Barnum - Out There Lyrics

1980 Broadway
Barnum the Musical - Out There Lyrics

Staying home, living day by day
May be safe, but it can't be duller.
Seeing things only black and gray
When the world is alive with color.
Doing just as your neighbors do
May be wise, but it ain't so clever.
Every man has a dream or two
Let 'em go and they're gone forever.

Out there somewhere just out of sight.
There's a world that's blazing with light.
Ain't each man alive got the right?
To stray just a mite from the straight and narrow,
Shoot through the night like a flaming arrow.

Turning back should the highway bend
Turning down every chance you're given.
Takes the risk out of life, but friend
How the hell can you call that livin'?
Staying put in a pumpkin shell
Is a bleak and depressing habit.
There's a ring on the carousel
And it's yours if you'll only grab it.

Out there somewhere just down the line.
Lies a world of glory and shine.
One square foot there's gotta be mine.
Once in his life every man decides
Once when he stands where the road divides
Once on a hill as the morning grows
Once if he will he can see those..

Fires glow, flags streaming
Spires grow, towers gleaming

In a land where the dawn is clear
In a sky where the sun's forever.
On a plain where it's spring all year
And the dark of the night is never.

Somewhere out there just out of sight
In that world that's shining with light.
Ain't each man alive got the right?
Once in his life to forget the past.
Once in his life to behold at last.
With his own two eyes what
