Troy:
We're soarin', flying
There's not a star in heaven
That we can't reach


Gabriella:
If we're trying
So we're breaking free

Troy:
You know the world can see us
In a way that's different than who we are


Gabriella:
Creating space between us
'Till we're separate hearts

Both:
But your faith it gives me strength
Strength to believe

Chorus #1
Troy:
We're breakin' free

Gabriella:
We're soarin'

Troy:
Flyin'

Both:
There's not a star in heaven
That we can't reach

Troy:
We're trying

Both:
But we're breaking free

Troy:
Oh, we're breakin' free

Gabriella:
Ohhhh

Troy:
Can you feel it building
Like a wave the ocean just can't control

Gabriella:
Connected by a feeling
Ohhh, in our very souls

Troy:
Very souls,
Ooooh,

Both:
Rising 'till it lifts us up
So every one can see

Troy:
We're breakin' free

Gabriella:
We're soarin'

Troy: Flyin'

Both:
There's not a star in heaven
That we can't reach

Troy:
If we're trying
But're breaking free

Gabriella:
Ohhhh runnin'

Troy:
Climbin'
To get to that place

Both:
To be all that we can be

Troy:
Now's the time

Both:
So breaking free

Troy:
So breaking free

Gabriella:
Ohhh, yeah

Troy:
More than hope
More than faith

Gabriella:
This is true
This is fate
And together

Both:
We see it comin'

Troy:
More than you
More than me

Gabriella:
Not a want, but a need

Both:
Both of us breakin' free

Gabriella:
Soarin'

Troy:
Flyin'

Both:
There's not a star in heaven
That we can't reach
If we're trying

Troy:
Yeah we're breaking free

Gabriella:
Breaking free
Were runnin'

Troy:
Ohhhh, climbin'

Both:
To get to the place
To be all that we can be
Now's the time

Troy:
Now's the time

Gabriella:
So we're breaking free

Troy: Ohhh, we're breaking free

Gabriella: Ohhhh

Both:
You know the world can see us
In a way that's different than who we are

    They once sang together but they think their friends will laugh. The message is to be who you are and don't be afraid to show who you really are

    We have to spread our wings in order to fulfill our dreams

    Reach for our dreams!!!

    Think breaking free is all about breaking free from society's limitations, and being all that you can be. Troy and gabriella have separate worlds- gabriella is a geek and troy is a sports guy- but their worlds collide through the music and beauty of the song. They just want to be together, break free from everyone else and soar

    Being free to be be the real you inside without fear of judgment

    Just be who you are and don't think of what will others say...
