Nina Simone – I Shall Be Released Lyrics

[Verse 1]
They say everything can be replaced
They say every distance is not near
So I remember every face
Of every man who put me here
[Chorus]
I see my light come shining
From the west unto the east
Any day now any day now
I shall be released
[Verse 2]
They say every man needs protection
They say every man must fall
So I swear I see my reflection
Some where instead these wall
[Chorus]
I see my light come shining
From the west unto the east
Any day now any day now
I shall be released
[Verse 3]
Yonder stands a man in this lonely crowd
A man who swears he's not to blame
All day long I hear him hollering so loud
Just crying out that he's not to blame
[Chorus]
I see the light come shining
From the west unto the east
Any day now any day now
I shall be released
