(Couplet 1)

Kids are playing outside

A man takes his girl for a ride

But is it strange? No, it is their right

The wind blows away the leafs, as i roll up my sleeves

And look at the bright sunlight

Do you realize

That the lives we have today are the reason so many people had to fight?

They were prepared to give their lives, and some have died

To make our future bright

  

(Refrein)

You've got to be free

Free in your life

Free of speech, and free of mind

'Cause it is your right

Oh, you're free

Free to live and love

So discover what the path is you want to walk

And what your world's made of

You've got to be free

You've got to be free 

 

( Couplet 2)

When the sun goes up

And another day starts, and we finally open up our hearts

To everything around us

All the light, and all the love that's around

For you in the world, is now finally found

I hope one day, we stop fighting wars, and see, that the world is ours,

'Cause you've got to be free  

 

( Bridge)

But imagine a place you knew all your life

Where you grew up, you met your wife

Is destroyed with bombs and grenades,

Why are some so full of hate?

We will all be one, if:

 

(Refrein )

You've got to be free

Free in your life

Free of speech, and free of mind

'Cause it is our right

Oh, you're free

Free to live and love

So discover what the path is you want to walk

And what your world's made of

You've got to be free

You've got to be free
