Lyrics

Free to Believe

Written By: Swinford/Fann

FREE TO BELIEVE
- female version -

Verse 1
Cap gun in a plastic holster, crayon picture for a wanted poster
Taped on my tree-house door
I was the sheriff of my neighborhood chasin’ robbers, thieves and crooks
As I rode on my two-wheeled horse
I kept the peace 'til suppertime when Mom would call for me
Then I'd get back to fighting crime, I was free to believe
Free to believe

Verse 2
Warm May night beneath a full moon, smell of vinyl and rose perfume
On a quiet country road
We made promises we wouldn’t keep as our shadows danced across the seat
'Bout golden bands and growin' old
I was only seventeen, but as far as I could see
That first boy was everything, I was free to believe
Free to believe

Chorus 1
In fairy tales and doin' right
In lovin' big and summer nights
In justice, and Jesus, and seizing the day
In my own way
I was free, free to believe

Verse 3
Then some years crawled and others soared; I lost a friend in the Iraq war
And realized how lucky I'd been
Never once thought twice 'bout being safe, growing up in that time and place
Free to hope and free to dream
And when reality got to hitting hard, I could always hit my knees
Pray to God or wish on stars, 'cause I was free to believe
Free to believe

Chorus 2
In fairy tales and doin' right
In lovin' big and summer nights
In justice, and Jesus, and seizing the day
Like any kid in the USA
I was free, free to believe
