​Take Your Freedom

This song is by Elkie Brooks and appears on the album Minutes (1984).

I'm so sad to hear
After all these years
She's gone her way
You're on your way now

Who was it did the dirty
Does it matter anyhow
But you can't go living on pipe dreams
When it gives you hell living on your own
And why hang on when there's nothing left
And you and I know you gave your best

Take your freedom and smile, be happy
Take your freedom and try your hand
It's impossible the second time around
Don't fool yourself, it's not the same
You can't regain a feeling if it's gone

I guess you see the kids
Maybe once a week
Breaks your heart in two
When you remember what it was like
Tightknit family unit
Everything seemed so right
Now that the shouting is over
You talk instead of fight

Time to leave, give yourself a break
You're torn between this love and hate
And you're scared to death 'cause you just don't know
If it's right or wrong to get up and go

Take your freedom and smile, be happy
Take your freedom and try your hand
It's impossible the second time around
Don't fool yourself, it's not the same
You can't regain a feeling if it's gone

Nice to keep the memories
Of good times you had before
Frustrations that made your mind up
You couldn't take any more
On the losing end of a stupid game
Till you turn it round and you start again

Take your freedom and smile, be happy
Take your freedom and try your hand
It's impossible the second time around
Don't fool yourself, it's not the same
You can't regain a feeling if it's gone

Oh, take your freedom
Take it while you can
Don't lose out on a good thing, baby
Take it, take it, take it while you can
Take it while you can
Take your freedom
Take your freedom
