Breaking Free
Olivia Rodrigo Joshua Bassett & Matt Cornett Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

We're soarin', flyin'
There's not a star in heaven that we can't reach
If we're tryin', so we're breakin' free

You know the world can see us
In a way that's different than who we are
Creating space between us, 'til we're separate hearts
But your faith, it gives me strength
Strength to believe

We're breakin' free
We're soarin', flyin'
There's not a star in heaven that we can't reach
If we're tryin', yeah, we're breakin' free
Oh, we're breakin' free, ooh, whoa

More than hope, more than faith
This is truth, this is fate
And together we see it coming
More than you, more than me
Not a want, but a need
Both of us, breakin' free

Soarin', flyin'
There's not a star in heaven that we can't reach
If we're tryin', yeah, we're breakin' free (breakin' free)

We're runnin', ooh, climbin'
To get to the place to be all that we can be (be)
Now's the time (now's the time)
So we're breakin' free (oh, we're breakin' free), ooh whoa





You know the world can see us
In a way that's different than who we are
