​Freedom

This song is by Anthony Hamilton and Elayna Boynton and appears on the movie soundtrack Django Unchained (2012).

Felt like the weight of the world was on my shoulders
Pressure to break or retreat at every turn
Facing the fear that the truth had discovered
No telling how, all these will work out
But I've come too far to go back now

I am looking for freedom, looking for freedom
And to find it cost me everything I have
Well I am looking for freedom, looking for freedom
And to find it may take everything I have

I know all too well it don't come easy
The chains of the world, they seem to move in tight
I try to walk around it, but stumbling's so familiar
Tryin' to get up but the doubt is so strong
There's gotta be a wind in my bones

I'm looking for freedom, looking for freedom
And to find it cost me everything I have
Well I'm looking for freedom, I'm looking for freedom
And to find it may take everything I have

Oh not giving up has always been hard (So hard)
But if I do things the easy way I won't get far

Mhm, life hasn't been very kind to me lately (Well)
But I suppose it's a push for moving on (Oh yeah)
In time the sun's gonna shine on me nicely (On me, yeah)
Somethin' tells me good things are coming
And I ain't gonna not believe

I'm looking for freedom, looking for freedom
And to find it cost me everything I have
Well I'm looking for freedom, I'm looking for freedom
And to find it may take everything I have
