Francesca Battistelli is one of my new favorite singers. I love her song Free to be Me. It’s simple, beautiful, and so, so true. If you haven’t listened to her music, you can check it out at www.francescamusic.com

The lyrics to Free to be Me are:

At twenty years of age
I’m still looking for a dream
A war’s already waged for my destiny
But You’ve already won the battle
And You’ve got great plans for me
Though I can’t always see

(Chorus)
‘Cause I got a couple dents in my fender
Got a couple rips in my jeans
Try to fit the pieces together
But perfection is my enemy
On my own I’m so clumsy
But on Your shoulders I can see
I’m free to be me

When I was just a girl
I thought I had it figured out
My life would turn out right,
and I’d make it here somehow
But things don’t always come that easy
And sometimes I would doubt

(Chorus)

And you’re free to be you
Sometimes I believe that I can do anything
Yet other times I think I’ve got nothing good to bring
But You look at my heart and You tell me
That I’ve got all You seek
And it’s easy to believe

Even though
(Chorus)
