Don’t Let Me Go Home
(© 2009 Dan Schaumann)

There’s a silence in the room
It’s a sound we’ve never heard before
An inflammatory parade of unfamiliar times

An embellished afternoon
A rose beside the reservoir
A capillary remains to seal the widened tie

Please don’t let me go home tonight

Facing backwards, moving forth
That’s when we’ll finally meet again
Opposing our terrain in these new familiar times

Oh, the pillar of our cord
The courage for the weakening
On the precipice of fall, you know you’re stable in my arms

Please don’t let me go home tonight
Please don’t let me go home tonight
Please don’t let me go home tonight
Please darling, don’t let me go home

And we say the overconformity really demands brothers in decent post-natal, scenic buildings using women averaging genetic provisional pandas, splendidly and crookedly measuring grandiose infectious retaliating hoverflies, inflaming behaviour tubes of cystic photographs

You can’t let me go home, don’t let me go home
You can’t let me go home, don’t let me go home
You can’t let me go home, don’t let me go home
You can’t let me go home

Because I’m already here
I’m already here
I’m already here
I’m already here

 

City Walls
(© 2007 Dan Schaumann)

It felt like it was such a long and distant time ago
But it’s merely been a month and yet the indications show
As you stare… through your… window

The elevator to your room is cramped and turns you ill
The speed and greed is untoward so you recall the stillness
As you stare… out there… below

The sun don’t shine on the streets of crime
You’re living in the city walls

It was only time but you’re now confined
To living in the city walls

No the sun don’t shine on the streets of crime
You’re living in the city… living in the city walls

This urban institution with its tainted, spiteful air
Central to suburbia, community widespread
Past the rural limits and the barren countryside
Finally you’ll come to see the land so free and wild

Potential for a whole lot more
Just step outside the city walls

Just free your eye, diversify
And step outside the city walls

Potential for a whole lot more
Just step outside the city… you gotta step outside

The city walls… city walls… city walls…
City walls… city walls… city walls…

There’s a new-found road to aspire for truth
Of what you thought you’d known and desired in your youth
With your small-town mind and your small-town soul
Now paralysed by city life as you recall

The happiness in your back yard
The peace inside your reservoir
Of what you know is already there
Rediscover undercover and reject

The city walls… city walls… city walls…

Now you’re not so blind with your open mind
You’ve stepped outside the city walls

You found the time to release confines
Of living in the city walls

Yeah you’re not so blind with your open mind
You’ve stepped outside the city… stepped outside the city walls

 

Days Of Karma
(© 2008 Dan Schaumann)

You don’t know intuition like the dark don’t know the sun
And what’s not known is fabricated firm
Trust my premonition of the hours having won
And settling in

A dormant revolution lies awaiting birth to come
But what’s not known’s still fabricated firm
An evil eye, a parasite, my powers are overcome
And settling in

Lacking the days of karma, you bought the wine instead
How can you be happy with that cloud above your bed?
Packing the days to follow with drips of congo red
Still I lie to satisfy that cloud above your bed
Lacking the days of karma
Lacking the days, and you’re a lucky girl

An instant satisfaction has been paid for one of loss
The doorway to your mind is through my steel
A doubtful superstition has refrained to bear the cost
And settles in

Lacking the days of karma, you bought the wine instead
How can you be happy with that cloud above your bed?
Packing the days to follow with drips of congo red
Still I lie to satisfy that cloud above your bed
Lacking the days of karma
Lacking the days

And you’re a lucky girl, girl
You’re a lucky girl, girl

Lacking the days of karma, you bought the wine instead
How can you be happy with that cloud above your bed?
Packing the days to follow with drips of congo red
Still I lie to satisfy that cloud above your bed

Oh yeah you’re lacking the days of karma, shadow up ahead
The bat is blind but leaves behind a cloud above your bed
Lacking the days of karma, you feed them all instead
With your colossal power to your cloud above my bed

Oh yeah you’re lacking the days of karma
Lacking the days, and you’re a lucky girl, girl

Oh yeah you’re lacking the days of karma
Lacking the days

And you’re a lucky girl, girl
You’re a lucky girl, girl

 

Leicester Square
(© 2009 Dan Schaumann)

