They say everything can be replaced
That every distance is not near
So I remember every face
Of every man who put me here

They say every woman needs protection
Then they turn around and tell you
Every woman's got to fall
I swear, I see my own reflection
Somewhere far beyond this wall

I see my life come shining
From the west down to the east
Any day now, any day now
I shall be released

Now, yonder stands there in that lonely crowd
A man who swears he is not to blame, no, no
And if you ask him has he ever seen this lonely woman?
He'll tell you, "No, no, no"
What's more, he does not know my name

But I see my light come shining
Shining, shining, shining from the west
Straight on down to the east
Ah, any day now, any, any old day now
I am going to, I am going to be released, yeah

They tell ya, they tell ya every woman
They tell ya every woman got to have protection
Then they turn around and tell ya
"No, we gonna make that a woman fall"
Oh, god, I swear, I swear I see
I see my, my very own reflection
Far and away beyond, way, way beyond these four walls

That's right, I see, I see my life, my life
My life is shining, shining, shining
Shining, shining, shining, shining
From the west straight on down to the east
And any day now, do you hear me?
Any day now, I shall be, I am going to be released

Any day now, any day now, any day now
Any, any day now, oh, any day now
Any day, any day, any day
Any day, any day, any day
Woah, any day, any day, any old day now
Yeah, any day now, I am going to, I shall be released

Woah, any day now, I shall see again
Any day now, I shall be free again
Any day now, they'll let me be again
Oh, any day now, any day now, any day now
Whoa, help me, any day, any day
Any old day now
