Breaking the Chains Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level 이준기
1. Breaking the Chains (3:51)
Sit there thinkin'
In your room
You feel the pressure
You're goin' crazy too
The walls around you
Closin' in
You need a change

Claustrophobic
Feelin' scared
You need somebody
But no one seems to care
A one way ticket
A change of pace
You've had enough
Can't take no more

[Chorus 1:]
Breaking the chains around you
Nobody else can bind you
Take a good look around you
Now you're breaking the chains

Got this letter
Came today
From my baby
Who left me yesterday
Said she loves
She'll come back
She wants to try

I won't let her
She'll be upset
I know it's better
Than somethin' I'll regret
She's been dishonest
And insincere
I lost my mind
Twenty times a year

[Chorus 2:]
Breaking the chains around me
Nobody else can bind me
Take a good look around me
Now I'm breaking the chains

[Solo]

Woke up today
I'm alone
I look around
But baby you were gone
But I don't mind
And I don't worry
I will survive

I'm alone
Now that you're gone
Don't need nobody
To hold or tie me down
I broke the chains
So let me be
I've gotta be free

[Repeat Chorus 2]
[Repeat Chorus 2]
2. In the Middle (3:43)
I talk with you
I think of her
It always turns out the same
I changed my mind
Then I'm not sure
Love's got me shackled in chains

Win or lose
We've lit the fuse
I've lost control
Then you explore my soul

[Chorus:]
In the middle
Of love
In the middle
Of love

Torn apart
Right from the start
Is it too late to be true?

Now things have changed
We're not the same
I've lost control
Then you explore my soul

[Repeat Chorus]
[Repeat Chorus]

[Solo]

[Repeat Chorus]
[Repeat Chorus]

In the middle
I lose control
In the middle
I lose my mind as well
In the middle
Everyday
In the middle
Love's got me chained

[Repeat Chorus and fade]
3. Felony (3:08)
Felony
In tight blue jeans
I did not know
She was so sweet
Felony
What ya did to me
The judge said sorry
First degree

[Chorus:]
You're here in my heart
Felony
You're here in my heart
Felony, felony, felony, yeah
Felony, felony, felony

Well I was shot down
By a heart so cruel
You were were laughin' yeah
You took me for a fool
I'm struck down
Left lyin' in the dirt
I never knew
How much love it hurts

[Chorus]
[Solo]

Harvard paid
Detective man
I'm in his sights
I'm on the run
Those tight blue jeans
That drove me wild
I did not know
She was just a child

Felony, yeah

[Chorus]

Felony, felony, felony
4. I Can't See You (3:11)
You keep me waitin'
Why I don't know
Seems like forever
You know the show

I wanna see you
Don't want it to end
But when I'm callin'
You tell me again

[Chorus:]
I can't see you anymore
I can't see you anymore

All my friends keep tellin' me, yeah
That I'm just a fool
But baby I can't help myself
I'm in love with you

Give me just one chance
And I'll make it right
Could be forever
Don't tell me tonight

[Repeat Chorus]

All my friends keep tellin' me, yeah
That I'm just a fool
But baby I can't help myself
I'm in love with you

Give me just one chance
And I'll make it right
Could be forever
Don't tell me tonight

[Repeat Chorus (x5) and fade...]
5. Live to Rock (Rock to Live) (3:39)
Run out of breath
And I feel I'm moving too slow
Backwards and forwards
I don't know which way I should go

There's a solution
To make all your feelings alright
The music's here waiting
So come on and get it tonight

Live to rock
Rock to live
It's all you got when
You're down on the skids
Live to rock
Rock to live
One way or another
Survive until the end

Over and under
I'm feeling the thunder take hold
Feeling it flow through my veins
Rock will never get old

There's a solution
To make all your feelings alright
The music's here waiting
So come on and get it tonight

Live to rock
Rock to live
It's all you got when
You're down on the skids
Live to rock
Rock to live
One way or another
Survive until the end

