lyrics

Amy Speace / Angie Parkerson / AnnMarie O’Malley / Crissie Fitzgerald / Ramona Goodrum / Angel Munoz / Sandi Primous / Arpinee Sarkisian / Holly Slaughter

I’ve always done what was expected
What others wanted me to do
There's been something I've neglected
While I've been following the rules
I wasn't living just existing always giving to everyone but me

I wanted to be
Free finally
I wanted to be
Free finally

I was trained to be a fighter
This is a different kind of war
It's not out there no it's inside me
Now I know what I'm fighting for
For acceptance, independence, confidence it’s not only me

So I can be
Free finally
I can be
Free finally

Don't forget don't regret
Take off the mask don't go back there
Spread the word until I’m heard
Raise my fist watch me do this

I am
Free finally
Yes I am
Free finally
I am
Free finally
I am
Free finally

There is power in my story
And it's reflected in your eyes
It's a choir of connection
Sister warriors by my side
