Why do I think there's nobody out there?
No one who wants me, no one who knows
I wait in this place, no one can see me
After all this time could I be so alone?

I walk through this old town, still feel lonely
Wind plays sad songs high in the trees
Sun never shines this deep in the forest
Am I in the darkness, is the darkness in me?

I wanna break, I wanna breakout
I wanna break, I wanna breakout

I want to taste the tears of a lover
Warm as my blood, as wet as a kiss
It's only dark rain, falls in this old town
Old as my memory, as cold as my lips

I wanna break, I wanna breakout
An' I don't wanna fake it, I want to breakout

And when I feel lonely
And when I feel lonely
You fly me to the sun

Above this old town from the top of the tower
Forget about living, I forget about pain
Edge of the platform, at the edge of a heartbeat
Above this old town I flew away

I wanna break, I wanna breakout
I don't wanna fake it, I want to breakout
I wanna break, I wanna breakout
I want to break, I want to breakout
