  • Grew up in a small town
    And when the rain would fall down
    I'd just stare out my window
    Dreamin' of what could be
    And if I'd end up happy
    I would pray

    Trying hard to reach out
    But when I tried to speak out
    Felt like no one could hear me
    Wanted to belong here
    But something felt so wrong here
    So I pray
    I could breakaway

    I'll spread my wings, and I'll learn how to fly
    I'll do what it takes till I touch the sky
    And I'll make a wish
    Take a chance
    Make a change
    And breakaway
    Out of the darkness and into the sun
    But I won't forget all the ones that I love
    I'll take a risk
    Take a chance
    Make a change
    And breakaway

    Want to feel the warm breeze
    Sleep under a palm tree
    Feel the rush of the ocean
    Get on board a fast train
    Travel on a jet plane
    Faraway
    And breakaway

    I'll spread my wings, and I'll learn how to fly
    I'll do what it takes till I touch the sky
    And I'll make a wish, take a chance, make a change
    And breakaway
    Out of the darkness and into the sun
    I won't forget all the ones that I love
    I gotta take a risk, take a chance, make a change
    And breakaway

    Buildings with a hundred floors
    Swinging 'round revolvin' doors
    Maybe I don't know where they take me
    But gotta keep movin' on
    Movin' on
    Fly away
    Breakaway

    I'll spread my wings, and I'll learn how to fly
    Though it's not easy to tell you goodbye
    I gotta take a risk, take a chance, make a change
    And breakaway
    Out of the darkness and into the sun
    But I won't forget the place I come from
    I gotta take a risk, take a chance, make a change
    And breakaway
    Breakaway
