about

An early version of one of my most requested originals.

lyrics

Lost in the half-light
Flying from lamppost to luminary
Paralyzed by stage fright
Some time ago, the future got scary
Stuck in permanent hibernation
‘Til you could assimilate the information

Step outside the lines and
Let your eyes adjust to the light of day
Step outside the lines and
Let your eyes adjust to the light of day
There is no other way

Bound behind bricks and
Broken stones, a poor excuse for a home
Leaving the longing locked up in
Another room while you roam
And the ones who know you, they don’t know at all
Draw the blinds, cover your ears when you hear the call

Well, open up the window
Let your eyes adjust to the light of day
Open up the window
Let your eyes adjust to the light of day
There is no other way

Open my eyes, let me see
The beauty set before me
Open my eyes, let me see
All of this reality

Step outside the lines and
Let your eyes adjust to the light of day
Open up the window...
Let some light in...
