Song: Just Break Free

I first performed this song as part of my school’s TEDx conference in early March 2019. I wrote this song while thinking about my own future, a universal feeling that every high school student experiences. At the same time, I also felt that the idea of failure is not often talked about, so that is something that I decided to highlight here.



I can feel my heart pounding out 
I can feel that I just wanna break these walls (are they closing in?)
Even though I’ve got so much to doubt
It feels like there’s something that I’m stuck in


I don’t want to fall 
But I want to fly
I know that I want to touch the sky
So should I keep myself
Locked up behind the walls
Even if I hear the call?


I just wanna break free
Just break free
I don’t wanna hide anymore
I just wanna break free
Just break free
Cause I don’t wanna stop anymore
But what if I fail?
If I don’t fly?
If I can’t touch this sky?
Just let me break free
Just break free
And let me live this life


I just want to break this silence
Why can’t we just say something? (Are we just scared?)
Is anybody else here with me?
I feel like we should do something


I wanna speak up
But I can’t come up
I know that I wanna set us free
So should I keep myself
Locked up behind the walls
Even if I hear the call?


I just wanna break free
Just break free
I don’t wanna hide anymore
I just wanna break free
Just break free
Cause I don’t wanna stop anymore
But what if I fail?
If I don’t fly?
If I can’t touch this sky?
Just let me break free
Just break free
And let me live this life


Oh oooh oh 
Oh oooh oh
And I can hear the call— it’s nearing
But its just that the fall I’m fearing


It is just one more step I’m taking
To you


I just wanna break free
Just break free
I don’t wanna hide anymore
I just wanna break free
Just break free
Cause I don’t wanna stop anymore
I know I won’t fail?
i know I will fly?
 I know that I can touch this sky?
Just let me break free
Just break free
And let me live this life
This life.
