Song Lyrics

We’ve got 18 very special guests with us tonight
18 prisoners of conscience released because of Amnesty International
Song called, I Shall Be Released, says it all, really

Woo-hoo, woo-hoo

They say a man, he needs protection
The say a man, he must fall
Yet I swear I see my reflection, mmm
We’re so high above the wall

I see my light come shining

From the west unto the east

Any day now, any way now

I shall be released, (South Africa)

They say everything can be replaced
Yet every distance is not near
So I remember every face
Of every man that put me here

I see my light come shining

From the west unto the east

Any day now, any way now

I shall be released, (South Africa)

Standing next to me in this lonely crowd

Is a man who swears he’s not to blame

Day and night I hear him screaming out so loud

Screaming out that he was framed
Oh yes

I see my light come shining

From the west unto the east

Any day now, any way now

I shall be released

They say every man needs protection
The say every man must fall
But I swear I see my reflection
Somewhere so high above this wall

I see my light come shining

From the west unto the east

Any day now, any way now

I shall be released

They shall be, they shall be
They shall be released

Thank you, goodnight

They shall be, they shall be
They shall be released
