Freedom Song - Julie Matthews
From the album ‘Quest’ While and Matthews


Esther is gone and she’s not coming back
And her brother’s off shooting up trouble
All of your fears for your children came back on you double
If dreams were only like kites in the wind
That took off and danced with the curve of a hand
If dreams were only like kites in the wind
We’d know freedom then

Only the cold and the cynical few
With stones where their hearts used to be
Step over the man on the street that is down on his luck and down on his knees
If only our fears were like tears in the rain
They all disappeared when the first showers came
If only our fears were like tears in the rain
We’d know freedom then

We’ll know freedom then - we’ll know freedom then
We’ll know freedom then
(We’ll know love) We’ll know freedom then
(We’ll see the light) We’ll know freedom then
(The truth will liberate us when there’s Freedom then)
We’ll know freedom then

We fear and we sneer at the difference between us
And barriers keep us apart
Where jealousy thrives it just drives a wedge in our hearts
If only our hopes were like seeds in the wind
Carried afar to a more fertile land
If only our hopes were like seeds in the wind
We’d know freedom then

We’ll know freedom then - we’ll know freedom then
We’ll know freedom then
(We’ll know love) We’ll know freedom then
(We’ll see the light) We’ll know freedom then
(The truth will liberate us when there’s Freedom then)
We’ll know freedom then
We’ll know freedom then - we’ll know freedom then
We’ll know freedom then
(We’ll know love) We’ll know freedom then
(We’ll see the light) We’ll know freedom then
(The truth will liberate us when there’s Freedom then)
We’ll know freedom then
