Breakin' Loose Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

It was the typical blues, it was more bad news
I was walkin' down a dirty street
Saw a man I knew some years before
On the corner where the losers meet

He had rags on his back, as a matter of fact
Had a cold look on his face
He was standin' in line, groanin' words for the kind
As I passed I could hear him say, he said

"Don't live your life by the dollar sign
Live life to the limit, that's the bottom line
No guarantees what tomorrow will bring
Be the best at what you are, it's all a little insane"

Breakin' loose, breakin' the chain
You never know what the future will bring
Breakin' loose, breakin' the spell
I tried a part, now I'm playin' it well

Professional man, had the world in his hands
He arrived in the finest cars
He posted up his lifetime success
Every night at his favorite bar

He got off the track, he never looked back
He's an upper class renegade
Now he ain't got a dime, just his peace of mind
And he knows that he's got it made

Breakin' loose, breakin' the chain
You never know what the future will bring
Breakin' loose, breakin' the spell
I tried a part, now I'm playin' it well

Breakin' loose, emotional bruise
That's enough, it's time to go through
Breakin' loose, cut the line
It don't matter what your money can buy

Breakin' loose, breakin' the chain
You never know what the future will bring
Breakin' loose, breakin' the spell
I tried a part, now I'm playin' it well

Breakin' loose, emotional bruise
The house on the hill in a financial noose
Breakin' loose, cut the line
It don't matter what your money can buy
Oh breakin' loose
