Song of the Day : Freedom by Anthony Hamilton Feat. Elayna Boynton

As a lover of Corbucci and Leone movies I think that “Django unchained” is beyond amazing. Chapeau to mr. Tarantino.

Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) is the soundtrack to Quentin Tarantino’s motion picture Django Unchained. It was originally released on December 18, 2012. The soundtrack uses a variety of music genres, relying heavily on spaghetti western soundtrack.

Lyrics:

Felt like the weight of the world was on my shoulders
Pressure to break or retreat at every turn
Facing the fear that the truth, I discovered
No telling how, all these will work out
But I’ve come to far to go back now.

Chorus:
I am looking for freedom, looking for freedom
And to find it cost me everything I have
Well I am looking for freedom, looking for freedom
And to find it, may take everything I have

I know all too well it don’t come easy
the chains of the world they seem to movin’ tight
I try to walk around if I’m stumbling so familial
tryin’ to get up but the doubt is so strong
there’s gotta be a winning in my bones

Chorus:
I’m looking for freedom, looking for freedom
and to find it, cost me everything I have
Well I’m looking for freedom, I’m looking for freedom
And to find it, may take everything I have

Oh not giving up there’s always been hard, so hard
but if I do the thanks lase the way I won’t get far.

Mhm, life hasn’t been very kind to me lately, (well)

but I suppose it’s a push from moving on (oh yeah)
in time the sun’s gonna shine on me nicely (on me yeah )
somethin’ tells me good things are coming
and I ain’t gonna not believe

Chorus:
I’m looking for freedom, looking for freedom
and to find it, cost me everything I have
Well I’m looking for freedom, I’m looking for freedom
And to find it, may take everything I have
