Lyrics Edit

(Cooper)
This night, nothing like any other night, can’t take anymore
You say I’ll never be nothing, cause us suffering, something to ignore

These things you say
You make me weak but I have changed
No way, I am stronger than before

(Cooper & Ledger)
I will break, breaking free, coming alive
I broke these chains, never be afraid to live my life (never be afraid to live my life)
Break, breaking free, one last time
No matter what they say, I will never change
And I know I can break (break) break (break)
Look out, I’m breaking free

(Sturm & Ledger)
This is who I am
You don’t understand, you never even try to swim
I think you’re listening
Drop defence, you stab and twist the knife

(Cooper, Sturm, & Ledger)
These things (these things) you say (you say)
They don’t hold me, I’m not your slave
No way, I’m stronger than before

(Cooper & Ledger)
I will break, breaking free, coming alive
I broke these chains, never be afraid to live my life (never be afraid to live my life)
Break, breaking free, one last time
No matter what they say, I will never change
And I know I can break (break) break (break)
Look out, I’m breaking free

(Cooper)
Overcome, chains undone
No fear can hold me down
I know I can rise above it
Overcome, chains undone
No fear can hold me down
I know I can rise above it

(Cooper & Ledger)
I will break, breaking free, coming alive
I broke these chains, never be afraid to live my life (never be afraid to live my life)
Break, breaking free, one last time
No matter what they say, I will never change

(Cooper & Sturm)
And I know I can break (break) break (break)
I will break (I will break)
Look out, I’m breaking free
I’m breaking free (breaking breaking, this is freedom, this is freedom)
I am breaking free
