Break these chains
©
Author: Al Stravinsky
Verse 1
For too long I've been restricted
By the shackles that hold me down.
For too long I have hung my head,
Might as well be dead and in the ground.

I can see a way to be free,
And the horizon is where I want to be.
I can feel the power within me,
I must believe in me,
And seize my freedom!

Chorus
I will break free from these chains
That I have carried all my life.
How good will it feel to lose these chains -
Listen to them falling,
I hear them falling away...

Verse 2
Your albatross ideas and millstone expectations
Have encumbered me for all my days,
Like an anchor on my ship of aspirations,
You tied me up and down but now I'll sail away.

Dangerous and stormy is the way that lies before me,
But liberty is where I want to be.
I can feel the power within me,
I must believe in me,
And seize my freedom!

Chorus
I will break free from these chains
That I have carried all my life.
How good will it feel to lose these chains -
Listen to them falling,
I hear them falling,
Listen to them falling,
I hear them falling away...
...falling away...
