If you owned the mountains and all the land to the sea,
Would you give it all away so that others could be free?
If you held a heart and kept it captive in your own,
Have you the confidence to let it have the freedom to roam?
Every degree of freedom comes with a certain cost.
What would be the greatest thing that you wouldn’t want to be lost?
Did you think of love, was that the first on your mind?
Or, are you one of those who insist on love being redefined?
To love and to be merciful are both freedoms that can be enjoyed,
But not all are so lucky nor fanatics so mindfully inclined!
