I Broke Free

I never lived
Until I died
I couldn’t give
Never even tried
I was too poor
My life was a lie
I was too sure in my pride

Bad hearts run 
in my clan
Dead bank drunk
Alone and cold
I found who I am
When the future could not be
told
And yesterday grew old

I broke free
I broke free

I die when I hold you
Don’t ever let me go
I knew when I died
I would take you along with me
I knew you would always be
The one to keep my love alive

I broke free
I broke free

I’ve broken free 
Of what I believe
That I am blind
That I see
That I tried
That love is ice
Or life is fire

I’ve broken free
Now I can leave
I can finally fly
I can be
Completely 
At peace
Do not grieve

I never lived
Until I died
I couldn’t give
Oh how I tried
A word to the wise
A man lives as he dies
He takes up what he lays aside

I broke free
I’ve broken free
I broke free I broke free I broke free
When I died 
I broke free
