Lyrics

Just like a birdie (umm) I just want to fly free. (so high so high)
And own a piece of land (umm) somewhere (somewhere somewhere somewhere)
Somewhere off in the country.

(oh listen)

Yo I luv this song! Movie good too. ~Jerzy Mami~
I love this song it reminds me of my uncle i dedicate this song to him :) to my uncle randy in prison i love him so much:))
This song goes deep. I've never been in a situation like the one explained in this song; however I am a mother and I can only imagine the pain and hurt a mom or any convicted person experience when they lose their freedom and dignity. Especially when it not expected. It's like death on earth. When I pass federal and state institutions my heart goes out to those locked away from friends and family. I have cried so much on this song just listening to the words.
Soundtrack of the movie life good movie and song
I can dig it.
Somebody gave me Life
Just wanna fly free
Hopes and Dreams I will never see
Somebody den done me wrong
Everything I hope for is gone

This song, in my mind and heart I have a huge livrary of songs, this song will be with me forever in my heart. One of the most traumatic events in my life, all I could do is listen to this song over and over and over again. Its been around 13 years now since that moment, and when I hear this song I cant explain the feeling when it rushes me back to that day. Some of the most pain I've ever experienced in my life. Changed me forever. I was froze and numb while this song was playing. All
this is a good song ;-)

These words are completely inaccurate and make absolutely no sense. There should be a way to correct the wrong lyrics. I love the song...
