Testo

Freedom gala Version

[La parte in cui canta anche Amy è stata evidenziata in corsivo grassetto]

So open up your morning light
And say a little prayer for I
You know that if we are to stay alive
And see the peace in every I

Tu, tu, tu, turu...

She had two babies
One was six months one was three
In the war of '44
Every telephone ring
Every heartbeat stinging
When she thought it was God calling her
Oh would her son grow to know his father

I don't want to wait
For our lives to be over
I want to know right know
What will it be
I don't want to wait
For our lives to be over
Will it be yes or will it be
Sorry

Tu, tu, tu, turu...

He showed up all wet
On the rainy front step
Wearing shrapnel in his skin
And the war he saw
Lives inside him still
It's so hard to be gentle and warm
(Oooo...)
The years passed by and now
(The years passed by and now)
He has granddaughters
(He has granddaughters)

I don't want to wait
For our lives to be over
I want to know right know
What will it be
I don't want to wait
For our lives to be over
Will it be yes or will it be

Oh so you look at me
From across the room
You're wearing your anguish again
Believe me, i know the feeling
It sucks you into the jaws of anger
Oh, so dig a little more deeply into my life
(Oooo...)
All we have is the very moment
(Oooo... moment. Oooo...)
And I don't want to do what
His father and his father and his father did
I want to be here now
(I want to be here now)

So open up your morning light
And say a little prayer for I
You know that if we are to stay alive
And see the peace in every I

I don't want to wait
For our lives to be over
I want to know right know
What will it be
I don't want to wait
For our lives to be over
Will it be yes or will it be

I don't want to wait
(da, da, dada)
For our lives to be over
(da, da, dada)
I want to know right know
(da, da, dada)
What will it be
(da, da, dadadada)
I don't want to wait
(da, da, dada)
For our lives to be over
(da, da, dada)
Will it be yes or will it be
(da, da, dada)
Sorry

Tu, tu, tu, turu...

So open up your morning light
And say a little prayer for I
You know that if we are to stay alive
And see the love in every eye
