    1. He Started To Sing

      He was a daytime sleeper
      He never would go much deeper
      Than his mother and dad expected
      Another one so neglected
      It was a blessing in disguise
      'Cause one day he opened up his eyes

    Chorus: And started to sing of love just to find it
    He started to sing his way to the light
    He was born with the master key
    To unlock a melody and make it right

      They told him to buckle down and pay attention
      They taught him to swallow his dreams and his ambitions
      So he followed their rules of life by intimidation
      To the point where he couldn't find an inspiration
      Then he began to wonder why
      And suddenly opened up his eyes
      Lyrics www.allthelyrics.com/lyrics/bill_champlin/
    Repeat Chorus

      He found it, a reason
      To open his wings and rise above his world of pain
      He knows it, he shows it
      And so he will sing of love

      Never again will he beg to be heard by the powers that be
      Never again will he change all his words, 'cause he's gotta be free
      He's been there before and he's learned to ignore what they want him to see
      He'll write down the truth and he'll sing it to you, you don't have to agree
      And no one will ever hold him down
      Because of the freedom that he found
    Repeat Chorus