Leicester Square
I stand here and it takes me to the place
You are
Right now

Anywhere
Between these iron frames there lies a gate
To your heart
Right now

Leicester Square
The film that stars the characters of us
Cast of gold
And red

Premiered
Amidst the perfect playwright in the sun
As we strolled
Ahead

But ever since your resignation
I’ve been looking for a soul to steal
Cause you still had mine when I left you
And all I see as I sit here’s
This box in my location
That separates the dream from real
It’s time we felt our love
There’s so much to discover here in Leicester Square

Leicester Square
The moon it sets on water while the trees
Glow blonde
Entwined

Overhead
The nightclubs beat the blackened skies away
Beyond
Your shine

Ever since your resignation
I’ve been looking for a soul to steal
Cause you still had mine when I left you
And all I see as I sit here’s
This box in my location
That separates the dream from real
It’s time we felt our love
There’s so much to discover here in Leicester Square

Standing here together here in Leicester Square
Hands are bound and hearts are near in Leicester Square
Standing here together here in Leicester Square
Why can’t we be together here in Leicester

Oh take me there
Hands are bound and hearts are near in Leicester
Yeah take me there
Standing here together here in Leicester
Oh take me there
Why can’t we be together

I stand here and it takes me to the place
You are
Right now

 

Overthrown
(© 2009 Dan Schaumann)

It’s cold enough in this town without you by my side
I’m feeling I’ve overthrown, delivered way too wide

Draw a breath, melt your lips, shake your hair, blow a kiss
With your circular smile and an elegant pitch
Roll the ball in reverse cause I ain’t too far behind

Lean away, look above for you’re capable of
A sustain to your soul through the rhythm of love
Toss a pill of our praise if I ain’t too misaligned

Overthrown, I’m on my way
Should have known I’d passed my stay
All I own, I’ve thrown away
Overthrown, you’ll catch someday

The beauty of innocence, I remember wishfully
Now it’s cast out in the street, it’s all part of history

Take a ride in a world of a passionate girl
You’re alive by the spark of a flame with a twirl
It’s a dual catapultion, inspired by one

There’s an odour of grace, an invisible race
A returned emanation entangles my face
Fuelled by propulsion, a drive of charm

Overthrown, I’m on my way
Should have known I’d passed my stay
All I own, I’ve thrown away
Overthrown, you’ll catch someday

I’ve been breaking, breaking down
Won’t you wake up to my sound
I’m over shakin’ up this ground
I’m on my way

It’s cold enough in this town without you by my side
I’m feeling I’ve overthrown…

 

Misty Water
(© 2008 Dan Schaumann)

Across the misty water
In his hold along the ancient stream
With a kiss he taught her
How the weather, it’s a love extreme

Bitter misty water
Such a distance from her blazing dream
With a twist he taught her
How with cold there often dawns a steam

Life’s a mystery tangle
There’s a rainbow over cloudy shores
Prism snaps an angle
And a colour from a pearl outpours

Hear the birds a-whistling
Through a territory conspired with snow
Steer their world by shifting
With the feathers of a common glow

So you can drink the misty water
The deep exists as he still taught her
Yeah you can drink the misty water
The fever missed but he still caught her

He wants to be
With nobody else, in the penetrating freeze
He’s just gotta show
That in this world full of contradiction
You sit back, and let pass, and hold on
And watch the river flow

Pass the misty water
And precipitated chill unseen
Here exists a shelter
In a place that’s only warm

So you can drink the misty water
The deep exists as he still taught her
Yeah you can drink the misty water
The fever missed but he still caught her

You can drink the misty water
You can drink it
You can drink the misty water
Oh cup your hands and dip in to show

You can drink the misty water
You can drink it
You can drink the misty water

 

The Tree That Took My Love
(© 2008 Dan Schaumann)

Lay me down in fields of green
The summer sun, it tastes as sweet as you
Fruits and flowers surround our dream
Our wish for native beauty has come true

Grounded now, I heard you spoke
Your burrowed seeds, your barren throat
Godforsaken tears, they choke from you

Our undergrowth is drying up
And I’ve had enough of this
Photosynthetic mindfuck

Burn it down, the branches wasting
Ashen ground incineration
Leaves of brown reciprocating
Resin from our hearts

Wrath of life reduced to stumps
A hand for hand, a trunk for trunk
It’s killing me, the tree that took my love

Developmental antidote
Emerges in a heartfelt note to you
A final chance to cast my vote
Of grafting and of germinating too

I’ll rub the stem, create the spark
You skin my name, I’ll ring your bark
Seeds the girdling end of fertile hope

