Gotta Get Out

A musical by Adam Gwon
Ordinary Days - Gotta Get Out Lyrics






I'm not usually inclined to take up useless conversations with a
Taxi Driver.
But I saw as I was walking all these taxis without passengers in constant circulation;
Without a destination.
And that's not what life should be about
So we're gonna get out
Cross the bridge, take the road to another state
We'll sit back through the noise and traffic and wait
For some kind of scenery change
Wait till the view from our windows is strange

Trust me I'm not crazy
I can see you making faces in the rearview mirror.
I will pay you what the meter says just drive me up the highway
I don't care how far the way is
I guess what I'm trying to say is.
In the bike line of life sometimes you gotta get out.

Weren't you listening? I don't know where to.
You're the professional!
You should be making these kinds of decisions

I am really not a person who is qualified to tell you where we should be going.
I mean I just left my boyfriend standing back there on the sidewalk
Which is bad enough without disclosing...
He was actually proposing.
That's it!
There isn't any doubt
That I gotta get out hit the gas make a turn let this taxi squeak.
Cuz there isn't a thing in the world that I need
More than someplace my head can be clear
Probably miles and miles from here.
I don't mean to freak, and I don't mean to shout
But right now GOD, I really gotta get out
I can't stay here anymore
I just gotta get out
Though I still don't really know what I am getting out for

I should be near him and christ feel happy
but it's like somethings changed inside of my DNA
I just want to tell him that I'm lost and that I'm frightened
but somethings there that smothers all the words I want to say.

So how I can be what makes him happy?
When I can't even make a promise that I will stay?
I've gotten used to keeping all this space between us

And when he looks right at me
I just want to run away

So I gotta get out
Yes the only thing to do
Is to get myself out
And accept the fact we're through
We won't get that far
Staying where we are

Oh my god stop the car!
I gotta get out!
