lyrics

All alone in his room, his guitar’s out of tune,
And he’s lost to the sound of his stereo,
Late at night, wide awake, while he plans his escape,
Hits record on track as he waits,
He ignored what they said, his parents, all his friends,
It’s more than just a dream in his head,
Tune them out, prove them wrong, finish another song,
He can stop and give up when he’s dead.

This may be the loudest, that he’s ever sung

I’ll break out of this hell hole,
I’m destined for something more than this,
Can’t stop ‘til I’ve given all I have,
Big dreams of a small town kid
Break out of the shackles,
Make the most of my only chance to live
Won’t stop ‘til I’ve given all I have,
Big dreams of a small town kid

(We are destined for more, something more than this, we are destined for this)

In four months, got a band, a few songs, and some fans,
And he dreams of his songs on the radio,
Played some shows at the pubs, in the town he grew up,
But the small stage just isn’t enough.
Signed his first record deal after a trip on the field,
On a makeshift tour down the east coast
This is it, his way out, his ticket further south,
What he’s always wanted the most

This may be the loudest, that they’ve heard him sing

I’ll break out of this hell hole,
I’m destined for something more than this,
Can’t stop ‘til I’ve given all I have,
Big dreams of a small town kid
Break out of the shackles,
Make the most of my only chance to live
Won’t stop ‘til I’ve given all I have,
Big dreams of a small town kid

On a stage, with his band, in front of thousands of fans,
And now hears his songs on the radio
All his goals, all his fears, over these countless years,
No longer just a dream in his head

The whole crowd goes silent, just to hear him sing

I’ll break out of this hell hole,
I’m destined for something more than this,
Can’t stop ‘til I’ve given all I have,
Big dreams of a small town kid
Break out of the shackles,
Make the most of my only chance to live
Won’t stop ‘til I’ve given all I have,
Big dreams of a small town kid

I’ll break out of this hell hole,
I’m destined for something more than this,
Can’t stop ‘til I’ve given all I have,
Big dreams of a small town kid
Break out of the shackles,
Make the most of my only chance to live
Won’t stop ‘til I’ve given all I have,
Big dreams of a small town kid

(We are destined for more,
Something more than this,
We are destined for this)
