Song Lyric Sunday Freedom

This week Helen Vahdati has asked us to post songs about freedom. 

Rules and Pingback Here

I wanted to come at this prompt from a slightly different angle. There are many brilliant freedom songs , protest songs and celebratory  songs.

I have chosen Queen and “I want to break free” I am not sure exactly what they were saying in this song but I get a very strong message from the lyrics. The lyrics tell me we need to break away from the ties of convention, from gender rolls, from controlling people and how we are expected to act. 

Freedom from war and oppression is very important but also freedom from personal oppression and being tied down by society’s expectations is very important and is often swept under the carpet.

From the young girl trapped in an arranged marriage, to the partner in a mentally abusive marriage, to anyone trapped in the wrong sex, to lesbian and gay rights , to anyone being bullied young or old to anyone who needs to spread their wings and fly.

Okay I have ranted on enough, who knew I felt so strongly  on the subject.

Lyrics from here

“I Want To Break Free”

I want to break free
I want to break free
I want to break free from your lies
You’re so self satisfied I don’t need you
I’ve got to break free
God knows, God knows I want to break free.

I’ve fallen in love
I’ve fallen in love for the first time

And this time I know it’s for real
I’ve fallen in love, yeah
God knows, God knows I’ve fallen in love.

It’s strange but it’s true
I can’t get over the way you love me like you do
But I have to be sure
When I walk out that door
Oh how I want to be free, baby
Oh how I want to be free,
Oh how I want to break free.

But life still goes on
I can’t get used to, living without, living without,
Living without you by my side
I don’t want to live alone, hey
God knows, got to make it on my own
So baby can’t you see
I’ve got to break free.

I’ve got to break free
I want to break free, yeah
I want, I want, I want, I want to break free
