"I Am Free" as written by Mariah Carey and Walter N. Afanasieff....
Once I was a prisoner
Lost inside myself
With the world surrounding me
Wandering through the misery
But now I am free

You gave me a breath of life
Unclouded my eyes
With sweet serenity
Lighting a ray of hope for me
And now I am free

Free to live
Free to laugh
Free to soar
Free to shine
Free to give
Free to love
Free enough to fly

Once I was all so alone
Unsteady and cold
But your love rained down upon me
Washing away uncertainty

But now
I am
Now, oh, now
I am free

    General CommentI really like this song. To me it's about God freeing me from the binds that hold me back in life. Because of God I am free of all that burdens me, and I am "free to live", as the song would quote. Free to live, that sounds nice.
