Breakdown Lyrics

I've seen a man cry, I've seen a man shout out
Afraid of losing the woman he loves.
I've seen a woman lying to her man flat out
Bout who she's been with and where she was
I've seen 'em both fight, and try to figure it out
This fighting isn't going anywhere
I've seen a child's eyes
Watching his parents freak out.
I know they see him but they just don't care.

It won't stop if they don't stop yelling.
It's not the way of working your problems out.
I can't stand being around this yelling
So I'm finding my way out.

I'm gonna drive and never ever slow down.
I'm gonna drive until I break down.
Packing my things and getting out of this town.
I'm gonna drive until I break down.

I've seen a child's eyes.
I've seen him living in doubt.
Not ever knowing what it's like to be in love.
I've seen his friends trying
Just to help him get out
He never told them what the problem really was.
I've seen a suicide he could'nt figure it out
He blamed himself
Because they couldn't get along.
I've seen his parents' eyes trying to figure it out
Where did our baby go and what went wrong?

It won't stop if they don't stop yelling
It's not the way of working your problems out.
I can't stand being around this yelling
So I'm finding my way out.

I'm gonna drive and never ever slow down.
I'm gonna drive until I break down.
Packing my things and getting out of this town.
I'm gonna drive until I break down.

I'm gonna drive until I break down.
Hold it inside until I break down.
Not gonna try until I break down.
Save my goodbyes until I break down.
(baby c'mon)

(electirc guitar instrumental)

I'm gonna drive and never ever slow down.
I'm gonna drive until I break down.
Packing my things and getting out of this town.
I'm gonna drive until I break down.

I'm gonna drive and never ever slow down.
I'm gonna drive until I break down.
Packing my things and getting out of this town.
I'm gonna drive until I break down.

I'm gonna drive until I break down.
Hold it inside until I break down.
