One of my favorites of all time, from Elton John!
This part, when Elton sings it, is one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever heard; it’s about a man in prison:
“Just let me wake up in the morning
To the smell of new mown hay
To laugh and cry, to live and die
In the brightness of my day!
I want to hear the pealing bells
Of distant churches sing
But most of all. please free me from
This aching metal ring
And open up this cage toward the sun!”
