Beyonce – Freedom (International Day Of The Girl Video)

Smoke alarms on the back of us
Cause I need freedom too!
[Chorus: Beyoncé]

I’m telling these tears, "Go and fall away, fall away"
And when they carve my name inside the concrete
[Verse 1: Beyoncé]
What you want from me?
[Outro: Kendrick Lamar]
I can’t move Freedom! Freedom!

Freedom! Where are you? Freedom!
Lord forgive me, I’ve been runnin’
Where are you? Freedom! Freedom!
May the last one burn into flames

[Verse 2: Beyoncé]
[Verse 3: Kendrick Lamar]

Five-O askin’ me what’s in my possession
Yeah, open our mind as we cast away oppression
Breathe for me, sing for me
Tryna rain, tryna rain on the thunder
Painting white flags blue

Cause a winner don’t quit on themselves
Yeah, open the streets and watch our beliefs
Won’t let my freedom rot in hell
Six headlights wavin’ in my direction

[Pre-Chorus: Beyoncé]
Cause I need freedom too!
I’ma riot, I’ma riot through your borders
Cause I need freedom too!
Freedom! Freedom! Where are you?
Tell the sweet I’m new
But mama, don’t cry for me, ride for 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.
Wicked, my spirit inspired me
Tell the deep I’m new
Honestly guidin’ me
What you want from me?
Tell the tide, "Don’t move"
Freedom! Freedom! I can’t move
Cause a winner don’t quit on themselves
[Pre-Chorus: Beyoncé]
I’ma wade, I’ma wave through the waters

I’ma rain, I’ma rain on this bitter love
Cause a winner don’t quit on themselves
Seven misleadin’ statements ’bout my persona
Eight blocks left, death is around the corner
Hey! I’ma keep running
Won’t let my freedom rot in hell
Freedom, cut me loose!
I pray it forever reads
Freedom, cut me loose!

Yeah, I keep runnin’, jump in the aqueducts
Runnin’ blind in truth
Freedom! I can’t move Freedom!
I break chains all by myself
Try for me, live for me
Oh father can you hear me? Is it truth you seek?
Running blind in truth
Tell the storm I’m new
I’ma walk, I’ma march on the regular
Hey! I’ma keep running
Is it truth you seek? Oh father can you hear me?
I break chains all by myself
May the last one burn into flames
I break chains all by myself
Hear me out
Call me bulletproof
I could be more than I gotta be
Stole from me, lied to me, nation hypocrisy
Lord forgive me, I’ve been running
Like yeah, open correctional gates in higher desert
I’ma wade, I’ma wave through your shallow love
[Chorus: Beyoncé]

Freedom, cut me loose!
Hey! I’ma keep running
[Spoken: Hattie White]
Code on me, drive on me
[Chorus: Beyoncé]
I’m telling these tears, "Go and fall away, fall away"
Ten Hail Marys, I meditate for practice
Fire hydrants and hazardous
Won’t let my freedom rot in hell
Channel 9 news tell me I’m movin’ backwards
