lyrics

Light, quick lightening,
Thundering, blundering.
I said I prayer,
I inked it to my arm,
I inked it to my arm.

Freedom, freedom where have you been?
I've been missing you so long.
Guns and soldiers, bullets, patrollers,
Freedom never felt so wrong.

All around me they're making up stories,
Saying we got good things coming.
But Freedom took off before that talk,
Ever since then I've been running.

My future's dead, shot in the head,
Forgive me don't care about nothing,
But finding the light, for too long I've been blind,
And the truth's gotta count for something.

Freedom, freedom where have you been?
I've been missing you so long.
Guns and soldiers, bullets, patrollers,
Freedom never felt so wrong.

Light, quick lightening,
Thundering, blundering.
I said I prayer,
I inked it to my arm,
She inked it to her arm,
I inked it to my arm.

– Bernie Taupin, Elton John's cowriter

"I've never seen an unknown performer with more power as when I saw Ariana performing at a music convention – I couldn't stop talking about her. The last performer I felt this way about was Bruce Springsteen"
