Lyrics

Break Away

Verse:
You know the life I'm living,
Has been good to me,
But you know I want so much more.
Every single day's the same,
When the alarm clock rings.
I get up and I start another day.

Verse:
I'm working for a job that's stale,
Where the challenge is gone
It's only the money that makes me stay.
If I tried to change my ways,
Along with everything I know,
Could I find a better life to live?


Sub Chorus:
Everyday I wonder.
Everyday I wonder; how I ever got this far?


Refrain:
I wanna break away and get away
And see what I can be.
I wanna break away and get away
And do it just for me.

Verse:
I've got to face the fact,
Of who I am.
And then, I'll finally understand.
I've got the wife and kids,
A house and a car;
And because of that, I'm a better man.

Sub Chorus:
Everyday I wonder.
Everyday I wonder; how I ever got this far?

Refrain:
I wanna break away and get away
And see what I can be.
I wanna break away and get away
And do it just for me.

SOLO


Bridge:
I'm stuck in a rut and due for a change.
What am I supposed to do?
Just compromise my way through.

Refrain (x2):
I wanna break away and get away
And see what I can be.
I wanna break away and get away
And do it just for me.
