Once there was only a girl
She couldn't see the weight of the world
With a veil over her eyes
She lived in her own paradise

She moved to the city one day
Searching for something, she couldn't say
Pain and strife all around,
Weighing her down

Home and free she longs to be again

Awake in the night she lay
Sounds of the street just won't go away
Felt the call, like a bell through the fog
To return to where she belonged

On a train, with the rise of the sun
Fluorescent lights fade one by one
Through the window, a field catches fire
She feels so strong her true desire

Home and free she longs to be again

She returned back through the front door
And saw all the faces she knew before
But something changed deep inside
She found the peace that never dies

Home and free she knows she can be all the time
Wherever she goes
Home and free she'll always be.
