I Feel Free

I've been crucified

I have lied

All my life I've tried

Only to end up fried

I could have cried

But now, I feel free

--------------------

I've been shamed

I've been blamed

I've felt so maimed

It's all so strange

This hadn't been arranged

But now, I feel free

--------------------

In the past I felt so blue

I bled into my shoe

I didn't know what to do

I'd never quite broken through

Seems I always needed my cue

But now, I feel free

--------------------

For years I played the fool

It was all so cruel

For me the nights were never cool

There were wolves that wanted me mauled

Women saw me and covered themselves in shawls

But now, I feel free

--------------------

People said I was as white as a sheet

I could only hear them bleat

They found it easy to retreat

So they could see me as meat

Their wolf to my sheep

But now, I feel free

--------------------

Never knew I could really see

Never knew who I could really be

People said they thought I was a she

I definitely disagreed

I thought I could never be me

But now, I feel free
