Another minute in this prison cell
And I'm losing it
If there's a heaven
Then I'm stuck in hell and I'm over it

Counting the scratches
On a concrete wall
And it added up
23 years of nothing but a dot, dot, dot
23 years and I am who I once was not

[Chorus:]
I'm lying in the dark
But I am not alone
Singing out my heart
To a song I've never known
I'm free as I will ever be
Free as a melody

I used to dream about the day
They'd say "you are free to leave"
I used to lay awake
The whole damned night
So I wouldn't dream

But now I'm sleeping like a free man
Traded his heart with me
Finally I remember every wasted night

[Chorus]

I'll take another day
I'll open my eyes
Find a better way to live a better life
I'm free as I will ever be
Free as a melody
