I want to break free
I want to break free

I want to break free from your lies

You’re so self satisfied I don’t need you

I’ve got to break free

God knows, God knows I want to break free

I’ve fallen in love

I’ve fallen in love for the first time

And this time I know it’s for real

I’ve fallen in love, yeah

God knows, God knows I’ve fallen in love

It’s strange but it’s true

Hey, I can’t get over the way you love me like you do

But I have to be sure

When I walk out that door

Oh how I want to be free, baby

Oh how I want to be free

Oh how I want to break free

But life still goes on

I can’t get used to living without, living without

Living without you by my side

I don’t want to live alone, hey

God knows, got to make it on my own

So baby can’t you see

I’ve got to break free

I’ve got to break free

I want to break free, yeah

I want, I want, I want, I want to break free

Ooh yeah

I want to break – yeah eah
