Beyonce – Freedom (International Day Of The Girl Video)

[Chorus: Beyoncé]

I’m telling these tears, "Go and fall away, fall away"

[Chorus: Beyoncé]
Tell the sweet I’m new
Yeah, open the streets and watch our beliefs
Five-O askin’ me what’s in my possession
I’ma riot, I’ma riot through your borders
Runnin’ blind in truth
[Spoken: Hattie White]

Seven misleadin’ statements ’bout my persona
Won’t let my freedom rot in hell
[Outro: Kendrick Lamar]
Like yeah, open correctional gates in higher desert
I break chains all by myself
Cause a winner don’t quit on themselves
I’ma keep running Hey!
Hear me out
Tell the deep I’m new
I’ma walk, I’ma march on the regular
Call me bulletproof

Oh father can you hear me? Is it truth you seek?

Tryna rain, tryna rain on the thunder
Freedom! Freedom! Where are you?

Yeah, open our mind as we cast away oppression
Yeah, I keep runnin’, jump in the aqueducts
Freedom! Freedom! Where are you?
[Verse 3: Kendrick Lamar]
Lord forgive me, I’ve been runnin’
[Verse 2: Beyoncé]
Stole from me, lied to me, nation hypocrisy
I’ma wade, I’ma wave through the waters
I’m telling these tears, "Go and fall away, fall away"
Cause I need freedom too!
I had my ups and downs, but I always find the inner strength to pull myself up. I was served lemons, but I made lemonade
Tell the storm I’m new
Ten Hail Marys, I meditate for practice
Freedom! Freedom! I can’t move
I can’t move Freedom! Freedom!

Won’t let my freedom rot in hell
I’ma wade, I’ma wave through your shallow love
I break chains all by myself

Cause I need freedom too!

Freedom! Where are you? Freedom!
I break chains all by myself
Freedom, cut me loose!
Breathe for me, sing for me

Cause I need freedom too!
Channel 9 news tell me I’m movin’ backwards
And when they carve my name inside the concrete
Fire hydrants and hazardous
Oh father can you hear me? Is it truth you seek?
Freedom, cut me loose!
[Verse 1: Beyoncé]
Lord forgive me, I’ve been running
[Pre-Chorus: Beyoncé]
Tell the tide, "Don’t move"
Hey! I’ma keep running
Running blind in truth
Freedom, cut me loose!
May the last one burn into flames
Cause a winner don’t quit on themselves
Freedom! Freedom! I can’t move
I’ma rain, I’ma rain on this bitter love
I pray it forever reads
Eight blocks left, death is around the corner
[Pre-Chorus: Beyoncé]
I could be more than I gotta be
Honestly guidin’ me
[Chorus: Beyoncé]
Code on me, drive on me
Won’t let my freedom rot in hell
Smoke alarms on the back of us
But mama, don’t cry for me, ride for me
What you want from me?
May the last one burn into flames
Wicked, my spirit inspired me
Six headlights wavin’ in my direction
Try for me, live for me
I’ma keep running Hey!
Painting white flags blue
What you want from me?
Cause a winner don’t quit on themselves
