"Closer To Free" as written by and Samuel Llanas Kurt Neumann....
Yee-yeah
Everbody wants to live, like they want to live
And everybody wants to love, like they want to love
And everybody wants to be closer to free

Yeah, yeah, yeah,
Everybody wants respect, just a little bit
And everybody needs a chance once in a while
Everybody wants to be, closer to free

Yeah, yeah, yeah
Everybody one, everybody two, everybody free
Everybody needs to touch, you know, now and then
And everybody wants a good, good friend
Everybody wants to be, closer to free
All right

I said
Everybody one, everybody two, everybody free

Everybody wants to live, like they want to live
And everybody wants to love, like they want to love
And everybody wants to be, closer to free

Yeah, closer to free...
Yeah, yeah, yeah

    General CommentI remember hearing this for the first time and thinking someone really must have liked the Indigo Girls' "Closer to Fine" and thought it was worth copying. I guess there was no lawsuit over it, but it seems like there could have been.

    General CommentI don't think you can copyright song titles. Least, I read that somewhere. Look at how many songs there are called "Photograph." And there's at least two songs called "Love Me Do"

    Anyway. Pretty simple, but very nice to hear. Just about being able to live your life how you want to.

    General CommentParadoxically about the freedom that comes with being an adult and adult responsibility. You only get "closer to free" as you grow up.
