Why do I think there's nobody out there
No one who wants me and no one who knows
I wait in this place and no one can see me
After all this time could I be so alone
I walk through this old town and still feel so lonely
The winds play sad songs high in the trees
The sun never shines this deep in the forest
And I in the darkness or is the darkness in me
I wanna break
I wanna break out
I wanna break
I wanna break out
I want to taste the tears of a lover
Warm as my blood as wet as a kiss
But it's only dark rain that falls in this old town
Old as my memory and as cold as my lips
I wanna break
I wanna break out
I don't wanna fake it
I want to break out
And when I feel lonely
And when I feel lonely
You fly me to the sun
Above this old town
From the top of a tower
I forget about living I forget about pain
At the edge of the platform
At the edge of a heartbeat
Above this old town I flew away
I wanna break
I wanna break out
I don't wanna fake it
I want to break out
I wanna break
I wanna break out
I want to break
I want to break out
