" You can catch the wind,
You can catch the sea,
But you can't, pretty mama,
Ever catch me.

You can tame a rabbit,
Even tame bear,
But you'l never, pretty mama,
Keep me caged up here".


Free Man
Langston Hughes

Free Bird

If I leave here tomorrow
Would you still remember me?
For I must be travelling on, now,
'Cause there's too many places I've got to see.
But, if I stayed here with you, girl,
Things just couldn't be the same.
'Cause I'm as free as a bird now,
And this bird you can not change.
Lord knows, I can't change.

Bye, bye, its been a sweet love.
Though this feeling I can't change.
But please don't take it badly,
'Cause Lord knows I'm to blame.
But, if I stayed here with you girl,
Things just couldn't be the same.
Cause I'm as free as a bird now,
And this bird you'll never change.
And this bird you can not change.
Lord knows, I can't change.
Lord help me, I can't change.

like a bird
on a wire
like a drunk
in a midnight choir
i have tried
in my way
to be free

like a worm
on a hook
like a night
in some old-fashioned book
i have saved
all my ribbons
for thee.

if i...
if i have been unkind
i hope you know
it was not in my mind
and if i
if i have been untrue
i hope you know
it was never to you.

like a baby, still-born,
like a beast, with his horn
i have torn
everyone
who reached out to me.

but i swear
by this song,
and by all that i have done wrong,
i have tried
in my way... to be free

Leonard Cohen / about 1960
