Breakaway (The Springfields) - Lyrics by Dusty Springfield


Lyrics

(tom springfield)

The springfields

Breakaway, my heart is cryin'
Breakaway, the time is flyin'
So, i'm gonna tell myself don't sit and mourn
Lookin' sad and so forlorn
Tell myself i'm glad i'm born
Well, i'm gonna breakaway

Breakaway, the breeze is sighin'
Breakaway, the time is flyin'
So, i'm gonna pack a bag and get my coat
Lock my door and leave a note
Take a train or take a boat
Well, i'm gonna breakaway

I'll take me round from town to town
I'll see the friends i knew
I left 'em by the wayside
But i know their hearts are true

I'll give myself a holiday
I need it oh-so bad
And if i find a new love
I'll be glad, glad, glad

Breakaway, my heart is cryin'
Breakaway, the time is flyin'
So, i'm gonna find out what this world can give
While i'm young i'm gonna live
That's my plan, i'm positive
Well, i'm gonna breakaway

I'll take me round from town to town
I'll see the friends i knew
I left 'em by the wayside
But, i know their hearts are true

I'll give myself a holiday
I need it oh-so bad
And if i find a new love
I'll be glad, glad, glad

Breakaway, my heart is cryin'
Breakaway, the time is flyin'
So, i'm gonna find out what this world can give
While i'm young i'm gonna live
That's my plan, i'm positive
Well, i'm gonna breakaway
Gonna breakaway
Gonna breakaway
Breakaway
Breakaway
