Song of the Day “Love is Freedom”

Love is Freedom

© 2012 Andy Harrison

Way back past the foothills

End of a dirt road

She grew up with 7 brothers

And a lawn never mowed

She would hide in the sage brush

From her Dad’s whiskey breath

Praying black crows were angels

And right would turn left

Chorus:

Love is freedom

Freedom is love

If they don’t feel like the same thing

Ain’t got what you’re thinkin’ of

Ain’t no contradiction

Ain’t no compromise

Love is freedom

All the rest lies

She broke free to the city

When she was 14

Changed her name and hair color

Reaching out for some dream

Worked the restaurants and night clubs

And the dive bars

Scraping quarters and dollars

Looking up towards the stars

Chorus:

Love is freedom

Freedom is love

If they don’t feel like the same thing

Ain’t got what you’re thinkin’ of

Ain’t no contradiction

Ain’t no compromise

Love is freedom

All the rest lies

She had her own little angel

When she was 28

They lived in a one bedroom

Over looking the lake

Rocking chair by the window

With the breeze blowing in

She took in a deep breath

Watched the new day begin

Chorus:

Love is freedom

Freedom is love

If they don’t feel like the same thing

Ain’t got what you’re thinkin’ of

Ain’t no contradiction

Ain’t no compromise

Love is freedom

All the rest lies
