Break Free Lyrics

If you want it, take it
I should've said it before
Tried to hide it, fake it
I can't pretend anymore

I only wanna die alive
Never by the hands of a broken heart
Don't wanna hear you lie tonight
Now that I've become who I really...

    Someone pls tell me, in her music video, what did the end mean? When she kissed that elephant toy and put a phone by it? What did that elephant toy symbolize?

    It's about her being with a person she knows she shouldn't be with but her heart is saying that she's so into him (his looks) ..so she's getting the courage to break free and do what's best for herself whether she wants to or not "I only wanna die alive never by the hands of a broken heart" shed rather die having been loved than dying being with someone who didn't love her bc they were unsure of themselves

    It is about breaking free from a relationship and how she just does not care any more.

    I think her company gave her this song, most of the lyrics make no sense 'i only wanna die alive' and the music video doesn't have a meaning, just like the song

    I think it's about how her brother is gay and he should break free and be himself..

    This song by Ariana Grande is talking about her breaking free from Christianity or whatever religion she was before into the illuminati. In d music video she was wearing a red band on her hand with so many freemasonic signs and aliens
    So its just about her breaking free from her previous self into a new one like Rihanna good girl gone bad.

    I think it is about someone with a disorder or a life struggle.The person is trying to break free of their "problems".

    It's about not staying with a jerk of a beau or "lover".

    She is choosing whether or not she wants to get away from her boyfriend or not if she has the courage to do it or not. Also with her heart being broken so many times in the real world she wanted a fantasy about what she would do when she broke free.

    The music video taught me how to shoot bullets out of my kajungas in time with the music.

    It feels like Ariana is being controlled by her boyfriend, and she wants to get way from him, but I think it has a more ariana's real-life related meaning, where she is trying to get away from her labels put on her, like being innocent, or childish, or weak. She is trying to "break free" and show todays society that even though she was a nickelodeon star, she can still be like any other famous star.

    I believe it is about the nasty. Everything. Fake it? Better? Deeper? Anyone?
