Jason Bateman: Once again – Kelly Clarkson!

Kelly Clarkson:
“Grew up in a small town
And when the rain would fall down
I’d just stare out my window
Dreaming of a could-be
And if I’d end up happy
I would pray.

I wondered what it could be
No one else could hear me
All I wanted was
I wanted to belong here
But something felt so wrong here
So I pray
I could breakaway

I’ll spread my wings and I’ll learn how to fly
I’ll do what it takes ’til I touch the sky
I’ll make a wish
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway
Out of the darkness and into the sun
But I won’t forget all the ones that I loved
I’ll take a risk
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway.

Wanna feel the warm breeze
Sleep under a palm tree
Feel the rush of the ocean
Get onboard a fast train
Travel on a jet plane, far away
And breakaway.

I’ll spread my wings and I’ll learn how to fly
I’ll do what it takes ’til I touch the sky
I’ll make a wish
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway
Out of the darkness and into the sun
But I won’t forget all the ones that I loved
I’ll take a risk
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway.

Buildings with a hundred floors
Swinging around wild indoors
Maybe I don’t know where they’ll take me, but
Gotta keep moving on, moving on
Fly away, breakaway.

I’ll spread my wings and I’ll learn how to fly
Though it’s not easy to tell you goodbye
Make a wish
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway
Out of the darkness and into the sun
But I won’t forget the place I come from
I gotta take a risk
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway, breakaway, breakaway.”
