These Things I Want

I want to love
I want the one I've always longed for
I want the freedom and the choice
Give me him...
I want to love

I want to cry
I want the walls to crumble
I have the right to feel emotion
Give me pain...
I want to cry

These things I want
These things I need
I beg the world
Not out of greed

I want to breathe
I want the chosen off my back
I want privacy, I want respect
Give me space...
I want to breathe

These things I want
These things you hold
These blessed rights
Aren't mine I'm told

I want to pray
I want to feel His arms around me
I want that unconditional love
Give me God...
I want to pray

These things I want
These things you fear
I'll tread not on
What you endear

I want my life
I want resolve to be set free
I want the comfort and the joy
Give me peace...
I want my life

These things I want
These things I crave
To taste just one
Before my grave

I want my life
