    I wish   I could  break  all these  chains   holding   me.

    I wish   I could  say   all the     things   I should  say,

    Say em   loud,   Say em  clear, for the  whole     world      to hear.

2.  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.
