Break down
Break down
Break down

[Verse 1]
I was scared to death I was losing my mind
Break down
I couldn’t close my eyes I was pacing all night
I think I found the light out the end of the tunnel
I couldn’t find the truth I was going under

But I won’t hide inside
I gotta get out, gotta get out
Gotta get out, gotta get out
Lonely inside and light the fuse
Light it now, light it now, light it now


[Chorus]
And now I will start living today
Today, today I close the door
I got this new beginning and I will fly
I’ll fly like a cannonball
Like a cannonball
Like a cannonball
I’ll fly, I’ll fly, I’ll fly like a cannonball

[Verse 2]
Freedom
I let go of fear and the peace came quickly
Freedom
I was in the dark and then it hit me
I chose suffering and pain in the falling rain
I know, I gotta get out into the world again

But I won’t hide inside
I gotta get out, gotta get out
Gotta get out, gotta get out
Lonely inside and light the fuse
Light it now, light it now, light it now

[Chorus]
And now I will start living today
Today, today I close the door
I got this new beginning and I will fly
I’ll fly like a cannonball
Like a cannonball
Like a cannonball
I’ll fly, I’ll fly, I’ll fly like a cannonball

[Bridge]
Break down
I was scared to death I was losing my mind
Break down
I gotta get out into the world again

[Outro]
And now I will start living today
Today, today I close the door
I got this new beginning and I will fly
I’ll fly like a cannonball
Like a cannonball
Like a cannonball
I’ll fly, I’ll fly, I’ll fly like a cannonball
Like a cannonball
Like a cannonball
I’ll fly, I’ll fly, I’ll fly like a cannonball

    I love lea michelle since glee started, her and Cory were the best couple ever in the show and in real life. I am so proud of her because she, as well as everyone else, suffered a really big loss with Cory's unexpected death but she still got up and released her album. I cried for so much time and I didn't even know him in person so imagine how hard it was for her to get past this. I know how it heels like to lose a loved one and it is one of the worse things a person can ever feel. I wish Lea Michelle the best of luck with this and any other project she has in life. I loved her voice since I first heard it (in glee) and it is beautiful. I am like her #1fan not because I know everything about her but because I love her, her music, and because I am such a gleek. I feel like all of her music has such a strong meaning and somehow connect with Cory. We all love Lea Michelle and will also always have Cory in our hearts, And hope she knows that Cory is so proud of her from were ever he is now.
