Wind blowin through my hair
Everybody tellin me there's nowhere like home
Oh no

There's somewhere else for me
I need to take the oppurtunity and go
And go
Yeah

Its now near, not too far
And when i look up to the stars
I wanna be, i wanna be like they are
Ooh

[chorus]
Sometimes you gotta get of kansas (gotta get out)
And sometimes you gotta take your chances (to find the answers)
'cause noone ever made it just waitin around
For the big fancy menice in the two-bit town
One thing i know is crystal clear
I gotta get out of here

I know the sound of a whole new crowd
While i wisper when i want to sing out loud
Let me here you say yeah yeah (yeah, yeah)
Im on land, but i can fly
Something in my heart saying i was ment to shine
Like a diamond in the sky

I wanna see my name in lights
And someone to buy movie rights
I wanna hear my music come to life

[chorus]
Sometimes you gotta get of kansas (gotta get out)
Aand sometimes you gotta take your chances (to find the answers)
'cause noone ever made it just waitin around
For the big fancy menice in the two-bit town
One thing i know is crystal clear
I gotta get out of here

I gotta get outta here
Mmhmm
I gotta get outta here

    I luv this song. This is exactly how I feel. I have to get out of my small life in my small town, and make something of myself, follow my dreams, and become a singer.
