" 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

The Beatles
"Free As A Bird"

Free as a bird
It's the next best thing to be
Free as a bird

Home, home and dry
Like a homing bird I'll fly
As a bird on wings

Whatever happened to
The life that we once knew?
Can we really live without each other?

Where did we lose the touch
That seemed to mean so much?
It always made me feel so...

Free as a bird
Like the next best thing to be
Free as a bird

Home, home and dry
Like a homing bird I'll fly
As a bird on wings

Whatever happened to
The life that we once knew?
Always made me feel so free

Ah...
Ah...
Ah...

Free as a bird
It's the next best thing to be
Free as a bird
Free as a bird
Free as a bird
Oooooo

Free...
