Oh oh oh oh
Wait a minute
Wait a minute
I think I gotta take some time
And clear my mind
'Cause if I don't
I might scream

Scream out loud
In a little bit
I'm a tell you
What I'm talking bout

Ladies (ladies, ladies)
If you know what I mean
When you're in love
And give your everything
(Tired of that happening)
Ooh, this time it's for me
After you've bein' doin' you
I'm gonna do me

Let me tell you by singin' it
Instead of tellin' lies
This story specifies
Why I can't deny your love
True

You're always here and there
Finally I appear
I'm a keep it real
With you

Ain't no feelin' like being free
When your mind's made up
And your heart's in the right place
Yeah
Ain't no feelin' like being free
When you done all you could
What was misunderstood
It's all good
Ain't no feelin' like bein' free
I'm like an eagle set free
And finally I'm looking out for me
Ain't no feelin' like being free
'Cause my mind's made up
And my heart's in the right place
Yeah

Hold 'em up, wait a second
I gotta get something off my chest
My happiness with your happiness
I lived in (free)
You and all your needs
Let me speak
It's best I do
What's best for me
Now ladies (ladies, ladies)
I've got my mind back
I've been there
And done that
(No lookin' back, no)
Ooh this time its for me
Either you gonna do you
I'm gonna do me
I'm free

Time, is of the essence
And especially too short
To waste another minute on you

While, you stare there
Tryna hide
I'm back in here saying bye
Thought you were my dream come true

Ain't no feelin' like being free
When your mind's made up
And your heart's in the right place
Yeah
Ain't no feelin' like being free
When you done all you could
What was misunderstood
It's all good
Ain't no feelin' like bein' free
I'm like an eagle set free
And finally I'm looking out for me
Ain't no feelin' like being free
'Cause my mind's made up
And my heart's in the right place
Yeah

No, it isn't being left out
You might have forgotten about
Didn't deserve my love
I've had enough
Set me free

Ain't no feelin' like being free
When your mind's made up
And your heart's in the right place
Yeah
Ain't no feelin' like being free
When you done all you could
What was misunderstood
It's all good
Ain't no feelin' like bein free
I'm like an eagle set free
And finally I'm looking out for me
Ain't no feelin like being free
'Cause my mind's made up
And my heart's in the right place
Yeah

Can I get some lovin'
Can I get some time
Lovin' in the morning
And in the midnight hour

I gave you everything of mine
I gave you everything you needed
But you just didn't do right
(No, no)
So baby now I'm leavin
It feels so good to be free
Yeah, yeah
Ooh ooh ha ooh ha
Free
Free
Free
Free

Ain't no feelin' like being free
When your mind's made up
And your heart's in the right place
Yeah
Ain't no feelin' like being free
When you done all you could
What was misunderstood
(I cater to my man, now he better cater to me)
It's all good
Ain't no feelin' like bein free
(Take me out some time)
I'm like an eagle set free
And finally I'm looking out for me
Ain't no feelin' like being free
'Cause my mind's made up
(If it's all about you, I'm gonna do me)
And my heart's in the right place
Yeah (I'm free)

Yeah I don't want to hear it
No no no no go get up outta here
I don't want to hear it
No no no no go get up outta hear

    General CommentNo comments? Well there you go :)

    It's fairly obvious what this song means.

    It's a girl that has given her everything to her partner but he just keeps lying or acting like a prick, and she's over it, so when she leaves him, she feels free and she loves it.

    The music for it is great, it is really peaceful and the girls even sound fee and relaxed when they sing it.

    I relate to this song a lot. My boyfriend has been treating me really badly lately and this song almost gives me the strength to leave - it's like it's telling me that I'll be okay if I leave.
