"I Shall Be Released" as written by and Bob Dylan....
They say everything can be replaced
They say every distance is not near
So I remember every face
Of every man who put me here

I see the light come shining
From the west down to the east
Any day now, any day now
I shall be released

They say every man needs protection
They say every man must fall
So, I swear I see my reflection
Somewhere inside these walls

I see my light come shining
From the west down to the east
Any day now, any day now
I shall be released

Yonder standing me in this lonely crowd
A man who says he's not to blame
All day long I hear him hollering so loud
Just crying out that he's not to blame

I see my light come shining
From the west down to the east
Any day now, any day now
I shall be released

    General Commentthis song has a slow anthem quality to it.
    when she sings about freedom you can really feel her freedom deeply.

    General CommentI agree with the other poster. It's a song about freedom of some kind. It's rather nice, and perfect for Nina's voice.
