A New Favorite

Shawn McDonald is an artist who's songs I've been adding to my iTunes list recently. He's got a few songs that have been pretty meaningful to me lately. This song, Free, has been particularly meaningful, as it NAILS how I've been feeling for a while now. It's not often that a song speaks so directly to my heart, but this one does. Check it out!

FREE
By Shawn McDonald

I feel like the weight of the world is all - crashing down on me
And some how I just don’t believe this how - it is suppose to be
And all this expectation on - the way I’m suppose to live
Becomes my minds distraction - with nothing left to give

You said your burden is light and your load - is no more
You said your ways are right and in you I would soar

I want to be free - free to dance and free to sing
Free to live and love and free
Oh, free to be me

I feel like my heart is being beat - down into the ground
In you I’m longing for some peace - to be found
I know the heaviness that’s - making me cold
Is stealing my youthful soul and - making me old

You said your burden is light and your load - is no more
You said your ways are right and in you I would soar

I want to be free - free to dance and free to sing
Free to live and love and free
Oh, free to be me
