Swing Out Sister - Breakout Lyrics

And breakout

When explanations make no sense
When every answer's wrong
You're fighting with lost confidence
All expectations gone

The time has come to make or break
Move on, don't hesitate
And breakout

Don't stop to ask
And now you've found a break to make at last
You've got to find a way
Say what you want to say

When situations never change
Tomorrow looks unsure
Don't leave your destiny to chance
What are you waiting for
The time has come to make your break

Don't stop to ask
And now you've found a break to make at last
You've got to find a way
Say what you want to say

Don't stop to ask
Now you've found a break to make at last
You've got to find a way
Say what you want to say

Some people stop at nothing
If you're searching for something
Lay down the law
Shout out for more
Breakout and shout
Day in day out


Don't stop to ask
And now you've found a break to make at last
You've got to find a way
Say what you want to say
And breakout

Don't stop to ask
And now you've found a break to make at last
You've got to find a way
Say what you want to say
And breakout...

(Don't) Lay down the law (stop)
Shout out for more (to ask)
Breakout and shout day in day out
Ooh, breakout



Lay down the law
Shout out for more
Breakout and shout day in day out

    her voice is like caramel!

  12. Jared F.

    Just wanted to say "Swing Out Sisters" is a name of a hentai sauce for any of you guys adding to our degenerate lists

  13. Roger A. Mueller

    I remember seeing this in heavy rotation on MTV in the late summer of 1987. I LOVE Swing Out Sister and was blessed to meet the elegant Corinne Drewery twice.

  14. ohh

    I hated for the song to end, it's so beautiful

  15. Marcos Antonio

    Parabéns pelo video pela música .me acompanha muitos anos

  16. C Stoff

    Why does anyone watch this and then dislike it? One of the most underrated groups EVER!

  17. Hebrew Sistah

    Who's still listening in 2020???????!!!!!!!

  18. Shannon Perdue

    This era need to bring back the 80's some way some how

  19. C Es

    Anyone else think she's cute with her pageboy hairdo?

    Dan 1

    Corinne Drewery is a beauty. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=82MlCD1gsdM

    Gail Wood

    She is pretty with any hairdo but I think she is prettier with longer hair.

  20. clineshaunt

    When I first saw this video when it came out on MTV, the rhythms of this song left me thinking I had to hear this again and more from this band in general. And of course being a guy, my first impression was, oh man she's hot!

  21. Gino Barto

    When there was music with a positive attitude & message instead of the depressive stuff now ...

  22. The Only Separation


  23. Brandon Thomas

    I'd give anything to go back in time and to have experienced the night life in the 80s


    The nightlife in the 80's were amazing, great music and fashion -- IF Dr. Brown would ever finish that Deloreon time machine, I'd go straight to 1985 and stay!

  24. Mathew Reichardt


  25. Jennifer Jaybee

    I would have put solid money on this being Gloria Estefan/Miami Soundmachine...

  26. Julio Cesar Inzunza

    I live in the Western hemispher, sorry..!! Strange right...????

  27. luiz pedroso

    Aqui ouvindo esse grande sucesso, 20/01/2020.

    Z Z

  38. Jim Fath

    Whose idea was it to bleach the color out of this video? Do yourself a favor and look this up on Daily motion (or here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dzqm4XVkMJ4). It's super campy 1980's in it's glory. UBER colorful. This is a travesty.

  39. Galaxy Tab A

    Like si algún chileno escucha esta música

  40. hpiccov

    Me gusta el videito, precioso su corte y estilo de cabello.

    I love Swing out sister and other sophisti-pop artists like Style Council, and Prefab Sprout.

    Orange Juice

    The members of Swing Out Sister are showing off their navel/bellybutton 😂

  54. MrRibby88

    Remember when we were teenagers and we laughed at our parents for listening to 30-year old music? Here we are.

    Vincent Ruvo

    Listened to their Greatest Hits album many times. Enjoyable retro music!


    Remember That!!!

    Margo Johnson

    MrRibby88 love this song. ❤️

    Daena Smith

    Hey, in my mind I'm still a teenager...my body would argue otherwise though....heh

  55. MusicaMania!

    80's the maximum!

  56. Van Johnson

    This song is so close to my heart you would not believe it.jan2020.

  57. Rusty Shackleford

    I play 80s music in my house all the time. When my grand kids come to visit they ask me why I don't play modern music. I tell there isn't any.

  58. Tee Darnice

    Man I love this song!!

  59. Brian H

    People were happier back then. Now everyone has their noses up each others azz. Enjoy life, be happy, be nice and help others when you can.

    Brian H

    @Andre King Your ignorance is noted Andre.

    Barbara Allen

    Well put Brian H.

    Toby Morris

    If you were white male, yes. I'm one and yup, live was easier for me to be an a$$hole, now i'm a better man for having to watch my mouth. Trump is the ultimate male fantasy: say and do whatever enters your reptilian mind: someone will cover you

    Brian H

    @Toby Morris You are a racist and a mess Toby.

    Astuteous Maximus

    Nah it is just an illusion. There was no social media back in those days

  63. Ron McKelvie

    possibly the most perfect neck in the entire history of art...... discuss.

  64. TheMightyAntar

    This record should have a credit for her hairstylist - reviving the Louise Brooks style was inspirational.

  65. Kleytons


  66. Joe Thomas

    What happened ? I remember a lot of vivid color in this video.


    Maybe you're mixing this up with the video of All Around the World by Lisa Stansfield. Both videos have a similar look but Stansfield switches back and forth from b/w to color.

    Cholma LJ

    Nah, he's thinking of this color version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dzqm4XVkMJ4 posted by "Tavo DLF".

  67. Liz Se
