Song Lyric Sunday: Change – ‘Break Away’

“And I can break away to the better life
Where the shackles never hold me down”

Who doesn’t like the Beach Boys? It’s almost impossible not to buy into the feelgood that comes from those matchless harmonies. So here’s ‘Break Away’: an upbeat song about changing life for the better, to help Helen with her packing and moving this week.

Break break shakeaway
Break breakaway
Now I’m free to do what I wanna doTime will not wait for me
Time is my destiny
Why change the part of me that has to be free
The love that passed me by
I found no reason whyBut now each day is filled with the love
That very same love
That passed me by
And that is whyI can breakaway from that lonely life
And I can do what I wanna do
And breakaway from that empty life
And my world is new

When I laid down on my bed
I heard voices in my head
Telling me now “Hey it’s only a dream”
The more I thought of it
I had been out of it
And here’s the answer I found instead

(Baby baby)
Found out it was in my head
(Baby baby)
(Baby baby)
Found out it was in my head
(Baby baby)
(Baby baby)
Found out it was in my head
(Baby baby)

And I can break away to the better life
Where the shackles never hold me down
I’m gonna make a way for each happy day
As my life turns around

Come on we’re free to break away
(Oh boy you jump for joy)
Now won’t you come on
(When you breakaway)
You’re free to breakaway
(Breakaway)
Come on you’re free to break away
(Breakaway)
Now won’t you come on
(Breakaway)
You’re free to break away
(Breakaway)

Feel the vibrations
In all the sensations
Breakaway
