Escape
Journey Lyrics


He's just a young boy out of school
Livin' his world like he wants to
They're makin' laws, but they don't understand
Turns a boy in to a fightin' man
They won't take me
They won't break me
No one could tell him what to do
Had to learn everything the hard way
He's on the street, breakin' all the rules
I'm tellin' you that he's nobody's fool
They won't take me
They won't break me
Now he's leavin', gettin' out from this masquerade
Oh gotta go

I'm finally out in the clear and I'm free
I've got dreams I'm livin' for
I'm movin' on where they'll never find me
Rollin' on to anywhere
I'll break away, yes I'm on my way
Leavin' today, yes I'm on my way
Just when you think you had it all figured out
Runnin' scared can change your mind
I never knew I had so much to give
How hard times can fool ya
Oh I'm okay, I'm alright
Feelin' good out on your own

I'll break away, I'll break away tonight
I've got dreams I'm livin' for
I'll break away
Yes, I'm on my way
I'm leaving', leavin' today
Yes, I'm on my way
This is my escape
Yes, I'm on my way
I'll break away
Yes, I'm on my way

"Escape"

He's just a young boy out of school
Living his world like he wants to
They're making laws, but they don't understand
Turns a boy into a fighting man
They won't take me, they won't break me

No one could tell him what to do
Had to learn everything the hard way
He's on the streets breaking all the rules
I'm telling you that he's nobody's fool
They won't take me, they won't break me

Now he's leaving, getting out from this masquerade
Oh, gotta go

I'm finally out in the clear and I'm free
I've got dreams I'm living for
I'm moving on where they'll never find me
Rolling on to anywhere
I'll break away, yes, I'm on my way
Leaving today, yes, I'm on my way

Just when you think you had it all figured out
Running scared can change your mind
I never knew I had so much to give
How hard times can fool ya
I'm okay, I'm alright
Feeling good out on your own
I'll break away, I'll break away tonight
I've got dreams I'm living for

I'll break away, yes, I'm on my way
I'm leaving, leaving today, yes, I'm on my way
This is my escape, yes, I'm on my way
I'll break away, yes, I'm on my way

I'll break away, yes, I'm on my way
I'm leaving, leaving today, yes, I'm on my way
This is my escape, yes, I'm on my way
I'll break away, yes, I'm on my escape

This song is insane. It's like two songs in one with two bridges in the middle.... and then the tone change in the middle of the second half. And the chorus is beautiful. How do you even write something like this?

Robb Will

The 1st time l listened to it, l was blown away. When you just listen to the instrumentals you swear they have an orchestra behind them. But they don't. It's just so smooth the transition

@Shawn P Youre right… it’s a rock opera!

roberto velasco

That's why the music of today will never have what the classic rock had. Feelings!

Prince Scotty Gustafski

The fact of the matter is this incredible song is exciting, it's creative and it's full of unexpected changes. Basically, this very dynamic song is a roller coaster and not a ferris wheel. Anything released after this albumby Journey is straight ahead rock and lacks the dynamics of why "Escape" has sold 12 million albums worldwide. Journey's albums will never be the masterpieces this album will always be! 💖

It's like an opera

A 1000 years from now. They will be listening to this on a space ship or another planet. And still think. Damn !! That guy could really sing.

Gary Blanchard
