Fierce and firing away.

She’s still on Glee as the popular character Rachel Berry, but 27-year-old Lea Michele is moving onto bigger things in her music career with her first single outside of the show. As the leadoff release from her forthcoming album Louder, “Cannonball” was written by Sia and produced by Benny Blanco and Stargate. The eleven track album also features credits from Chris Braide (“If You Say So”), Christina Perri (“Empty Handed”) and Matt Rad (“Cue The Rain”), among others. It will out on March 4.

“CANNONBALL”

[Intro]
Break down (x2)

[Verse 1]
(Break down)
I was scared to death, I was losing my mind
(Break down)
I couldn’t close my eyes, I was pacing all night
(But now)
I think I found the light at the end of the tunnel
(A light out)
I couldn’t find the truth, I was going under

[Pre-Chorus]
But I won’t hide inside
I’ve got to get out
Got to get out (x3)
Lonely inside and light the fuse
Light it now (x3)

[Chorus]
And now I will start living today
Today, today, I close the door
I’ve got this new beginning and I will fly
I’ll fly
Like a cannonball (x3)
I’ll fly (x3)
Like a cannonball

[Verse 2]
(Freedom)
I let go of fear and the peace came quickly
(Freedom)
I was in the dark and then it hit me
I chose suffering and pain and the fog and rain
I know I gotta get out into the world again

[Pre-Chorus]
But I won’t hide inside
I’ve got to get out
Got to get out (x3)
Lonely inside and light the fuse
Light it now (x3)

[Chorus]
And now I will start living today
Today, today, I close the door
I’ve got this new beginning and I will fly
I’ll fly
Like a cannonball (x3)
I’ll fly (x3)
Like a cannonball

[Middle 8]
(Break down)
I was scared to death, I was losing my mind
(Break down)
I gotta get out into the world again

[Chorus]
And now I will start living today
Today, today, I close the door
I’ve got this new beginning and I will fly
I’ll fly
Like a cannonball (x3)
I’ll fly (x3)
Like a cannonball (x3)
I’ll fly (x3)
Like a cannonball
