Halfway To Freedom - Lyrics by Barclay James Harvest, The


Lyrics

You - got to sing a new song
'cause the way that we're going
Is far too long
Alone, when you can't hear a sound
And you're halfway to freedom
It can't be found
But we've got the love
And the feeling's strong
And we're going on
And we can't go wrong
Halfway to freedom
Sing out the word
Tables are turning
We're learning
Our voice can be heard
Towers are falling
See how they burn
Hope for each other
Our brothers
All over the world

Love like a cry in the night
We reach out for each other
Peace to find
Hear, when the bells start to chime
And you're halfway to freedom
It's hard to find

Halfway to freedom
Sing out the word
Tables are turning
We're learning
Our voice can be heard
Towers are falling
See how they burn
Hope for each other
Our brothers
All over the world
