I defy the forces that deny
The life that I deserve
By the freedom of my voice
As I make the choice for me

Overdue the hope that is pursued
By taking out the thorns
That once held me back
I'll step into the place of my desire

What is freedom without free?
Life without the liberty?
To pursue what makes me smile
Without hurting those around?

What is mine is also yours
It's your heart open the door
Love will walk in let it stay
For the beauty of today

Overwhelmed events that have occured
Blinded by what we may not have learned
As the clock just keeps on clicking

You and I a journey til the end
By and by I know
We'll make a change and this life
will never ever be the same

It's your freedom let it ring
For the best of everything
As the world waits for it's turn
For the love that we all yearn

Take my hand and you will see
Just hold onto true beliefs
We will find a better way
For the beauty of today

The beauty is all around you
The faces that you see
The laughter from inside you
Is freedom
And liberty

Let my freedom touch you now
For the love that you have found
Hold on close don't let it go
By desire you will now
Rest assured that day'll come
What we do that will be done
That will never ever fade
For the beauty of today
For the beauty of today
For the beauty of today
For the beauty of today
