Break Free Lyrics

If you want it, take it
I should have said it before
Tried to hide it, fake it
I can't pretend anymore

I only want to die alive
Never by the hands of a broken heart
I don't wanna hear you lie tonight
Now that I've become who I really am

This is the part when I say I don't want ya
I'm stronger than I've been before
This is the part when I break free
'Cause I can't resist it no more This is the part when I say I don't want ya
I'm stronger than I've been before
This is the part when I break free
'Cause I can't resist it no more

You were better, deeper
I was under your spell
Like a deadly fever, yeah, babe
On the highway to hell

I only want to die alive
Never by the hands of a broken heart
I don't wanna hear you lie tonight
Now that I've become who I really am

This is the part when I say I don't want ya
I'm stronger than I've been before
This is the part when I break free
'Cause I can't resist it no more

This is the part when I say I don't want ya
I'm stronger than I've been before
This is the part when I break free
'Cause I can't resist it no more

(No more, baby, ooh)
Thought of your body, I came alive
It was lethal, it was fatal
In my dreams it felt so right
But I woke up every time
Oh baby

This is the part when I say I don't want ya
I'm stronger than I've been before
This is the part when I break free
'Cause I can't resist it no more

This is the part when I say I don't want ya
I'm stronger than I've been before
This is the part when I break free
'Cause I can't resist it no more

Break Free Meanings & Interpretations

How would you recognise the contribution of one of the biggest EDM stars to this song, apart from the obvious corresponding tune? Optimistic and naive lyrics like that will eventually find their place with that song. Those PLUR kids nowdays....

Some lyrics make very little grammatical sense, but looking past that it's actually pretty decent lyrically. It's pretty clearly a "breakup" song of some sort, but I'm not sure it's necessarily about a partner. I think this song is about Ariana's distancing from her Nickoldeon past, and her search to find herself as a more 'mature' artist. Some have also said it's about the illuminati! I don't usually give those theories much weight but this song does have some interesting symbology.
