"Daybreak" is an uptempo pop song performed by Barry Manilow in 1976. It was composed by Manilow and Adrienne Anderson. The single version was recorded live with the female backup group Lady Flash.

The song reached number 23 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100[1] and number 7 on the Adult Contemporary chart.[2] On the Cash Box Top 100 it peaked at number 21 for two weeks. It was a somewhat bigger hit in Canada, on both charts in which it appeared.

"Daybreak" first appeared on Barry's 1976 album This One's for You in a studio version. It is also prominently featured in the John Waters film Serial Mom (1994), starring Kathleen Turner. "Daybreak" was followed by the single, "It's Just Another New Year's Eve".
