“Breaking Out” starts out describing my life as a child.
It was a time when I was carefree and spoiled, but this made things more difficult for me later in life.
I was the youngest of 5, hence the “Motley Crew”. I was also immature, and of course very shy.
I worked full time to get through college and had a few close friends that loved cars, going to parties, and hanging out at the beach. I was under a lot of stress during this time and had profusely bad migraines that required some heavy-duty medications to get me though, hence “The Migraines that left their mark”.
It was a fight between my dad and brother that changed the course of my life. “Gave me my Spark”. I was not the model student, but this event made me think about where I did not want to go with life.
For the rest of the song, I wanted to inspire everyone to “Break Out” of their every day life and follow what you love to do. It is up to us to make the change and it will definitely not happen sitting around waiting for it to happen. Life events and people will cross our path and it is up to us to take advantage of these situations to make the most of them. Nothing is easy, so it will take a lot of hard work and time to accomplish what you want to do. It’s OK to take a break when you get discouraged - but get back on it as soon as you can, and don’t lose sight of your goals. Nothing is impossible to do!
Breaking Out Lyrics
Copyright 2022 All Rights Reserved
It all started out, at a very young age
Watching TV, goof-in off, as life goes had it made
Grew up in a motley crew, not really knowing much
Young, Naive, and Socializing, just not my cup
Working hard full time, just to get through school
Cars, booze, parties, beaches, I thought were cool
Then troubled waters came my way, and gave me my spark
All the Migraines from that stress, surely left its mark
Gonna go, and do it right this time
No more wastin, gonna read the signs
Going to take control, of my life
It’s now or never, feelin the time is right
Have everything I need, right in my sight
My laser focus, not given up this fight
Never gonna refuse, when I get my chance
Time to get mov-in, gonna take my stance
Just Hold on for the ride, don’t get caught up in the tide
Follow your heart, don’t leave to fate, it’s up to us, just keep it straight
Trust in others, will see you through, don’t test karma, please heed this clue
Don’t you take the easy way out, gettin through will test your doubt