Burn it down, the branches wasting
Ashen ground of expiration
Leaves of brown reciprocating
Resin from our hearts

The rising flame my only hope
A sacrificial fire of growth
It’s killing me, the tree that took my love

The tree that took my love
The tree that took my love
The tree that took my love…

The tree that took my love
The tree that took my love
The tree that took my love…

Clotted cells my heart will pump
Heavy swell, my sap will clump
If the canopy is free I’m jumping down

The tree that took my love
The tree that took my love
The tree that took my love…

The tree that took my love
The tree that took my love
The tree that took my love…

The tree that took my…

The tree that took my love

 

Comet
(© 2010 Dan Schaumann)

I’m so susceptible to those who build a hallway in my mind
Blown up material retains in there forever
There’s not a chance in hell I’ll exit through the doorway without
One more time where we entwine our flaming tails together

Caught up in crowns and ends and halos by the choir of our
Beating drums as we become a subdivided flow
The mystery deepens as you leave a trail of fire and I can’t die
No I can’t die

So young with open eyes
Closed while we improvise
Fading away as the
Years pass and I can’t die
I can’t die ’til you come round again

Out on the street tonight the people dance in celebration
Of the journey, seventy-five years
Is all I have to prove myself I am not a failure at this game
And I can’t die with that, oh lord

So young with open eyes
Closed while we improvise
Fading away as the
Years pass and I can’t die
I can’t die ’til you come round again
No I can’t die ’til you come round again

You’re my comet, you’re my life
Come around before I die
You’re my comet, you’re my life
Come around before I die

So young with open eyes
Closed while we improvise
Fading away as the
Years pass and I can’t die
I can’t die ’til you come round again
No I can’t die ’til you come round again

 

The Fighter
(© 2010 Dan Schaumann)

Oh the fighter with his heaven in his heart and his hell to behold
His desire is to remedy the scar of the flame to her soul
Oh denier with the heaviness imparted he dreams he could change
Cruel reminders of the innocence of love vs the means to remain

Persevere
Through your tears
Learn your lesson well

Oh the hour, will it speed or will it burn with a laboured old fuse
Not an answer to the plead, a deafly ear and a reason to lose
Oh the fighter will he stay or will he stray far away from his means
All the while through her silence and his tears he will conquer with the thrill of her nightmares

Oh the fighter
Oh the fighter
Oh the fighter
Oh the fighter

Oh the fighter
Oh the fighter
Oh the fighter
Oh the fighter

Oh the fighter will end it before it’s repaired
The fighter surrenders and shows that he cares
The fighter will end it before it’s repaired
The fighter surrenders and shows that he cares

Oh the fighter will end it before it’s repaired
The fighter surrenders and shows that he cares
The fighter will end it before it’s repaired
The fighter surrenders and shows that he cares

 

A Thousand Days Beneath The Sun
(© 2010 Dan Schaumann)

This bag of hearts, this tender vale
We’ll pick the berries as the mud gets in our nails
And it’s no barrier, as we hold hands when we walk home
By the bed I brush you down as we brush up our own

We’ll paint your four grey walls of gold
We’ll evade this frozen world and journey far away from all we know

Down the river we will ride
Archetypes of yesteryear, flow as we float by
And I’m a stranger to this voice in favour of all that we’ve done
Now we can run, we’ll get there

We’ll paint your four grey walls of gold
We’ll evade this frozen world and journey far away from all we know
In these four grey walls of gold
Speak to me your fantasy, let’s journey far away to spend a…

A thousand days beneath the sun
A thousand ways to show we’ve won
So many reasons to deceive the dusty moon
A thousand seas by which it feeds the ebb and bloom
Multiply by sixteen and add three hundred and ninety-six
Divide the ebb, ensure the bloom’s the sum
A thousand days beneath the sun
Yeah just make sure it’s not the ebb that comes
A thousand days beneath the sun

 

Universal Prayer
(© 2009 Dan Schaumann)

Just rest and breathe
And close your eyes but keep your mind from sleep
And hear
Me talk you through

Your feet, and your legs
And your body, chest and neck
And your arms, now your head
So heavenly

You’re alone, no one here
Just the golden sun and the tender auburn sand
Feel the waves
Lap at your feet

Now you walk, miles of peace
As your soft, warm skin’s enveloped by the breeze
And you bathe
In this atmosphere

