FOR FREE
[E. Maguire]
______________________________

The ancient rivers run dry
There's not enough space in the sky
But no-one owns the birds in the trees
They fly for free

I've got a thousand friends I never see
I can talk to anyone I please
But it's like some social disease
No friends know me

And it's a world of traders and thieves
Everything I want is what I need
And the wily salesman agrees
He smiles for free

But I know there's something sacred
In all the living things I see
And I know that it's a wonderful world
And yes it's all for free

So I'm a little dazed and confused
There's a billion stars I could choose
And you can buy the moon if you please
But she'll shine for free


But when a man of fortune is paid
For every bomb and bullet that's made
Who would turn a war into peace
When true love is for free

But I know there's something sacred
In all the living things I see
And I know that it's a wonderful world
And yes it's all for free
