My Hidden Life
Based on a True Story
It's not the final destination
It's the journey on the way
I can feel these times are changing
But I want to be free to find where I belong

I know at times I acted a little crazy
And I made mistakes along the way
But I can see that I'm changing
And finally I'm free to find where I belong