In the dusk, up ahead
An oasis of a magical degree
You can sense
Him standing there

Closer still, purely drawn
As the golden-orange sunset lights the sky
You have reached
Your destiny

Then you move into my arms which I have joyously extended for you, and I greet the beauty in front of me that I have long been awaiting. Our eyes catch and delve deeply as we hold each other tightly, embracing under the shimmering, starlit evening sky. Gently, I whisper in your ear…

There’s nothing left to ask
There’s nothing left to fear
There’s nothing left to try
To prove how much I cherish you

There’s nothing in this world
But a universal prayer
To reach my arms around you
From the edges of despair

From all that lives and breathes
To matter with no path
From geologic entities
To insubstantial marks

There’s nothing in this world
But a universal prayer
To tell you how much
This love would mean to me

To tell you how much
This love would mean to me

To tell you how much
This love would mean to me

 

What We Would Have Done
(© 2008 Dan Schaumann)

If romance beckoned, like we sensed with our predestination
If real life offered passion, bliss and fun
If love we’d birthed, across the earth I’d take you on vacation
If only… this is what we would have done:

We’d spend the day at Byron Bay, the soaring house aglow
We’d walk for miles in the springtime sun
Astoundingly across the sea, the dolphins stage a show
If only… this is what we would have done

The paradisal stretch upon where surfers bear their joy
Percussive skins with bells like beating drums
Synchronic and eurhythmic like a golden girl to boy
If only… this is what we would have done

Stranded on a summer night, the bay of roses bound
The rock is cold, the sweetness pads our tongues
Traverse a thrill atop the hill, above precinctual sounds
If only… this is what we would have done

Amidst the virgin bush we trek, we grace the stream alone
The tree above proclaiming us as one
The water blue, just me and you, a place to call our home
If only… this is what we would have done

Further north we venture now, the tropic impulse starts
Inspires a humid zeal within our lungs
The forest green, the beach pristine, adjoining like our hearts
If only… this is what we would have done

The culmination of our time spent in this sacred land
Encompasses a safe, yet stirring plunge
We reach beneath the coral reef, elation, hand in hand
If only… this is what we would have done

So we’d leave behind the frosty vales, the frigid, foggy nights
A source of temperate union we’d become
Living, loving, in Australia, if I weren’t such a fucking failure
If only… that was not what I’d become

If only… this is what we would have done

 

Dancing With Dot
(© 2008 Dan Schaumann)

Nineteen fifty five,
Young man, feel so alive
Ballroom star
But the greatest honour, biggest prize,
Was the beauty of my partner’s eyes
Lovers hearts

Married soon, the night results
In an overwhelming bridal waltz
Tears of bliss
Together moving everywhere
So perfectly, our rhythm shared
Swinging hips

’64, rock ‘n’ roll
On the floor, allegro
With my wife
’71, world’s unsure
Marched off to the Vietnam war
Fight for life

For weeks at a time on the battlefront line
Only memories holding us near
I picture the scene where she gives up the dream
Cause a life without love turns to fear
Then the telegram comes after months on the run
Choreographic union unclear
With me in her arms
She’d never have been in harms way
I wish it was me who’d moved on

’79, ’86
Lost without her sweet kiss
Moving slow
’91, ’94
Music’s not the same no more
And I’m getting old

Enter the millennium
I try to find my legs again
It’s been so long
I met her at the RSL
The memories of my sweet girl
Stir so strong

She faced a similarity
In losing him while overseas
Widowed young
It’s clear we felt our hearts unite
As we danced with the band tonight
But is it wrong

That dancing with Dot reminds me a lot
Of the wife I once had now long gone
With me in her arms
Reminds her of charms of her man
I wish that we’d both just move on

Why can’t we both just move on
I wish that we’d both just move on
Why can’t we both just move on
I wish that we’d both just move on
Move on
Move on
Move on

Cause dancing with Dot reminds me a lot
Of the wife I once had now long gone
With me in her arms
Reminds her of charms of her man
I wish that we’d both just move on





These are the official lyrics to the single Lady Gowrie Lookout.

