Lyrics
I told myself
A thousand times
I was in the bathroom
when I caught my eyes

The person in front of me
Looked like a wannabe
The biggest lie
That has crossed my path

we don’t wanna be
happy and free
Is there a fight?
for our lives and for our rights

They made up a story
so convincingly
and threw it out for our eyes to see
We watched it all
with our eyes closed
and failed to see the conspiracy

we don’t wanna be
happy and free
Is there a fight?
for our lives and for our rights

The biggest nightmare
I could ever imagine
A god has betrayed us
but no one cares

They call you crazy
if you make an opinion
that’s a little different
then then the usual

we don’t wanna be
happy and free
Is there a fight?
for our lives and for our rights

Brave!
Always liked this song Magnus - the playing live at home sounds interesting. We've been going to some "house concerts" in a little town down the coast lately (have seen David Essig and Mad Violet amongst others - Mad Violet were amazingly good) and have really enjoyed the ambience. It's a large loungeroom (or in summer they have the show in the back yard) and people take a plate of food - very laid back.

Sorry to ramble, but what I'm getting at is that the feel of your song and performance is very warm and personal (it's also played and sung very well) in this context. You seem to have grown a lot in confidence over the last year or so. This is great.

Haven't heard
this song before, but I can't imagine a better performance. First off, it's a great song - I love the lyrics. The first two verses in particular are tremendous. Your guitar playing is nice throughout - good changes and nicely played. The thing that makes the song outstanding, however, is the vocal performance. There is warmth, vulnerability, and personality. Takes some courage to perform a song like this in an intimate setting, I would imagine. Nicely done. Beautiful stuff. Thanks for sharing. Peace.

Homegrown
Magnus - I love that homegrown and this song is one of my favorites. This is my kind of music. Melodic, interesting lyrics and a feeling that we are right there with you as you sing.

Warm.......
and friendly yet very,very sad = all the same I like the fine singing the lyrics & the 'unplugged' vibe here - remember Truth & opinion are two very different things.

Magnus!
This is a stunningly intimate performance... It really feels like I'm in the living room with you... Your playing is good, the time and pitch are strong, and your dynamics and vocal are outstanding... It all comes across as real rather than contrived...

I like this song more and more as I hear it more... I think you really delivered it in this performance...

One mic... wow...

Thank you!
Thank you ed! I don't know what the picture is.... It just had the tag "free will". And i think you are right that i delivered this performance was "the" performance. I have started to like the song again as well :D
