These are the lyrics to the Nina Simone song we sang on stage at the Achuapa festival.

I wish I knew how it feels to be free

I wish I could break all the chains holding me

I wish I could say all the things I should say

Say them loud, say them clear, for the whole world to hear.

I wish I could share all the love in my heart

Remove all the bars that still keep us apart

I wish you could know what it means to be my

Than you´d see, and agree, every man should be free.

I wish I could give all I´m longing to give

I wish I could live how I´m longing to live

I  wish I could do all the things I can do

Though I´m way overdue, I´d be starting anew.

I wish I could be like a bird in the sky

How sweet it would be if I found I could fly!

I´d soar to the sun, and look down on the sea

Than I´d sing, cause I´d know how it feels to be FREE!
