He won't tell her what is going on
He won't tell her what is going on
Well try'o try o, lie'o lie o
He won't tell her what is going on

You may think that he's a demolition expert
When he's finished with your self-esteem
It may be true we all need knockig down a few
Come find shelter or your shelter with me, with me
Breakaway

She don't like to disturb the peace
Became attached to the weak at least
She's got, diamonds to show for it
That tree of gold for it
She don't like to disturb the peace

You may think that he's a master of disguise
You lost your dignity you compromised
It may be true we all need knocking down a few
Come find shelter oh your shelter with me, with me

Breakaway oh, Breakaway oh, Breakaway oh, Breakaway oh
Breakaway oh, Breakaway oh, Breakaway oh, Breakaway oh
Breakaway oh, Breakaway oh, Breakaway oh, Breakaway oh
Breakaway oh, Breakaway oh, Breakaway oh, Breakaway oh

You may think that he's a demolition expert
When he's finished with your self-esteem
It may be true we all need knocking down a few
Come find shelter oh your shelter with me, with me

Breakaway, Breakaway

    To me, this song could be interpreted in a couple of ways. In my mind, I see George writing this from his perspective of seeing someone's relationship gone wrong. It sounds like this girl is in a relationship with a man who's hiding things from her often (I'm interpreting as him cheating on her). He keeps hiding the truth and making up lies so this girl won't find out but all he's doing is destroying her and demolishing her self-esteem. This girl is a truly amazing girl with a lot of potential, thus explaining the line "She's got diamonds to show for it that tree of gold for it". But, as much as she is an amazing girl that does't deserve to be put in a dilemma like this one, she is emotionally weak and doesn't want to disturb the peace, or in other words she doesn't want to start conflict. "You may think that he's a master of disguise - you lost your dignity you compromised." This excerpt from the chorus talks about how she has now lost her dignity, again I'm making my own interpretation that she has now found out about him cheating and she has found out about all his lies. When Ezra chants "breakaway" throughout the song he is stating for her to get out of the foul relationship she is in and to breakaway from this guy who is backstabbing her, then he says "Come find shelter oh your shelter with me, with me" basically telling her to find a situation that comforts her and makes her feel alright, specifically a "situation" with him because he can help make her feel better.
