyrics

Artist: Nina Simone
Album: Silk & Soul

I wish I knew how
It would feel to be free
I wish I could break
All the chains holding me
I wish I could say
All the things that I should 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 all the bars
That keep us apart
I wish you could know
What it means to be me
Then you'd see and agree
That every man should be free

I wish I could give
All I'm longin' to give
I wish I could live
Like I'm longin' to live
I wish I could do
All the things that I can do
And though I'mÅ  way over due
I'dŠŽ be starting a new

Well I wish I could be
Like a bird in the sky
How sweet it would be
If I found I could fly
Oh I'dŠŽ soar to the sun
And look down at the sea
Than I'd sing cos I know - yea
Then I'd sing cos I know - yea
Then I'd sing cos I know
I'dŠŽ know how it feels
Oh IŠŽ know how it feels to be free
Yea Yea! Oh, IŠŽ know how it feels
Yes IŠŽ know
Oh, IŠŽ know
How it feels
How it feels
To be free
