about

The 3rd track on the Unstoppable album, “I Am Free”, focuses on maintaining perspective, resolving to let go of difficult experiences and finding hope. The song itself is an open window, from which a fluttering bird takes flight, eventually gaining perspective and finding peace. The 6/8-time signature and the ascending arpeggios lift the listener up, creating a wonderful sense of positive forward momentum, culminating in the realization “I am free.”

lyrics

Opened up a window and I flew through
Soared up to the rooftops for a better view
Lit upon a branch of the tallest tree
Taking my time hanging out with the leaves

Way up here I don’t have to hold on
Way up here I don’t have to hold on
I am free
Sail away on the breeze

Dove down to the depths of my despair
Pulled the anchor I am coming up for air

Way down here I don’t have to hold on
Way down here I don’t have to hold on
I am free
Sail away on the sea

When I come back to the place I was at
It looks different to me

Here I don’t have to hold on
Way up here I don’t have to hold on
I am free
