"Free as the Wind" as written by Jerry Goldsmith and Harold Shaper....
Yesterday's world is a dream
Like a river that runs through my mind
Made of fields and the white pebble stream
That I knew as a child
Butterfly wings in the sun
Taught me all that I needed to see
For they sang, sang to my heart
"Oh look at me, oh look at me"
"Free as the wind, free as the wind"
"That is the way you should be"

Love was the dream of my life
And I gave it the best I know how
So it always brings tears to my eyes
When I think of it now
Gone like the butterfly days
And the boy that I once used to be
But my heart still hears a voice
Tellin' me "look, look and you'll see"
"Free as the wind, free as the wind"
"That is the way you should be"

There's no regret that I feel
For the bittersweet taste of it all
If you love, there's a chance you may fly
If you fall, well you fall
Rather the butterfly's life
To have lived for a day and been free
For my heart still hears that voice
Tellin' me "look and you'll see"
"Free as the wind, free as the wind"
"That is the way you should be"
"Free as the wind, free as the wind"
"That is the way you should be"
