Troy:
We're soarin'
Flyin'
There's not a star in heaven that we can't reach

Gabriella:
If we're trying
So were breaking free

Troy:
You know the world can see us
In a way that's different than who we are

Gabriella:
Creating space between us
'Till we're seperate hearts

Both:
But your faith it gives me strength
Strength to believe

Chorus #1
Troy:
We're breakin' free

Gabriella:
We're soarin'

Troy:
Flyin'

Both:
There's not a star in heaven that we can't reach

Troy:
If we're trying

Both:
Yeah, we're breaking free

Troy:
Oh, we're breakin' free

Gabriella:
Ohhh

Troy:
Can you feel it building
Like a wave the ocean just can't control

Gabriella:
Connected by a feeling
Ohhh, in our very souls

Troy:
Very souls, Ooohhh

Both:
Rising 'til it lifts us up
So every one can see

Troy: Were breakin free

Chorus #2

Gabriella:
We're soarin'

Troy:
Flyin'

Both:
There's not a star in heaven that we can't reach

Troy:
If we're tryin'

Both:
Yeah we're breaking free

Troy:
ohhh were breakin free

Gabriella:
Ohhhh, Runnin'

Troy:
Climbin'

Troy:
To get to that place

Both:
To be all that we can be

Troy:
Now's the time

Both:
So were breaking free

Troy:
We're breaking free

Gabriella:
Ohhh , yeah

Troy:
More than hope
More than faith

Gabriella:
This is true
This is fate
And together

Both:
We see it comin'

Troy:
More than you
More than me

Gabriella:
Not a want, but a need
Both:
Both of us breakin' free
(Without music)

Chorus #3
Gabriella:
Soarin'

Troy:
Flyin'

(Music)
Both:
There's not a star in heaven that we can't reach
If we're trying

Troy: Yeah we're breaking free

Gabriella:
Breaking free
We're runnin

Troy:
Ohhhh, climbin'

Both:
To get to that place
To be all that we can be
Now's the time

Troy: Now's the time

Gabriella: So we're breaking free

Troy: Ohhh, we're breaking free

Gabriella: Ohhhh

Both:
You know the world can see us
In a way that different than who we are...

    General CommentI really liked this movie. This was by far the best song in the whole musical. If you don't get the meaning of the song just see the movie, it will sum it up. When i had a ski race, every one on the team was singing this song. This is probably going to be the song thats going to reminde me of this winter.

    General CommentI LOVE HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL!
    I LOVE HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL!

    SUCH A CUTE MOVIE! AND ADDICTING SONGS!

    If you guys think it's dumb, then you have no idea. It's actually really good even though it's a Disney Channel Original. Usually, those movies are kind of pointless and predictable. This movie is predictable, actually, but still . . . IT'S AMAZING! REALLY!
    I was singing these songs forever. They're good ones!

    Well . . . PEACE.

    General CommentI love that line

    You know the world can see us in a way that's different than who we are

    It tells me a lot. The whole song is just cool. This is my fav of the movie besides When There Was Me And You.

    General CommentExcellant song!

    Okay, baically the song is about two people against the world. Everybody thinks differently of them and they sing about it. But, the two 'break free' of everybody's thoughts, they go against all odds to be together. Basically, yeahh....


    Excellant! =D

    General Commenti can't get over the fact that i love this film
    and this song in particular

    it's awesome!
    the film as has already been said
    is predictable
    but to be fair
    that just adds to its charm

    plus zac efron is so unbelievably gorgeous
    haha

    loveit

    General CommentIf you don't get the meaning of this utterly predictable song, then I am seriously going to doubt your intelligence.

    General CommentHigh school musical is the worst, most boring and futile made-for-TV movie EVER. the kids are being exploited, they cannot sing and this song is possibly even worse than those S-Club Juniors. And that's damn low. And anyone who watches this movie more than once has no life.
