Halestorm - Break In (feat. Amy Lee)


Hales torm - Break In - Meaning of the song


Lzzy Hale explained the meaning of the song:


"For me, it's about somebody special in my life. I'm extremely lucky to be surrounded by people who love me and take me for who I am - as well as all of the weird stuff that comes with me [Laughs]. I love that line, 'You let me fall apart without letting go.'. The people who surround me have let me do that. They let me make my mistakes, but they don't let go. It's a realistic look at love and what real love means to me."

Evanescence's Amy Lee can be found on the 2020 Halestorm Reimagined EP. Lee and Halestorm recorded the new interpretation in October 2019 at a Nashville studio with producer Nick Raskulinecz, who had previously worked with both bands. "We did it performance-style, literally next to each other in the same room - from beginning of song to end of song, singing with each other," Lzzy Hale recalled. "I've never done anything like that, but especially with a female singer of your prowess." "What I love about dueting on that song with Amy Lee is that it started out as a love song that I wrote for my significant other but when we sing it together, it's this act of unity, especially with the two of us being women and being women musicians. It's like we have each other's backs. And the lyrics mean something completely different when I sing it."

Break in - Lyrics

Put your lighter in the air and lead me back home

When it's all said and done I'll follow the echoes

I hear you night after night calling out my name

And I find myself running to meet you

I didn't want to escape

From the bricks that I laid down


You are the only one

The only one that sees me

Trusts me and believes me

You are the only one

The only one that knows me

And in the dark you show me

Yeah it's perfectly reckless

Damn, you leave me defenseless

So break in

Break in


You let me fall apart without letting go

Then you pick up the pieces and you make me whole

I didn't want to escape

From the bricks that I laid down


You are the only one

The only one that sees me

Trusts me and believes me

You are the only one

The only one that knows me

And in the dark you show me

Yeah it's perfectly reckless

Damn you leave me defenseless

So break in


And take everything I have

Until there is nothing left

Until it's just your voice in my head

And when the lights come on

You see me as I am

You're still inside me


You are the only one

The only one that sees me

Trusts me and believes me

You are the only one

The only one that knows me

And in the dark you show me

Yeah it's perfectly reckless

Damn you leave me defenseless

So break in

Break in


Put your lighter in the air and lead me back home
