Coming


You always dreamed of waterfalls
Water streaming in the walls
Only daughter: Your mother calls
You say, "Coming"

Out with your girlfriend - no one there
She says, "Should we go where the boys are?"
You say, "I don't care" but you do and must remember not to stare
All you want to do is reach out
and touch her hair
She calls from the corner
You say, "I'm coming"

Your wedding day comes and goes
Hoping you'll forget
Another day, another cup of coffee,
Another cigarette
Whenever you make love you make
Another new regret
You say, "I'm coming"

So you do your job and you raise your kids
They fall in love with their boyfriends
Like you never did
And your life goes by like a prison bid
When the warden calls you say "I'm coming"
I'm coming out / I'm coming in
I'm coming / Coming

You wake up one morning,
The day of your release
Wond'ring who came in the nighttime and gave you this peace
And the fear and the questions,
Will they never cease
Will you ever know what it feels like
How it feels
Does it feel like Freedom?
Freedom Freedom Freedom Freedom Freedom Freedom Freedom Freedom
I'm coming out / I'm coming in
I'm coming / Coming
You step outside
Someone's talking about pride
You want to hide but you feel alive
Feel - God I feel alive

As the sun comes down it burns my skin
And it feels too good to wonder
What might have been
Till I hear a man spitting hatred
It dribbles down his chin
He's yelling, "God loves the sinner but he hates the sin"
And I turn and I tell him
Sin was never to have opened up my heart
I never spoke my name
I never knew what part was mine to play in this game
And I feel ashamed 'cause this is not a game
This is my life, my heart, my love
I am not to blame
But if you feel the need
I said if you feel the need to blame
Then blame it on freedom
Freedom / Blame it on freedom
Freedom Freedom Freedom Freedom Freedom Freedom Freedom
I'm coming out / I'm coming in
I'm coming / I'm coming
I'm coming out / I'm coming in
I'm coming / Coming / Coming
Coming feels like freedom
Freedom Freedom Freedom Freedom Freedom Freedom Freedom
