Lyrics

Tonight

My head is spinning

I need

Something to pick me up

I’ve tried

But nothing is working

I won’t stop

I won’t say I’ve had enough

Tonight

I start the fire

Tonight

I break away

 

Break

Away from everybody

Break

Away from everything

If you can’t stand

The way this place is

Take

Yourself

To higher places

 

At night

I feel like a vampire

It’s not right

But I just can’t give it up

I’ll try

To get myself higher

Let’s go

We’re gonna light it up

Tonight

We start the fire

Tonight

We break away

 

Break

Away from everybody

Break

Away from everything

If you can’t stand

The way this place is

Take

Yourself

To higher places

 

If you can’t stand

The way this place is

Take

Yourself

To higher places

 

Break

Away from everybody

Break

Away from everything

If you can’t stand

The way this place is

Take

Yourself

To higher places

 

Higher places

To higher places

Higher places

Take

Yourself

To higher places

 

 

Opinion Daniël

The song has a powerful start , but unfortunately it’s losing the energy after that. Nevertheless it’s still a good song.

Opinion Justin

I’ve had a period when Three Days Grace was my favourite band, but now they aren’t anymore. Nevertheless I still like to listen to their music, but not as often as I did. Break is one of the songs I still like to listen. The couplets sounds good and the refrains are a bit harder. The lyrics are very good as well. “If you can’t stand the way this place is, take yourself to higher places”. Sounds easier than  it is, but it’s still very good.

Opinion Timothy

The song has an energetic start and it keeps that at the first part of it. The middle part with the music solo is a bit boring and it’s unfortunate that it’s in it. But after that the energy comes back. All by all it’s a good song, although I don’t like the music solo.

Grade: 8,3

Break comes in eighth place out of seventeen in the ranking.
