i shall be released lyrics – jeff buckley

they say everything can be replaced
but every distance is not near
so i remember every face
of every man that put me here

i see my light come shining
from the west unto the east
any day now, any day now
i shall be released

they say every man needs protection
they say that every man must fall
yet i swear i see my reflection
some place so high above this wall

say, i see my light come shining
from the west unto the east
any day now, any way now
i shall be released

oh yeah
but you know, whoa
ooh yeah

they’re standing next to me in this lonely crowd
is a man who swears he’s not to blame
all day long i hear his voice shouting so loud
crying out he has been framed

i see my light come shining
from the west unto the east
any day now, any way now
i shall be released

everybody say with me

i see my light come shining
what about west or east
from the west unto the east
any day now, any day now
i shall be released
