lyrics

New shirt, new shoes, new you
New habits, values, attitudes and
No friends, no recompense
get dizzy from the latitude
Yeah, they’ll say you’re crazy but
you go your own imaginary way

It’s you and only you
with no one to impersonate and
You might disintegrate or, worse,
You’ll over compensate
But, you can’t go wrong here
It’s the roll that you were born to play

It’s your great escape
No more walking in the rain
No more falling way too far
You can lie in bed awake
Nothing tearing you apart
Doesn’t matter who you are
‘Cause you’ll never be the same
That’s your great escape

Throw out the arguments
In retrospect claim ignorance
And, no disrespect, but
Why pay reverence to dissonance?
And don’t break your silence
‘Cause it’s better than an old cliché

It’s your great escape
No more walking in the rain
No more falling way too far
You can lie in bed awake
Nothing tearing you apart
Doesn’t matter who you are
‘Cause you’ll never be the same
That’s your great escape

Oh, time will tell. It’s just as well
Lemons to lemonade
Live and learn and crash and burn
Run tail between your legs
Life is rough but close enough for
Horseshoes and for hand grenades

It’s your great escape
No more walking in the rain
No more falling way too far
You can lie in bed awake
Nothing tearing you apart
Doesn’t matter who you are
‘Cause you’ll never be the same
That’s your great escape

No more walking in the rain
No more falling way too far
You just lie in bed awake
Nothing tearing you apart
Doesn’t matter who you are
‘Cause you’ll never be the same
That’s your great escape
That’s your great escape

about

Laura Marie San Antonio, Texas

Now the reason we're here
Every man, every woman
Is to help each other
Stand by each other
When love walks in the room
Everybody stand up
Oh it's good, good good
Say I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you - The Pretenders

At some point in my life, I heard this song and decided (before I knew I decided) that my life purpose was to send a "message of love". Be <3
