Lyrics

Come Out

Written By: Mark S. Meritt

Verse 1:

Empty
That's how I'd always feel
My life
Didn't even seem real
I just couldn't get all the things I needed
I thought I was defeated

Prison
That's what I felt inside
Afraid
Part of me might have died
But then someone brought me a brand new story
Here's what that someone told me

Chorus 1:

Come out!
Come out of your shell
Or all you get and all you give, you'll be living in hell
Come out!
Come out of your hole
Or any tale you might be telling, you'll be selling your soul
If you want a lot, just forget what you're not
If you're gonna go far, you've gotta be who you are
Shout it, flout it, spout it, tout it
'Til there's not a drop of doubt
About
Come out!

Verse 2:

So I
Took my mind off the bad
And looked
At what I really had
Though it wasn't much, still, it was beginning
I slowly started winning

Take two
Now, I am what I am
My life
Not someone else's sham
For better or worse, I do what works for me
And you'll, too, if you'll only

Chorus 2:

Come out!
Come out of your shell
Or all you get and all you give, you'll be living in hell
Come out!
Come out of your hole
Or any tale you might be telling, you'll be selling your soul
If you want a lot, just forget what you're not
If you're gonna go far, you've gotta be who you are
Shout it, flout it, spout it, tout it
'Til there's not a drop of doubt
About
Come out!

Bridge:

You wanna live your life? [Yeah!]
Well, you just can't do it
If it's not you doing the livin'
[You wanna] love someone [Yeah!]
But you just can't do it
If it's not you doing the lovin'
[You wanna] change the world? [Yeah!]
Well, there's nothin' to it
Long as it's you doin' the changin'
[You wanna] speak your mind
But if you can't say, "My mind is mine"
Then what's the use of talkin' at all?

Break:

Come out, come out, whoever you are
Come out, come out, whoever you are
Come out, come out, whoever you are
Come out, come out, whoever you are

Verse 3:

Stand up
Be yourself, feel alive
You'll do
So much more than survive
Just like love and shelter and food and air
It's something that we all share

Homo
sapiens all the world 'round
Were lost
Now we all can be found
It all can come out in the end, you'll see
If everyone will only

Chorus 3:

Come out!
Come out of your closet
If you don't, you won't earn a return on your deposit
Come out!
Come out of your cage
Or all you loathe and all you love, you'll feel nothing but rage

Come out!
Come out of your shell
Or all you get and all you give, you'll be living in hell
Come out!
Come out of your hole
Or any tale you might be telling, you'll be selling your soul
If you want a lot, just forget what you're not
To get what you need, be yourself in deed
Shout it, flout it, spout it, tout it
'Til there's not a drop of doubt
About
Come out!

Outro:

You wanna get things done
You wanna have some fun
You wanna feel so free
You wanna let it be

You wanna find your path
You wanna have a laugh
You wanna see the sights
You wanna reach new heights

You wanna do your best
You wanna get some rest
You wanna leave your mark
You wanna bite and bark

You wanna be so kind
You wanna ease your mind
You wanna make a friend
You wanna reach the end

You wanna have a thrill
You wanna make a kill
You wanna feel some pride
You wanna get inside

You wanna satisfy
You wanna live and die
You wanna raise the youth
You wanna know the truth
