Chorus 1
This is how it feels to be free
This is what it means to know that I am forgiven
This is how it feels to be free
To see that life can be more than I imagined
This is how it feels to be free
This is how it feels to be free yeeaah
Verse 1
There's a wall that has been standing
Since the day that Adam fell
Sin is where it started
Sin is why it held
Speaking as a prisoner
Who was there and lived to tell
I remember how it felt
I could hear the sound of freedom
Like a distant voice it called
And beckoned me to follow
Where I had never gone
Though my heart was willing
I just stood there at the wall
Praying somehow it would fall
But in a cross I found a doorway
And a hand that held the keys
When the chains fell at my feet
For the first time I could see
Verse 2
There are days when I'm reminded
Of the prison I was in
Living in a nightmare
Burning from within
I can feel the voice of evil
I can hear the call of sin
But I won't go back again
Once I tasted freedom
Then the walls could bind no more
Since mercy gave me wings to fly
Like an eagle I can soar
Bridge
Somewhere there's a prison
Where the chains still bind
There but for the grace of God
Those walls could still be mine
So for all the captives I say
Chorus 2
This is how it feels to be free
This is what it means to know that I am forgiven
This is how it feels to be free
To see that life can be more than I imagined
This is how it feels to be free
This is how it feels to be free
This is what it means to know that I am forgiven
This is how it feels to be free
To see that life can be more than I imagined
This is how it feels to be free
This is how it feels to be free yeah
This is how it feels to be free yeah
This is how it feels to be free
