The Box Tops I Shall Be Released

They say everything can be replaced

This every distance is not near

So I remember every face

Of every man who put me here

I see my light come shining

From the west down to the east

Any day now, any day now

I shall be released

They say every man needs protection

They say every man must fall

Yet I swear I see my reflection

Some place so high above this wall

I see my light come shining

From the west down to the east

Any day now, any day now

I shall be released

Standing next to me in this lonely crowd

Is a man who swears he’s not to blame

All day long I hear him shout so loud

Crying out that he was framed

I see my light come shining

From the west down to the east

Any day now, any day now

I shall be released

I see my light come shining

From the west down to the east

Any day now, any day now

I shall be released

Any day now, any day now

I shall be released
