"Freedom" as written by Onika Tanya Maraj, Matthew Raymond Burnett and Matthew Jehu Samuels....
I know that you can feel abused
And I know the feeling that there ain’t no use
When something is doing you under
Don’t you know it makes you wonder
Why do I stay here?
Can I find my way here?

You may find it’s just a matter of faith that’s lost its way
Take some time to reaffirm the feeling that’s gone astray
And baby there’ll be sunny weather
If we get our heads together
Who cares where the fault lies
Be free from the false ties

The feeling has got to be there to have the inspiration
How can you get anywhere out of desperation?
Your strength is in your smile and not your frustration
If we try for a while there’ll be no hesitation

I know there’s a much better way to feel
Even though some of the desires begin to seem so real
But they won’t be here forever
If we try to love each other
I’m gonna stay here
Till I see my way clear

Do you remember all the good times that you thought you used to have
While you were riding wildly in your car?
But you didn’t dig it all that much, did you really then?
‘Cause it had nothin’ much to do with what you are
You can’t suppress what you are any more
You got to carry yourself through the door
You got to see yourself, be yourself, freedom

Can you honestly evaluate the story from within
Without part of you blocking the way?
If there never is no way but up you’re starting to feel
When where you are at is just to face another day
You can’t suppress what you are any more
You got to carry yourself through the door
You got to see yourself, be yourself, freedom

Freedom, freedom
