I'm Free

Average song rating One of the three songs from Tommy which became a hit single, "I'm Free" is Tommy's triumphant declaration of having reached a higher plane. The song in the movie features a memorable performance by Roger Daltrey which is laden with Messianic images which, along with "Sensation", enables one to envision the disillusion to follow.

I'M FREE-I'm free,
And freedom tastes of reality,
I'm free-I'm free,
AN' I'm waiting for you to follow me.

If I told you what it takes
to reach the highest high,
You'd laugh and say 'nothing's that simple'
But you've been told many times before
Messiahs pointed to the door
And no one had the guts to leave the temple!

I'm free-I'm free
And freedom tastes of reality
I'm free-I'm free
And I'm waiting for you to follow me.


How can we follow?
How can we follow?
