Lyrics

I'm no stranger to a heartbreak here

but the way I gave you everything just makes it more severe

You shot a bullet in my head, making way for all my tears

I guess the love you gave me was just fake and now I lost my dear

Are you happy now that you can walk further?

While I'm still struggling to make my heart free of this burden

You left it all behind, you left me all behind

Got the shadows of my heart to break free of my mind

To break all of your signs


Break it all, like you've come and went you broke my heart

Now I'll never be the same I was, and I swear that I will break my vow, as the tears stream down

I'll burn it all, all these dreams I've had, you tore them all

Now all these shattered pieces bleed my heart

Left all broken I will wield them all, and I will break out


Are you happy now that you fin'ly broke me?

When I was dying you never even asked me

Guess I'm just simply now a shadow in your story

A mistake in your story, tainting all your glory

But, no, the blame lies on me, 'cause I wasn't good enough

And now your search has started to find another love

You said you loved me but it feels like you're lying, you feel like a liar

Now I'm a raging fire


Break it all, like you've come and went you broke my heart

Now I'll never be the same I was, and I swear that I will break my vow, as the tears stream down

I'll burn it all, all these dreams I've had, you tore them all

Now all these shattered pieces bleed my heart

Left all broken I will wield them all, and I will break out


Let me show you who I am, what I do

When my heart gets broken I write another tune

I take the lessons in my core

Become better, break some more

Wearing Paper and Dior

Try to find a higher score

I am done being quiet playing mister nice guy

I don't care bout pretty words, if it all just is a lie

Got the beauties and the beats

Wreaking havoc in the sheets

Steady filling up the seats

'Cos I've always got new feats

I'm going higher and I swear I am no liar

But you know how I've always been a fighter

I'll fight, and I'll fight, and I won't die while imma try

Stay the best unlike the rest

Stay the best unlike the rest

Stay the blast from your past

But you're the last of my mess


Break it all, like you've come and went you broke my heart

Now I'll never be the same I was, and I swear that I will break my vow, as the tears stream down

I'll burn it all, all these dreams I've had, you tore them all

Now all these shattered pieces bleed my heart

Left all broken I will wield them all, and I will break out


Origin

Break Out is, in my opinion, by far the best song I have released to date. From the instrumental production, to the vocals and mixing, the amount of time spent on the song is bizarre.

Right from the 1st verse, it's clear what the song is about, which is a break-up I had to go through two months back, after having been in a relationship for six months, one that I still wanted to fight for, but was taken away from me. I didn't name it to just about most people, nor did I express my feelings about it except for a few people.

In the beginning after it was out I refused to write a song about it, since I wanted to take a break from my music career a few months back. Eventually I wanted to write a song about the feelings I had, so basically another love song, but eventually after the weeks went by I noticed that the pain got worse. My heart was actually broken, I realized then. I felt so bizarrely bad because of my broken heart, that at one point I ended up back at a 1 on the "life scale," although that was only for a short night.

Once when the worst was over I used the pain to produce a new song, blank. Within 5 minutes I already had the basic chords and melodies, and on that I kept building and building.

The song went through several stages, and only after by the 7th version can it be heard as how you hear it now mainly. Gradually came the lyrics for the verses and the chorus.

The verses reflect the mixed feelings and pain I experienced and still experience and how I look at the whole situation now. The chorus represents how my ex has thus completely broken my heart, and the consequences that that broken heart gives, with one of the things being using the broken heart as a weapon, to become even stronger.

So the thing that took a long time to finish was the bridge. I had no idea what I wanted to put in it, at least within the limits I always set myself for songs. My goal is to come across humble, innocent and loving with songs, something you can clearly see in most songs. But the pain I was in couldn't come up with anything within the framework.

Eventually after several friends told me to "just let loose" I made the bridge that is there now. I still limited myself somewhat, but it's time to draw the lyrics wider from now on, to fully express myself. And as one of the verses says, not one thing lied.

Break Out is an anthem for anyone whose heart is broken, a very vulnerable, but at the same time a very powerful song. A song very much in contrast to the first song of this year: Gonna Be Okay, a song that ushers in a new era from the artist Aurelio Bulla.

A song with what I'll finally break out
