"Free" as written by and Organized Noize T. Burton....
I keep my lid on tightly
I dress the part and smile
But something's stirring underneath
It's been brewing there a while

Pacing my halls on tiptoes
Sitting, I twiddle my thumbs
Making a break when the bell goes
How fast can these legs run?

I'm free
Free as a bird
I'm free
Free as a bird

I'm tired of all your stories
'Bout what you've seen and done
Wagging your finger back at me
Why don't you bite your tongue?

Cutting around the corners
Traipsing through back alleys
Doing exactly what I want
Don't care what you think of me

I'm free
Free as a bird
I'm free
Free as a bird

Like a word
That leaves my mind
Like a dream
Leaves in daylight

I've waited a long, long while now
Bided my time for this
Traded my suits for cowboy boots
For something I wouldn't dare miss

Keepin' my fingers crossed now
Keepin' my toes crossed too
If I blink and find I'm dreamin'
I don't know what I would do

I'm free
Free as a bird
I'm free
Free as a bird

I'm free
Free as a bird
I'm free
Free as a bird

I keep my lid on tightly
