Breaking Free

Lyrics

Troy:
We're soarin', flyin'
There's not a star in heaven
That we can't reach

Gabriella:
If we're trying
So we're breaking free

Troy:
You know the world can see us
In a way that's different than who we are

Gabriella:
Creating space between us
'Till we're separate hearts

Troy and Gabriella:
But your faith, it gives me strength
Strength to believe

Troy:
We're breakin' free!

Gabriella:
We're soarin'

Troy:
Flyin'

Troy and Gabriella:
There's not a star in heaven
That we can't reach

Troy:
If we're trying

Troy and Gabriella:
Yeah, we're breaking free

Troy:
Oh, we're breakin' free

Gabriella:
Ohhh

Troy:
Can you feel it building
Like a wave the ocean just can't control

Gabriella:
Connected by a feeling
Ohhh, in our very souls (Troy: very souls, ohh)

Troy and Gabriella:
Rising 'till it lifts us up
So every one can see

Troy:
We're breakin' free!

Gabriella:
We're soarin'

Troy:
Flyin'

Troy and Gabriella:
There's not a star in heaven
That we can't reach

Troy:
If we're trying

Troy and Gabriella:
Yeah, we're breaking free

Troy:
Oh, we're breaking free (Gabriella: ooh)

Gabriella:
Runnin'

Troy:
Climbin'
To get to that place to

Troy and Gabriella:
Be all that we can be

Troy:
Now's the time

Troy and Gabriella:
So we're breaking free

Troy:
We're breaking free

Gabriella:
Ohhh, yeah

Troy:
More than hope
More than faith

Gabriella:
This is true
This is fate
And together

Troy and Gabriella:
We see it comin'

Troy:
More than you
More than me

Gabriella:
Not a want,
But a need

Troy and Gabriella:
Both of us
Breakin' free!

Gabriella:
Soarin'

Troy:
Flyin'

Troy and Gabriella:
There's not a star in heaven
That we can't reach
If we're trying

Troy:
Yeah, we're breaking free 

Gabriella:
Breaking free
Were runnin'

Troy:
Ohhh, climbin'

Troy and Gabriella:
To get to the place
To be all that we can be (Troy: be
Now's the time (Troy: now's the time)

Gabriella:
So we're breaking free

Troy:
Ohhh, we're breaking free

Gabriella:
Ohhhh

Troy and Gabriella:
You know the world can see us
In a way that's different than who we are
