I'd lose everything so I can sing
Hallelujah, I'm free
(I'm free, I'm free)

I have lived my life so perfectly
Kept to all my lines so carefully
I'd lose everything so I can sing
Hallelujah, I'm free
I'm free, I'm free
I'm free, I'm free, I'm free
Hallelujah, I'm free

Gritting your teeth, you hold onto me
It's never enough, I'm never complete
Tell me to prove, expect me to lose
I push it away, I'm trying to move
Hoping for more, and wishing for less
When I didn't care was when I did best
I'm desperate to run, I'm desperate to leave
If I lose it all, at least I'll be free

All I want is your attention please
Don't want your opinion or your fee
'Cause the freest I have ever been
I had nothing to show or be seen
I'm free, I'm free
I'm free, I'm free

Gritting your teeth, you hold onto me
It's never enough, I'm never complete
Tell me to prove, expect me to lose
I push it away, I'm trying to move
Hoping for more, and wishing for less
I didn't care was when I did best
I'm desperate to run, I'm desperate to leave
If I lose it all, at least I'll be free
Gritting your teeth, you hold onto me
It's never enough, I'm never complete
Tell me to prove, expect me to lose
I push it away, I'm trying to move
Hoping for more, and wishing for less
I didn't care was when I did best
I'm desperate to run, I'm desperate to leave
If I lose it all, at least I'll be free

It's clear you think that I'm inferior
Whatever helps you sleep at night
Whatever helps you keep it tight

It's clear you think that I'm inferior
Whatever helps you sleep at night
Whatever helps you keep it tight

Gritting your teeth, you hold onto me
It's never enough, I'm never complete
Tell me to prove, expect me to lose
I push it away, I'm trying to move
Hoping for more, and wishing for less
When I didn't care was when I did best
I'm desperate to run, I'm desperate to leave
If I lose it all, at least I'll be free
Gritting your teeth, you hold onto me
It's never enough, I'm never complete
Tell me to prove, expect me to lose
I push it away, I'm trying to move
Hoping for more, and wishing for less
I didn't care was when I did best
I'm desperate to run, I'm desperate to leave
If I lose it all, at least I'll be free

Hallelujah, I'm free
