Beyonce – Freedom (International Day Of The Girl Video)


Won’t let my freedom rot in hell
Lord forgive me, I’ve been running
Honestly guidin’ me
I’ma keep running Hey!
Painting white flags blue
[Verse 3: Kendrick Lamar]
Cause I need freedom too!
I break chains all by myself
I break chains all by myself
I’ma riot, I’ma riot through your borders
[Verse 1: Beyoncé]
Is it truth you seek? Oh father can you hear me?
I’ma rain, I’ma rain on this bitter love
Yeah, open the streets and watch our beliefs
Cause a winner don’t quit on themselves
[Chorus: Beyoncé]
Freedom, cut me loose!
Hey! I’ma keep running
Tryna rain, tryna rain on the thunder
Yeah, I keep runnin’, jump in the aqueducts
Cause I need freedom too!
I could be more than I gotta be

I’ma wade, I’ma wave through the waters
Channel 9 news tell me I’m movin’ backwards
What you want from me?
Runnin’ blind in truth
[Outro: Kendrick Lamar]

Six headlights wavin’ in my direction

Freedom! Where are you? Freedom!
I’m telling these tears, "Go and fall away, fall away"
Freedom! Freedom! I can’t move
Cause a winner don’t quit on themselves
And when they carve my name inside the concrete

Tell the sweet I’m new
Yeah, open our mind as we cast away oppression
I break chains all by myself
May the last one burn into flames
Won’t let my freedom rot in hell
[Spoken: Hattie White]
Like yeah, open correctional gates in higher desert
Lord forgive me, I’ve been runnin’
Freedom, cut me loose!
[Pre-Chorus: Beyoncé]

Tell the storm I’m new
Five-O askin’ me what’s in my possession
May the last one burn into flames
I pray it forever reads
Freedom! Where are you? Freedom!
Hey! I’ma keep running
Is it truth you seek? Oh father can you hear me?
I was served lemons, but I made lemonade I had my ups and downs, but I always find the inner strength to pull myself up.
I’ma wade, I’ma wave through your shallow love
I’ma walk, I’ma march on the regular
Running blind in truth
Freedom, cut me loose!

Seven misleadin’ statements ’bout my persona
I’m telling these tears, "Go and fall away, fall away"
Wicked, my spirit inspired me
Eight blocks left, death is around the corner
Ten Hail Marys, I meditate for practice
Freedom! Freedom! I can’t move
Smoke alarms on the back of us
Code on me, drive on me
Cause I need freedom too!

I can’t move Freedom! Freedom!
Breathe for me, sing for me
Won’t let my freedom rot in hell
What you want from me?

Stole from me, lied to me, nation hypocrisy
Where are you? Freedom! Freedom!
Hear me out
Tell the deep I’m new
Cause a winner don’t quit on themselves
Tell the tide, "Don’t move"
[Chorus: Beyoncé]

[Chorus: Beyoncé]
[Pre-Chorus: Beyoncé]

Call me bulletproof
But mama, don’t cry for me, ride for me
[Verse 2: Beyoncé]
Try for me, live for me
Fire hydrants and hazardous
