Dagens låt


Tidig morgon. Stockholm gnuggar sömnen ur ögonen. Jag springer längs Söder Mälarstrand. Bara jag. Staden ligger där framme och glimmar. Så hör jag Nina Simone i mina lurar. Det är en stund av lycka. Av frihet. Jag ger den till er:

I wish I knew how
It would feel to be free
I wish I could break
All the chains holding me
I wish I could say
All the things that I should say
Say ’em loud say ’em clear
For the whole round world to hear
I wish I could share
All the love that’s in my heart
Remove all the bars
That keep us apart
I wish you could know
What it means to be me
Then you’d see and agree
That every man should be free

I wish I could give
All I’m longin’ to give
I wish I could live
Like I’m longin’ to live
I wish I could do
All the things that I can do
And though I’m’m way over due
I’d’d be starting a new

Well I wish I could be
Like a bird in the sky
How sweet it would be
If I found I could fly
Oh I’d’d soar to the sun
And look down at the sea
Than I’d sing cos I know – yea
Then I’d sing cos I know – yea
Then I’d sing cos I know
I’d’d know how it feels
Oh I’d know how it feels to be free
