"Free Me"
Martin Kahnberg

Music & Lyrics: Martin Kahnberg

Lyrics

I left my home - I was down and depressed
Went far away - I was looking for fun
I lost my way - I could never return
So far away that my land was far from known

I met a man - whitebearded and old
He gave me a hint

"You'd better free me - my life's going away
You'd better free me - I'll teach you in the way
You'd better free me - my wisdom's too great
You'd better free me - I'm your only chance"

He spoke to me - he was offering his help
I tried to see what was lying behind
Had no idea what my life would turn into
I helped the man - he seemed thankful and friendly

He taught me much - both magic and staff
He knew plenty of things

"You had to free me - your quest needed my help
You had to free me - your danger was too great
And now you've freed me - I'll aid you in your trial
I'll have to free thee - unless you want to die!"

I left his house - skilled and prepared
For what destiny had planned

I had to free him - he was my only hope
He had to free me - the curse was almost through
I knew the answer - it just had to be true
I've got to feel free - my country's only hope
