Empire Cast – Need Freedom Lyrics

Empire Cast – Need Freedom Lyrics

Too many guns on the streets
And my heart can’t take it no more
Like Stevie said, “Love’s in need.”
My heart cries out for Orlando
Philando, Alton, Sandra, Mike Brown
Garner, Trayvon, why?
Too many people gone too soon

Tell me how this happened
Where did we go wrong?
Say we stand together yet we choose to walk alone
Blood covers our streets
Hatred fills our home
Gotta get this message out before I’m dead and gone

We gotta make it better
Something’s gotta change
The world needs your voice just to make it through the rain
When I think of what’s goin’ on in this world
Oh, it hurts me to see my sister not free
My sister, my brother here with me

Need freedom
The world is cryin’, no more sirens with guns and violence
Need freedom
We can’t keep dyin’, we’re way too quiet, no more silence
Need freedom
Stop this evil, free my people, we’re all equal
Need freedom
The world gets brighter, keep on tryin’, keep on fightin’ for freedom

As I sit and think about
All that’s goin’ on
My soul just cries out

Can you tell me please?
Tell me who’s to blame
For causing all this pain?
The ones we call to help us
Turn and kill us everyday
See, war is not the answer
And love is what we need
Take the chains off,
Break the bondage
Set my people free

We gotta make it better
Something’s gotta change
The world needs your voice just to make it through the rain
When I think of what’s goin’ on in this world
Oh, it hurts me to see my sister not free
My sister, my brother here with me

Need freedom
The world is cryin’, no more sirens with guns and violence
Need freedom
We can’t keep dyin’, we’re way too quiet, no more silence
Need freedom
Stop this evil, free my people, we’re all equal
Need freedom
The world gets brighter, keep on tryin’, keep on fightin’ for freedom

Need freedom
The world is cryin’, no more sirens with guns and violence
Need freedom
We can’t keep dyin’, we’re way too quiet, no more silence
Need freedom
Stop this evil, free my people, we’re all equal
Need freedom
The world gets brighter, keep on tryin’, keep on fightin’ for freedom
