Nina Simone...again

I was listening to Nina Simone again, just sitting here waiting for class. Every once in a while, her songs just hit me...this time was one of them. I love when that happens. When you suddenly hear a whole meaning behind a song, not just the beat, or the chorus, but the whole song has more meaning than it did just two minutes before. It's amazing. Anyway (and I know this is really getting into 17 yr old emo-girl style blogging), but here are the lyrics to the song I was listening to(minus the last verse which I didn't like as much):

And I wish I knew how
It would feel to be free
I wish that I could break
All the chains holding me
I wish I could say
All the things that Id like to say
Say em loud say em clear
For the whole round world to hear
I wish I could share
All the love thats in my heart
Remove every doubt
It keeps us apart
And I wish you could know
What it means to be me
Then youd see and agree
Every man should be free

I wish I could live

Like Im longin to live
I wish I could give
What Im longin to give
And I wish I could do
All the things Id like to do
You know theyll still miss part of you
Yes sir...
And Im way way over due

Wow, you're right, we have been friends for a decade! I'll drink to that with you (after Lent, of course)!
