When your heart is out of love
And you're feeling left behind
Seems the fates aren't on your side
And the fog has left you blind
When the pressure's pulling different ways
Finds you longing for some empty days
I stop for some breathing space
I pause in the public place
Take time from all the time it takes
To make up for all the big mistakes
I gotta get out
I gotta get out
When your life runs out of steam
And you need a little time
If your muse is out of luck
You might need an extra rhyme
When your heart escapes your head down waits
In the growing queue that life creates
I stop for some breathing space
Divert from the public place

Return to a private place
I know it's there just in case
I gotta get out
I gotta get out
Far far away
I'm goin'
Far far away
I gotta get out (Oh-oh oh oh oh)
I gotta get out (Oh-oh oh oo oo)
There's a place beyond this world
Where the mountains meet the sky
It's a different state of mind
Like a dream where you can fly
Can I tell you this in confidence?
I need to regain that old innocence
I stop for some breathing space
Divert from the public place
Return to a private place
I know it's there just in case
I gotta get out
I gotta get out