Lady Gowrie Lookout
(© 2011 Dan Schaumann)

My name is James
And her name is Georgie
A calendar year’s gone by so far

Her beautiful smile
The brightest in Sydney
A scene that’ll never fall apart

We come here today
To manifest our love
Below the foundations of this land

The heads of the times
They reside above
We pray that our wish forms their command

We paint our names
Here at Lady Gowrie Lookout
Georgie & James
Here at Lady Gowrie Lookout
A year today
And it will be forever

We’ll soak our feet
As we sign our story
By this cool and peaceful bay

But we’re up to nothing at all
For the pass of the ferry
We’ll cover our marks and we will wave

As we paint our names
Here at Lady Gowrie Lookout
Georgie & James
Here at Lady Gowrie Lookout
A year today
And it will be forever

A year today
And it’ll be a time to face behind
And look back on the past
Prize the ways on which we’ve gained
And survey what we’ve lost
If we find our old live sign has
Tapered from those rocks
We’ll return
We will return
We will return

They last a few years
Never a lifetime
We tire and seek a fresh new start

But we’ll interfere
If this becomes of us
We’ll go back with our paint and touch it up

And repaint our names
Here at Lady Gowrie Lookout
Georgie & James
Here at Lady Gowrie Lookout
A year today
And it will be forever
A year today
And it will be forever





These are the official lyrics to the 6 tracks that appear on Comfort Zone.

True To You
(© 2006 Dan Schaumann)

Remembering us in full swing and laughing all the time
It’s sad to see regretfully our paths no longer wind
Our journey from these days has gone to take another ride
I’m overcome, I can’t go on, I need you by my side

As with everything you’ve come to bring me in the past you’ve tried
To soothe me with your calming words and reinstate my pride
So thankfully, I’m glad to see how time has kept us true
This loyalty means all to me, I owe my life to you

People calling out to you
People falling down for you
People who will see you through
People who are true to you

Those times when darkness shines more so than light in our short lives
We’ve proved to be security upon which we both thrive
So whether we’re together or a thousand miles from view
I’ll overcome, I will go on, I owe my life to you

People calling out to you
People falling down for you
People who will see you through
People who are true to you

Like a bird on the wing it’s a wonderful thing
I’ve been longing to sing about you my friend
Whenever I please, I see you on the breeze
I know that you’ll be there right till the end

Ain’t it just so, with the way that things go
How our fate will just flow, make us rise then descend
Fortunate though, through this living rodeo
Certain to know that we’ll always depend

People calling out to you
People falling down for you
People who will see you through
People who are true to you

 

I Don’t Smoke
(© 2005 Dan Schaumann)

Stuck behind an unseen wall
Distinguishing nothing at all
Outside the boundaries of my barrier
Who knows who could be a carrier
Of a social disregard
Cause I feel as though it’s hard to deal with

Slam right through my unseen wall
But still I leave unseen your call
Persevere with your attempting
To steer me from my venting
Of your social disregard
That I feel is oh so hard to deal with

Sorry for not obliging, these streets are a joke
Recurring expectance, I don’t smoke
Getting to know you, now I sadly revoke
My misdirectness, you don’t smoke

A tragic scene you soon unfold
A wasted dream is all you hold
Of all the things in life you’d rather
Had surrendered but your father
Who died alone and cold
By the tree beside the road

To think behind my unseen wall
Had I left unseen your call
You’d have walked the streets for hours
For a place to buy some flowers
For the funeral this afternoon
With an added sense of lonesome gloom

Sorry for not obliging, these streets are a joke
Recurring expectance, I don’t smoke

Getting to know you, now I sadly revoke
My misdirectness, you don’t smoke

Were you lost inside, indignified, the world’s ignoring
With foolish pride I stepped outside to hear your story

To be blown away with what you say, anticipating
You to provoke me for a smoke, so irritating

I don’t smoke. You don’t smoke. We don’t smoke.
I don’t smoke. You don’t smoke. We don’t smoke.

 

Live As Two
(© 2005 Dan Schaumann)

Been thinking to myself lately
I’m losing my identity
Cause I’ve turned into you and you to me

And it worries me now I can see
You’re acting like it’s meant to be
That I’m so much of you as you are me

Do you ever wonder how as one we’ll survive?
I never should have loved you, you’ve acquired my life

I have always been a part of you
I exist the way you want me to
Independence don’t come into view
Maybe we should try to live as two

I’ve longed for your intimacy
Appreciate your company
But you’re becoming way too much for me

I fear that you’ll eventually
Completely take my liberty
That’s why I must selfishly ask you

Do you ever wonder how as one we’ll survive?
Wouldn’t it be better to regain our lives?

