I wish I could share all the love in my heart Remove all the bars that still keep us apart. I wish you could know what it means to be me, Then you'd see and agree ev'ry man should be free. 3. I wish I could give all I'm long - ing to give I wish I could live like I'm longing to live. I wish I could do all the things I can do, Though I'm way overdue I'd be starting a new. 4. I wish I could be like a bird in the sky How sweet it would be if I found I could fly. I'd soar to the sun and look down at the sea, Then I'd sing 'cause I'd know how it feels to be free.
