[Verse 1]
Grew up in a small town
And when the rain would fall down
I'd just stare out my window
Dreaming of what could be
And if I'd end up happy
I would pray (I would pray)

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

[Chorus]
I'll spread my wings and I'll learn how to fly
I'll do what it takes til' 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 loved

I'll take a risk
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway

[Verse 2]
Wanna feel the warm breeze
Sleep under a palm tree
Feel the rush of the ocean
Get onboard a fast train
Travel on an jet plane, far away (I will pray)
And breakaway

[Chorus]
I'll spread my wings and I'll learn how to fly
I'll do what it takes til' 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 loved
I gotta take a risk
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway

[Bridge]
Buildings with a hundred floors
Swinging with revolving doors
Maybe I don't know where they'll take me but
Gotta keep moving on, moving on
Fly away, breakaway

[Last Chorus (Different From Others)]
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, breakaway

    To me this song, is how someone feels like they don't belong where they were raised, hence, "wanted to belong here, but something felt so wrong here," and how one must do whatever it takes to find true happiness by being who they want. In order to do that, they have to breakaway from their "small town" and be someone grander and shine. However, you must not forget the people you love and the place you come from.

    I need to Break Away and I don't need to ever give up. I love this song because it shows how we can do so much and we just need to never give up. No matter what people say to us. We can do it no matter what. I like this song also because it fits perfectly in the movie The Princess Diaries. It shows how even though she didn't know she was a princess she gave it her all and at tje end she became queen of Genovia, she never gave up, she did loose hope but there were people behind her that believed in all that she could do and that she would make a great ruler. I love thiw song Breakaway.
