2000 and later
Well I'm 30 something an a woman baby
And the journey's been oh so long
I'm 30 something and a child baby
but I'm feeling mighty strong
I'm living on my own again
I don't know if I'll find a lover and if so when
Maybe I won't and maybe I will
But I've paid my share of the heartache bill

And I've come to believe that despair and joy are one in the same my love
because passion flows from a fountain pen and can never get enough
never get enough
never get enough
never get enough
never get enough

Did you get enough?
Did you get enough?

And I've come to believe that to win and lose
is one in the same to me
Cause we all fight the silent war in the struggle to be free, to be free
to be free, to be free
yeah! to be free!

Some they say I'm crazy
Well crazy then I'll be
Cause I'd rather live insanely
Than live a life that's not for me

No I'm not angry, I'm not mad
I'm not bitching about what I should a had
I'm just 30 Something and I'm feeling free
No chains wrapped around my feet
I'm 30 Something and I'm doin' fine
I don't need a lover to hold me tight
to be happy, no
to be happy

An I've come to believe that a fantasy can be a calling in itself
So dust your jeans off baby and grab your dreams up off the shelf
There's a lot for you as a woman to do
And there's so much more to see
Oh yeah, we're on the struggle to be free
Oh yeah, I'm on the struggle to be free!
