Meeting The World Outside

from Diversion E​.​P. by McDougall

lyrics

I took off running to clear my head
All out of breath, stop thinking that I'm dead
Out of the rocking chair, not far from home
It's time to wander again, it's time to roam

Sometimes I'd open the door, then sit and stare
Trapped by depression, "man, it sure looks nice out there"
But now I'm walking, catching my breath
Ready to run again, 'til I've got nothing left

This is not how it's going to end
Here we are and here we go, my friend
This is not how it's going to end
This is not how it's going to end

I want to let go and feel those Lasting Arms
Pulling me closer, away from all alarms
I keep on stumbling, watching the clock
Forgetting all about the door that opens when I knock

Thankful I'm off the hook, safe to confide
No longer just to look, but ready for the ride
Now back to letting go, now to stop wasting time
No longer forced to live like the one whose done the crime

This is not how it's going to end
Here we are and here we go, my friend
This is not how it's going to end
This is not how it's going to end
