"Free" as written and performed by Stevie Wonder....
Free like the river
Flowing freely through infinity
Free to be sure of
What I am and who I need not be
Free from all worries
Worries prey on oneself's troubled mind
Freer than the clock's hands
Tickin' way the times
Freer than the meaning of free that man defines
Life running through me
Till I feel my father God has called

Me having nothin'
But possessing riches more than all
And I'm free
To be nowhere
But in every place I need not be
Freer than a sunbeam
Shining through my soul
Free from feelin' heat or knowing bitter cold
Free from conceiving, the beginning
For that's the infinite start

I'm gone, gone but still living
Life goes on without a beating heart

Whoa whoa whoa oh Free mmm, like the vision
That the mind of only you can see

Freer than a raindrop
Falling from the sky
Freer than a smile in a baby's sleeping eyes yeah heh

I'm Free like the river
Flowin' freely through infinity
Whoa Free, to be sure of
What I am and who I need not be
And I'm much freer, than the meaning of the word Free that man, oh man defines
Free, yeah like the vision
That the mind of only, only you are ever gonna see
Free like the river my life
Goes on and on through infinity

    Song ComparisonStevie Wonder – Free (CORRECT LYRICS)

    Free like the river
    Flowing freely through infinity
    Free to be sure of
    What I am and who I need not be
    Free from all worries
    Worries prey on oneself's troubled mind
    Freer than the clock's hands
    Tickin' way the times
    Freer than the meaning of free that man defines
    Life running through me
    Till I feel my father God has called

    Me having nothin'
    But possessing riches more than all
    And I'm free
    To be nowhere
    But in every place I need to be
    Freer than a sunbeam
    Shining through my soul
    Free from feelin' heat or knowing bitter cold
    Free from conceiving the beginning
    For that's the infinite start

    I'm gone, gone but still living
    Life goes on without a beating heart

    Whoa whoa whoa ohh Free
    Like the vision that the mind of only you can see
    Freer than a raindrop
    Falling from the sky
    Freer than a smile in a baby's sleeping eyes

    I'm free, ah like the river
    Flowin' freely through infinity
    Whoa Free to be sure of
    What I am and who I need not be
    And I'm much freer, like the meaning
    Of the word free that man, oh man defines
    Free yeah, free like the vision that
    The mind of only, only you are ever gonna see
    Free like the river my life
    Goes on and on through infinity

    General CommentWow...how the hell did this song not make it to the Box Set????? I downloaded some songs that are not included in the box set, and I happened to choose this song. well I'm afraid if I'm missing out more songs..that definately deserve to be on the Box Set at least. 4 CDs..not enough

    Lyric CorrectionFree like the river flowing freely through infinity
    Free to be sure of what I am and who I need not be
    Free from all worries, worries prey on oneself's troubled mind
    Freer than the clock's hands ticking way the time
    Freer than the meaning of free that man defines

    Life running through me till I feel my father God has called
    Me having nothing but possessing riches more than all
    And I'm free to be nowhere but in every place I need to be
    Freer than a sunbeam shining through my soul
    Free from feeling heat or knowing bitter cold

    Free from conceiving the beginning for that's the infinite start
    I'm gone, but I'm still living, life goes on without a beating heart
    Whoa whoa whoa ohh free like the vision that the mind of only you can see
    Freer than a raindrop falling from the sky
    Freer than a smile in a baby's sleeping eyes

    I'm free like a river flowing freely through infinity
    Whoa I'm free to be sure of what I am and who I need not be
    And I'm much freer than the meaning of the word free that man, oh man defines
    Free, yeah like the vision that the mind of only, only you will ever will see
    Yeahh free like the river ,my life goes on and on through infinity
