Liner Notes: 

To my mind, this would work best with music that's mysterious but not in a scary way -- if that makes sense.

Please contact me if you'd like to set these lyrics to music.


NOTE: wacha has turned this into a great song.


NOTE: The final verse’s lines 1 and 3 have to be sung a bit faster than the same lines in the other verses.

Broken Free

V. 1
As the lanterns glow
And the cobras dance
I mellow into a walking trance
Aroma of spice
And the beat of drums
I won’t be afraid
Of whatever comes
Won’t be afraid

V. 2
The diviner warns
She can sense a spell
Has a potion she’d be glad to sell
I can’t hide a smile
As the moon hangs low
I won’t be afraid
Of what I don’t know
Won’t be afraid
Won’t be afraid

I carried my fear
Till it almost buried me
Scared no more
I’ve broken
Broken free
I’ve broken free
I’ve broken free


V. 3
Meet a stranger who makes
The case that home
Isn’t where you’re from or a place you own
As the square fills up
And a chant begins
I won’t be afraid
To do anything
Won’t be afraid
Won’t be afraid
Won’t be afraid
Won’t be afraid

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

this would work either way..with a dark voodoo vibe or a light love potion number nine feel.

The repeating lines at verses end are really good. Cool lyrics

I love these! You have created an eerie, mysterious tone with them. I would love to play with these some if you're interested. May take me a while but we do have 89 days left.

Very cool. I look forward to hearing it put to music in a magical mystical way...

It has a beautiful flow. I didnt feel the dark . I felt more bounce, not exactly shanty but that meter. Mysterious yes.

You create a nice mood with your words. Interested to hear the song. But no pressure, I can wait
