"Home Video # 22. - Outside - My wife likes this song because it contains the line “I want to have a party tonight”. She likes that because she’s never heard me say that in real life. I hope you like it!"

.. John Gorka - Outside (2020)

 


Outside (Lyrics)


I just want to get a little bit out of my head
I just want to get a little bit out of my head
What I want is what I said, get a little bit outside of my head
I just want to get a little bit out of my head

I want to get a couple hundred miles from here
I want to get a couple hundred miles from here
I've hung my hat in disgrace, now I just want to get out of this place
I want to get a couple hundred miles from here
I want to have a party tonight

Get a little wild at a party tonight
Get my head to the level of a flying kite
Or be digging in the garden of delight
I want to have a party tonight

Want to make a new story in the glory of the morning light
Want to make a new story in the glory of the morning light
Beat back sorrow for a little while Do it again with a little more style
Make a new story in the glory of the morning light.

 



 


Want to ride on the river till the river takes my cares away
Want to ride on the river till the river takes my cares away
Want to ride on the river till the river runs dry
Or I grow wings and learn to fly
Want to ride on the river till the river takes my cares away


Want to make a new story in the glory of the morning light
Want to make a new story in the glory of the morning light
Beat back sorrow for a little while
Do it again with a little more style
Make a new story in the glory of the morning light

Want to ride on the river till the river takes my cares away
Want to ride on the river till the river takes my cares away
Want to ride on the river till the river runs dry
Or I grow wings and learn to fly
Want to ride on the river till the river takes my cares away

Away, away, away...
