freedom lyrics – andy griggs

the sun is setting on my lonely heart
in this cheap motel
and what i thought would be a brand new start
is just a prison cell

independence was calling my name
screamin’ in the wind
sayin’, “son, you need a change
but now these walls are closin’ in”

’cause freedom’s just a prison
for a fool like me
chains around my heart ain’t liberty
i left you standin’ tall
but now i’m beggin’ on my knees

you’ve still got me
(ooo, still got me)
so baby, unlock me
(ooo, unlock me)
from this freedom

my soul is burning for that sweet release
where only moonlight can find us
hey, i miss your kiss, i miss you holding me
and all the ties that used to bind us

freedom’s just a prison for a fool like me
chains around my heart ain’t liberty
i left you standin’ tall
but now i’m beggin’ on my knees

you’ve still got me
(ooo, still got me)
so baby, unlock me
(ooo, unlock me)
from this freedom

oh, freedom’s just a prison for a fool like me
chains around my heart ain’t liberty
i left you standin’ tall
but now i’m beggin’ on my knees

you’ve still got me
(ooo, still got me)
so baby, unlock me
(ooo, unlock me)

yeah! you’ve still got me
(you’ve still got me)
so baby, unlock me
(ooo, unlock me)
from this freedom
from this freedom
(freedom)

i can’t take this freedom
(ohh)
no more freedom
(freedom)
