Freedom lyrics

Freedom is the first track on Noah Blumenfeld’s EP Shine. Noah sings front-porch philosophy, backed by guitar and double bass. A chorus bursts forth with joyful voices singing of a bright new sunrise seen from a mountain peak. Freedom tells a story of liberation from a narrow place, exploring how we can each choose freedom.

It’s the story of the biblical exodus, set in the colorful desert of the American southwest: the painted desert rock and bright sunrise that seems sure to signal liberation. It asks us to think about how tightly we are truly bound. When we recognize the room we have to make our own decisions, we’re called on to choose personal liberation as much as we can, so we may share our freedom with those who are still bound. 

Are we captives in heavy chains?
In bitter bondage in a narrow place
With burning tears, oppressive pain
What would we do if we weren’t constrained?

Say my name
I’m free to give any answer I imagine  
Say my name
I’m free to choose
Hear a voice
Do you answer with intention?
Hear the call
You’re free to choose

Find your freedom in this narrow place
Find your freedom in this narrow place

Find your freedom
Find your freedom
Find your freedom
Find your freedom

Darkness holds us tight
But there can be new birth after this deadly night
Ahead of us is an unknown road
A flame of truth will take us home

There’s a path leading toward a brighter future
Look ahead
You’re free to choose
There’s a way to a place where we can see the sun rise
Choose the path toward the highest peak

Claim your freedom, leave this narrow place
Claim your freedom, leave this narrow place
 
Claim your freedom
Claim your freedom
Claim your freedom
Claim your freedom

Daybreak, desert dawn
Joyful voices, a morning song
Reach out to the people still in chains
There’s no true freedom until everyone is saved

Hear the voices calling out for freedom
Hear the call
You’re free to choose
We can build a better world
We have power to shape the future
Lift your voice and share your freedom songs

Share your freedom, make the world a better place
Share your freedom, make the world a better place

Share your freedom
Share your freedom
Share your freedom
Share your freedom

Find your freedom
Claim your freedom
Share your freedom
Find your freedom
