Break The Іce Lyrics - John Farnham


Soundtrack: Woody Woodpecker Goes to Camp

Song Lyrics

Break The Іce Song Lyrics


Frozen in silence
Facing it alone
Gotta keep my cool
Make 'em think I'm made of stone
It's a game of wills we're playing
Our nerves are made of steel
Balanced on the edges of everything we feel
It's gonna take all we've got just to make it through this night
Gotta feeling right through my skin
And it's cutting like a knife

Get ready to break the ice
Feels like time is standing still
Aiming right for your heart
Ready to take another spill
Only you can make it right
You can break the ice inside of me

A single minded passion
A solitary stand
I thought I was alone
Left out in the cold again
So I'm giving you all I've got
I'm gonna make it through this night
And even though I could fall
I'm prepared to lose the fight

Get ready to break the ice
Feels like time is standing still
Aiming right for your heart
Ready to take another spill
Get ready to break the ice
Feels like time is standing still
Aiming right for your heart
Ready to take another spill
Only you can make it right
You can break the ice

Get ready to break the ice
Feels like time is standing still
Aiming right for your heart
Ready to take another spill
Get ready to break the ice
Feels like time is standing still
Aiming right for your heart
Ready to take another spill
Get ready to break the ice

Artist Info:


John Farnham is considered an esteemed person in Australian music due to his extraordinary vocal talent and energetic stage activity. John has remained professionally active and continued to successfully evolve his skills for several decades, starting in the late 1960s with the hit single "Sadie (The Cleaning Lady)." His 1986 album "Whispering Jack" had been one of the bestsellers in the history of Australia. Dealing most times with issues of elasticity and how people can express their emotional baggage through music, Farnham found himself in the pantheon of gods for Australian music.

Annotations and Meaning:


The song "Break The Ice" by John Farnham deals with themes of vulnerability, determination, and emotional confrontation. In the lyrics, it is sung, "Frozen in silence / Facing it alone," meaning one is isolated and metaphorically frozen to express inner feelings. This image of being "frozen" suggests that there is an emotional state of being practically stuck, so making the first move or saying the first words in a tense situation is almost impossible.
The chorus, "Get ready to break the ice / Feels like time is standing still / Aiming right for your heart / Ready to take another spill," adopts the metaphor for overcoming barriers of communication and relationship dynamics. Somehow, this communicates the intensity and high stakes of making oneself vulnerable or taking a risk for the sake of emotional honesty and connection.
The next lines, "Only you can make it right / You can break the ice inside of me," point to the help another person can offer in making this emotional thawing happen, therefore suggesting that mutual effort and reciprocation are an imperative aspect in breaking the emotional barriers. This song represents the kind of inner strength and courage that it takes in facing and eventually defeating one's weakness, portraying an anthem for personal development and relationship building.
