Breakaway

Thursday, May 21, 2015

At some point in life, people find themselves getting stuck up in a certain condition that they don’t feel like belonging to it. That it isn’t what they wanted to do with their lives. That they’re fed-up. That they need a breakthrough; a life-changing moment for the significant turning-point. Everyone has that point where they feel to be free and break away, to be able to experience something new and different, to get out from the (no longer) comfort zone, to see the outside world from the world they used to live in. Perhaps it’s not better, but it’s certainly different. Perhaps there’s so much risk, but there’s surely so much worth the effort and fight. We only live once, so make the full of it. Cliche, it is, but words become a spell when we put a belief in it.

I’ll spread my wings and I’ll learn how to fly. I’ll do what it takes ‘til I touch the sky. And I’ll make a wish, take a chance, make a change, and breakaway.” –Kelly Clarkson, Breakaway (OST. The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement)

A  song titled “Breakaway” is our today’s song for Free Spirit. This pop rock song was performed by Kelly Clarkson, the winner of the first season of American Idol. “Breakaway” was first released as the first single from “The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement” movie soundtrack on July 19th 2004. It It later became the title song of Clarkson’s second studio album of the same name which was released on November 30th 2004. The song was written by Avril Lavigne, Bridget Benenate, and Matthew Gerrard.
Everyone has a dream. And everyone has that point in their life when everything seems so out of place. And that if they keep staying the same way, it won’t take them anywhere closer to reach their dream. The lyrics of “Breakaway” tell about someone in their spirit to go out there realizing their dream. “Grew up in a small town, and when the rain would fall down, I’d just stare out my window. Dreaming of what could be and if I’d end up happy, I would pray. Trying hard to reach out, but when I tried to speak out, felt like no one could hear me. Wanted to belong here, but something felt so wrong here, so I prayed I could break away.” Everyone has a dream. And sometimes the place where they are now couldn’t provide what they need to make it comes true. There’s so much to see in this world. And indeed, people need to travel in order to see what’s beyond and more to life. “Wanna feel the warm breeze, sleep under a palm tree, feel the rush of the ocean. Get on board a fast train, travel on a jet plane, far away and breakaway.”
“I’ll spread my wings and I’ll learn how to fly. I’ll do what it takes ‘til I touch the sky. And I’ll make a wish, take a chance, make a change, and breakaway. Out of the darkness and into the sun, but I won’t forget all the ones that I love. I’ll take a risk, take a chance, make a change, and breakaway.” Leaving is easy, but the art of letting go is never. Especially from a place we used to live; a home. Especially from people we used to be with; beloved ones. The attachment might hold us back, but don’t let it bring us down. Don’t let it fades away in our memories and make it precious. To remember is to make us a better person each day. Every chance only comes once in a lifetime. As we only live once too, take it and make it worth the risk. “I’ll spread my wings, and I’ll learn how to fly, though it’s not easy to tell you goodbye. I gotta take a risk, take a chance, make a change, and breakaway. Out of the darkness and into the sun, but I won’t forget the place I come from. I gotta take a risk, take a chance, make a change, and breakaway.”
“Breakaway” gained both commercial and critical success. Music critics complimented the song’s universal message and its simple autobiographical lyrics where people could relate to. It was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) on February 5th 2005. Directed by Dave Meyers, the accompanying music video for “Breakaway” was premiered on MTV on August 9th 2004, with some scenes from the movie. The video’s storyline depicted and illustrated the lyrics so well.

“Grew up in a small town, and when the rain would fall down, I’d just stare out my window
Dreaming of what could be and if I’d end up happy, I would pray, I would pray
Trying hard to reach out, but when I tried to speak out, felt like no one could hear me
Wanted to belong here, but something felt so wrong here, so I prayed I could break away

I’ll spread my wings and I’ll learn how to fly, I’ll do what it takes ‘til I touch the sky
And I’ll make a wish, take a chance, make a change, and breakaway
Out of the darkness and into the sun, but I won’t forget all the ones that I love
I’ll take a risk, take a chance, make a change, and breakaway

Wanna feel the warm breeze, sleep under a palm tree, feel the rush of the ocean
Get on board a fast train, travel on a jet plane, far away and breakaway

Buildings with a hundred floors, swinging ‘round revolving doors
Maybe I don’t know where they’ll take me
But gotta keep moving on, moving on, fly away, breakaway

I’ll spread my wings, and I’ll learn how to fly, though it’s not easy to tell you goodbye
I gotta take a risk, take a chance, make a change, and breakaway
Out of the darkness and into the sun, but I won’t forget the place I come from
I gotta take a risk, take a chance, make a change, and breakaway, breakaway, breakaway”