Live to rock
Rock to live
It's all you got when
You're down on the skids, yeah
Live to rock
Rock to live
One way or another
Survive until the end
Live to rock
Rock to live
'til the end
'til the end
'til the end
Live to rock
Rock to live
6. Nightrider (3:13)
It's late at night
I get that feeling running through my veins
You know it drives me insane
In the car, slam the door, turn the key and I'll be free
On that highway tonight

Highway bound
I'm so alive
I'm shifting into overdrive
Nightrider
Autobon
Route 61
I'll drive this road into the sun
Nightrider

My machine is tired and cool
I don't need to go to school
I'll put the hammer down and I'll leave this town
I'm racing time
The freeway just seess to unwind in front of me
And there's no return

My wheels of love
Fit me like a racing glove
Nightrider
Don't touch the brake
Don't cross the line
Don't make mistakes
'Cause you know that I'm
Nightrider
Nightrider

Here I come

The engine roars
------- and tied
I'm locked inside my doors
On a midnight run
But who knows when
Danger lies around the bend for me
With the morning sun

Pass her by
Faster than the speed of light
Nightrider
You better run
Look out now
'Cause here I come
Nightrider
Nightrider
7. Seven Thunders (3:55)
Demon eyes
And the fate is coming down on you
Fire in her eyes
The love she gives she says is all for you

Come the night
You will pay the price
In the night
No one by your side
In the night
She will come to you
In the night
She take you down

Seven thunders
In her eyes
Seven thunders
And no where you can hide
If you can

Won't stop to look at where she's been
All the same
She's telling lies if you believe its true

Comes the night
You will pay the price
In the night
No one by your side
In the night
She will come to you
In the night
She'll take you down

In the night
You will pay the price
In the night
She will come and take your life
In the night
She will seal your fate
In the night
She'll take you down

Seven thunders
In her eyes
Seven thunders
She threw the dice
Seven Thunders
You pay the price
Seven Thunders
Now she took you in the night
Seven Thunders
She told you lies
Seven Thunders
The love she brings is not for you
Seven Thunders
Seven thunders
In her eyes
8. Young Girls (3:14)
Staying out all night dancing
You can't keep them at home, no
She'll tease and smile
She'll play for a while
She's got it under control, yeah

I hope it's me tonight
She's looking for
Oh, sweet young girls

9. Stick to Your Guns (3:25)
Well I've been trying this for so very long
To make you understand
If you'll fight for what you need
Don't come crawling over to me

I'm not the kind of person who quits
Even when the chips are down
You gotta fight for what you want
Don't give up
Stick to your guns

You gotta fight for what you want
Gotta believe in what you do
You gotta fight for what you want
Don't give up
Stick to your guns

Stick to your guns
Stick to your guns

A hard time you've been having
Don't feel bad if you're on your own
If you fight for what you want
Things ain't gonna turn out so bad

You gotta fight for what you want
Gotta believe in what you do
You gotta fight for what you want
Don't give up
Stick to your guns

Stick to your guns
You gotta stick to your guns

Well, I'll tell you
You gotta fight for what you want
Gotta believe in what you do
You gotta fight for what you want
Don't give up
Stick to your guns

Stick to your guns
You gotta stick to your guns
I gotta tell you
Stick to your guns
Don't give up
Stick to your guns
You got to stick to your
You got to stick to your
You got to stick to your guns
10. Paris Is Burning (5:11)
This town I'm in can't take no more
Decadence is silly
You were my woman
Why'd you have to be so hard and cold

[Chorus 1:]
Paris is burning
Want to see it from afar
Paris is burning
Want to get to where you are

My life's in ruin
The girl I love
She's far away
The distant fire
Brings memories of the love
That I once knew
Where are you now
Been looking all around
And I can't stay
Help me now
I can't stay
Much more before I fade away

[Chorus 2:]
Paris is burning
Want to see it from afar
Paris is burning
Get back where you are

[Solo]

I can't believe
You'd throw it all away
You know you played me for a fool
I'm leavin' now
This time you know
That I'll be gone for good, yeah

[Chorus 2]
Paris is burning, Paris
Paris is burning
Paris is burning
Want to see it from afar
Paris is burning
Paris [Fade Out]
