I Am Free lyrics

Once I was a prisoner
Lost inside myself
With the world surrounding me
Wandering through the misery
But now I am free
(Mhhhhhhhhh)

You gave me a breath of life
Unclouded my eyes
With a sweet serenity
Lighting a ray of hope for me
And now I am free
(Oooooooooh)
Free to live
Free to laugh
Free to soar
Free to shine
Free to give
Free to love
Free enough to fly

Oooooh
Once I was all so alone
Unsteady and cold
But your love rained down upon me
Washing away uncertainty

But now
(Now)
(I)
I am free
I am free