I have always been a part of you
I exist the way you want me to
Independence don’t come into view
Maybe we should try to live as two
Live as two, yeah

I have always been a part of you
I exist the way you want me to
Independence don’t come into view
Maybe we should try to live as two

I want to say to you, I want to say to you
That you’re drowning me, I can’t get out away from you
Cause you’re constantly beside me even when I want to hide me
And I really can’t be spending every day with you
I’ll be adding to my vanity but saving from insanity
Cause baby it just cannot be this way with you
I really wanna feel for you, but in the meantime we just need to
Live as two

 

Don’t Want To Know
(© 2005 Dan Schaumann)

All the people in the street
That you fraudulently greet
A psychological defeat
But I don’t want to know

Still you get ‘em everywhere
Rope ‘em in without a care
And count the profits that you share
But I don’t want to know
Don’t tell me so

Too many times your word’s been spoken
Paper, TV and radio
Now on the street the ice you’ve broken

Need to move on, you’re hesitating
Keeping me here for all I owe
Business has gone, cause I’m not waiting
Well I don’t want to know
So don’t tell me so

There’s a hundred deals a day
With the strategy you play
You’re on a working holiday
And I don’t want to know

But I’m betting deep inside
All you want to do is hide
Your integrity will slide
So stop with your show
Cause I don’t want to know

Too many times your word’s been spoken
Paper, TV and radio
Now on the street the ice you’ve broken

Need to move on, you’re hesitating
Keeping me here for all I owe
Business has gone, cause I’m not waiting
Well I don’t want to know
So don’t tell me so

Too many times your word’s been spoken
Paper, TV and radio
Now on the street the ice you’ve broken
Well I don’t want to know

Need to move on, you’re hesitating
Keeping me here for all I owe
Business has gone, cause I’m not waiting
Well I don’t want to know
So don’t tell me so
And stop with your show
Cause I don’t want to know

 

More Than I Can Handle
(© 2005 Dan Schaumann)

Romantic movie
Where you said to me
That everyone must chase their heart

Not like that movie
You prove right to me
That my acting doesn’t suit the part

Although I’m ever grateful for all that you’ve done
I’ll wait till you say I’m the one, it’s you who I adore

Thinkin’ bout the time we’ve spent is more than I can handle
But I’ll not be dampened that you drew the line
Everyone and everything I meet will never make my life complete
Until the day where you’ll be mine

Now that you’ve moved on
And you’ve found someone
To give your love to every day

But if that someone
Should ever move on
Serendipity will come my way

Hope you’re ever grateful for all that I’ve done
Why can’t you see that I’m the one, it’s you who I adore

Thinkin’ bout the time we’ve spent is more than I can handle
But I’ll not be dampened that you drew the line
Everyone and everything I meet will never make my life complete
Until the day where you’ll be mine

Thinkin’ bout the time we’ve spent is more than I can handle
But I’ll not be dampened that you drew the line
Everyone and everything I meet will never make my life complete
Until the day where you’ll be mine
Until the day where you’ll be mine

 

Comfort Zone
(© 2005 Dan Schaumann)

Your careless days were not to stay
Your childhood has flown away
As you begin another day
Of work that you can’t stand, but the money in your hand
At the end of the day, you only do it for the pay

The weekend comes, how glad you are
But happiness still seems so far
You drink alone beside the bar
Thinking back on times you regret you left behind
For security of home stuck here in your comfort zone

Left here once before, couldn’t take no more
I don’t understand what drove you back again
Sad and all alone stuck in your comfort zone
Makes no sense to me that
You’re living your life where you don’t want to be
Now bury your fears and fight to break free

You pack your bags up once again
Assured that this will be the end
Get your life back on the mend
Move to what will be your place of destiny
New job, new life, new soul, whole new opportunity
The road looks tough from here but at last your dreams you see
And if you survive your fears, you can call yourself free

Left here once before, couldn’t take no more
I still don’t understand what drove you back again
Sad, bored, depressed and hey you’re all alone
Stuck here in your comfort zone
Now you clearly see
You were living your life where you don’t want to be
You buried your fears, you fought to break free

Life can offer so much more, now
Take that risk and leave your comfort zone
Once you step outside that door, now
A world awaits to call your home

A year has passed, you’ve reached your goal
Of work and friends and life and soul
Out of your shell, out of your hole
Thinking back on times that you’re glad you left behind
For security of home in your brand new comfort zone…
