"Breakthru" as written by and Freddie/deacon Mercury....
When love breaks up
When the dawn light wakes up
A new life is born
Somehow I have to make this final breakthrough
Now

I wake up
Feel just fine
Your face
Fills my mind
I get religion quick
'Cause you're looking divine
Honey, you're touching something; you're touching me
I'm under your thumb, under your spell, can't you see?

If I could only reach you
If I could make you smile
If I could only reach you
That would really be a breakthrough, oh yeah

Break through these barriers of pain
Break through to the sunshine from the rain
Make my feelings known towards you
Turn my heart inside and out for you now
Somehow I have to make this final breakthrough
Now, oh yeah

Your smile speaks books to me
I break up
With each and every one of your looks at me
Honey, you're starting something deep inside of me
Honey, you're sparking something this fire in me
I'm outta control
I want to rush headlong into this ecstasy

If I could only reach you
If I could make you smile
If I could only reach you
That would really be a breakthrough

If I could only reach you
If I could make you smile
If I could only reach you
That would really be a breakthrough
Oh yeah
Breakthrough, breakthrough

If I could only reach you
If I could make you smile
If I could only reach you
That would really be a breakthrough

If I could only reach you
If I could make you smile
If I could only reach you
That would really be a breakthrough

Breakthrough

    General CommentI think it's about being in love with an acquaintance. Although it my hurt because you're not with them (you don't know if they like you back), it's a good thing just to be able to talk to them, make them smile. '...honey you're touching me...': just them touching your arm or whatever is like a surprising, wonderful thing. Each positive response is a little breakthrough. But the 'final breakthru' would be asking them out/telling them how you feel!
    Or, theres the possibilty that both people are friends and unaware of thier feelings towards each other and don't understand why they enjoy being together so much and the breakthru would be the realisation!
    Oh and the begginning bit suggests the narrator breaking up with someone and not really caring about it, because presumably they care so much more for the person mentioned throughout the rest of the song.

    General CommentThe intro is a Freddie Mercury written "A New Life Is Born" which exists as a separate demo in a bit longer form on the bootleg market.

    General CommentA year and a half after my brother passed away (1999), I got depressed. One night I had a vivid dream about my brother and he sang this song to me. At the time I didn't know the words, but I recognized the song. Next day I bought the cd and read the text: these are my brothers words telling me he wanted to reach me one more time, through my rain into the sunshine and make me smile again....
    At that time I knew I had to face myself, and get better...... it worked....
    Whenever I hear the song, I hear my brother talking to me. That's what it means to me.

    General CommentThis song is shown through the eyes of a depress person that cant let his dead love go. However, he comes across another bueatiful girl that he wants to know. But the depression and sad thoughts of the other the girl holds him back and he waits reluctantly for that girl to come back someday. If he can breakthru his own dead love for a new one. SONG ROCKS!
