If I Were Free

(Steve Einhorn & Kate Power)
written by Jesse Winchester
If I were free, what I would do
I'd run & lock myself away with you
I'd turn a ring into a key
Oh, I know that's what I would do
If I were free

If I were strong, I would be so wild
I would be strong enough to love you like a child
I'd turn a flower into a song
Oh, I know that's what I would do
If I were strong

If I were wise then I would see
What makes you love a foolish man like me
I'd stand by you, just like a tree
Oh, I know that's what I would do
I would chain myself to you
I would never leave this room
If I were free

A line of birds across the sun
Darlin' it's my fate to follow on the run
But this runnin's not for me
I would never run again
If I were free

And here's just what I would do
I would chain myself to you
I would never run again
If I were free
