I found the poison under my skin
Creeping in slowly feeding everything
I feel so close yet so far away
Staring at life this prison of sheltering
It's killing me...

I-I-I wanna break free from these walls
And say goodbye-ay-ay to the feelings that I've known before
I try-ay-ay to fight back the urge to hideaway
and let it, let it, let it open my eyes
to the other side

The glass it's breaking, I'm not afraid
The noise it's making is taking my breath away
This water is cold but I'm not alone
And something's moving underneath my feet
It's sinking me...

I-I-I wanna break free from these walls
And say goodbye-ay-ay to the feelings that I've known before
I try-ay-ay to fight back the urge to hideaway
and let it, let it, let it open my eyes
to the other side

Ooo-oo
Floating away on a star
Passing through clouds and rose colors
Oh...starting over
I'm never coming down

I...I...I...
I...I...I...

It's killing me, just set me free
Set me free!

I-I-I wanna break free from these walls
And say goodbye-ay-ay to the feelings that I've known before
I try-ay-ay to fight back the urge to hideaway
and let it, let it, let it open my eyes
to the other side

I-I-I wanna break free from these walls
And say goodbye-ay-ay to the feelings that I've known before
I try-ay-ay to fight back the urge to hideaway
and let it, let it, let it open my eyes
to the other side

Ooo, oooo, oh oh oh
Mm oo mm oo.

    General CommentAlana is a very powerful singer/songwriter who doesn't seem to hold back. This song is obviously a breaking-free anthem and finding comfort on "the other side".
