Why do I think there's nobody out there?
No one who wants me and 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 and still feel lonely.
The wind plays sad songs high in the trees.
The sun never shines this deep in the forest.
Am 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 the 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
