"Great Escape" as written by Jacob Kasher Hindlin, Kevin Rudolf and Cheri London....
One night when I was asleep
I had a dream I could fly
I felt the cold on my skin then I opened my eyes
So I jumped out of bed went down the fire escape
Now I'm laid out on the street I wasn't running away
From something I could control it was inside of me
I didn't know where to go but I decided to leave
I still remember that night I've never been the same
Still wonder if I can fly, was it just a dream?

I wasn't happy for so long so many times I walked away
Think I was searching for something
Not knowing what I had to face
Until I found out the reason
That's when I made my great escape
But now it's to late to say, I'm sorry

Turn around [x15]

One night when I couldn't sleep
I heard a knock at the door
She pulled her head on me slow then she opened my heart
I asked myself is this real I've never felt this way
She said I need to escape I said I know a place
So she laid down on my bed I said confide in me
She looked deep into my eyes and she invited me
She must have left me asleep she never said goodbye
Her angels took her away I guess now she can fly

I wasn't happy for so long so many times I walked away
Think I was searching for something
Not knowing what I had to face
Until I found out the reason
That's when I made my great escape
But now it's to late to say, I'm sorry

Turn around [x15]

But I wasn't happy for so long so many times I walked away
I think I was searching for something
Not knowing what I had to face
Until I found out the reason
That's when I made my great escape
But now it's to late to say, I'm sorry

And this is my song
These are my words
This is my story
This is my song
These are my words

And this is my song
And this is my story
These are my words

And this is my song
These are my words
This is my story
And this is my song
These are my words

    General CommentAnyone have an idea of what this song is about?? Its my favorite song on the cd... its got alot of emotion in it and a really catchy melody.
    Im guessing its about a guy who missed out on saying what he really felt for the girl becuase he waited to long.

    General CommentI believe this song talks about suicide. It's the "greatest escape". When he talks about the girl, it sounds like she overdosed on some kind of drug. It also says that he was searching for something...most of the people who seriously get addicted to drugs are looking for a missing part of their lives. I honestly believe that this is the best song he has made to date.
