Break Free Lyrics

Play "Break Free"
on Amazon Music

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...

    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

    I beleive it's about a girl who doesn't want to be controlled by the guy she is dating. This song was similar to Problem but she I think she tried to make it as in she is not choosing wether or not to “Break Free”, she is straight away doing it. In the song Problem she was always Broken Free. Break Free was about not letting anyone control you and saying that you should be who you wanna be!

    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 think to record this song is to make our special ladies to have more pop and r and b but the video is so cool and so we wanted to be beautiful and someday it’ll be like a beach with our parents and relatives and so it’s more important to our family and friends my mom and dad are proud of me writing this song for me, it’s like a vacation summer.

    I think it's about a girl that likes girls and now she is breaking free so she can be how she really is. So she says she wants to break free, I think of prejudice or of her boyfriend. Just an opinion.

    I think to this song belongs to that noise of music recorded to that music industry but it’s nice to have friends who are working with me this afternoon Bethany brothers, Ariana grande, Taylor Swift, and Kelly Clarkson, these are popular kids I wanted to work with this year, the award goes to my favorite band, Bethany brothers.

    I wanted to be like the album of my cousins because these two needed to practice their songs but I’m here to support them to write music, and also. They loved this music, but it’s pop and country album. I leave them on the couch they decided to pick the color. So, they choose pink and blue of course. And we also have many come up with the album called the cousin talk. Because we’re cousins!

    Ariana herself said: “It means life is so short — there’s no reason to not enjoy it and there’s no reason you should be anything but yourself [...] Have fun, be spontaneous and let go. It’s O.K. to cut off whatever you feel is holding you back.”

    I would record the song but I’m going to write the music to my producer, Hayden, and Luke, they have everything to make this possible. I really enjoyed that music.

    I think this song is about very cool experiment of alliens and they have to shoot it at the island then they would have to connect to the write music and come up with break free, then it’s backing on and seemed to up dated.

    I think that this is a heart break that is desperately needed in order for things to be right on the inside or for iner peace.

    It’s About Her Wanting Out Of A Relationship She Doesn’t Want To Be In With A Person Who Is Unsure About It. She Doesn’t Want To Listen To Lies About Them Loving Her , She Can’t Take Faking It’s Ok.
