Break Free

Don’t tell me how I feel
You don't know what I’m going through
You’ll never understand
until you feel the same way I do

I wake up everyday
and even sometimes through the night
I’ll never feel the way I want
until the feeling's right

You may see me smiling
and you may think I’m fine
I’m only lying to myself
and I'm only wasting time

Escape the dream I’m dreaming
Wake up and realize
Nothing's free like love and living
So I'll push on until my demise

We have one life but two ways of living
So you can sit there and criticize
or break free from the dream you’re dreaming
and be like those you idolize

I’ve always tried to be
the only man I want to be
Now I’ve got to play the game
and never let the game play me

You never win the war
without going through some pain
and though I’m feeling sore
I will fight, and fight again

Now you see me standing,
against the highest wall
I tell you now, I'll keep on climbing
no matter how many times I fall.
