Whether I'm right,
Whether I'm wrong,
Time it goes by, life it goes on
When the light is on my side
Love reveals itself to me
Then I can, yes I can
I can be set free

Every garden can grow
Every mouth can form a smile,
So let yourself go, ease your mind for a while
When you're tired, and you're torn
Humankind it seems filled with misery
Then you can, yes you can
You can be set free

I'm not an ordinary man
I don't pretend to be
Want to be extraordinary man,
I want to know peace
When the lights go out, I'm not lonely
It's the only thing that matters to me
Yes I can,yes we can
We can be set free
We can know peace
We can be set free

    General Commenti honestly think this is one of the best songs ever written, slim is brilliant. absolutely brilliant. his albums do him little justice (and i ADORE his albums) you must see him live. it will honestly change your perspective on life.

    General CommentSuch an amazing song.
    Does anyone know where I can buy or download it?
    I've heard only on one of his live albums, but where would I find that?

    Love
