George Michael
Freedom


I won't let you down, I will not give you up, Gotta have some faith in the sound
It's the one good thing that I've got, I won't let you down, So please don't give me up
Because I would really, really love to stick around.

Heaven knows I was just a young boy, Didn't know what I wanted to be
I was every little hungry schoolgirl's pride and joy
and I guess it was enough for me, to win the race, a prettier face,
Brand new clothes and a big fat place, On your rock and roll TV
but today the way I play the game is not the same, No way
Think I'm gonna get me some happy

I think there's something you should know, I think it's time I told you so
There's something deep inside of me, there's someone else I've got to be
Take back your picture in a frame, take back your singing in the rain
I just hope you understand, Sometimes the clothes do not make the man

All we have to do now, Is take these lies and make them true somehow
All we have to see, Is that I don't belong to you, and you don't belong to me,
Freedom - You've gotta give for what you take
Freedom - You've gotta give for what you take

Heaven knows we sure had some fun boy, What a kick just a buddy and me
We had every big shot good-time band on the run boy
We were living in a fantasy, We won the race, Got out of the place
I went back home got a brand new face, For the boys on MTV
But today the way I play the game has got to change, Oh yeah
Now I'm gonna get myself happy

I think there's something you should know, I think it's time I stopped the show
There's something deep inside of me, There's someone I forgot to be
Take back your picture in a frame, Don't think that I'll be back again
I just hope you understand, Sometimes the clothes do not make the man

All we have to do now, Is take these lies and make them true somehow
All we have to see, Is that I don't belong to you, and you don't belong to me
Freedom - You've gotta give for what you take
Freedom - You've gotta give for what you take

Well it looks like the road to heaven, But it feels like the road to hell
When I knew which side my bread was buttered, I took the knife as well
Posing for another picture, everybody's got to sell
But when you shake your ass, they notice fast
And some mistakes were built to last
That's what you get, I say that's what you get
That's what you get for changing your mind,
And after all this time, I just hope you understand
Sometimes the clothes, do not make the man

I'll hold on to my freedom, May not be what you want from me
Just the way it's got to be, lose the face now, I've got to live
