This is the second page of Authentic Stories

Work, work and more work. You feel stuck in everyday boredom, all routines and nothing feels fun anymore.

You stop, throw your stack of paper in the office, slam the door behind you, and pull away on the highway.

You put on your sunglasses, crank down the windows, feel the wind in your hair and head south. The engine rumbles. Destination unknown. You feel excited. Let's go!

The song “Leaving My Safe Zone” is about daring to break free from everyday boredom, pack up in the office, lock the door behind you and go on an adventure to an unknown destination and feel elated and free. A real “feel-good” song with strong colors of Nashville-inspired country.

Featured Artist Travis Toy

The song also features tones from Grammy Award winning steel guitarist Travis Toy.

Leaving My Safe Zone

Verse 1:
I'm out of here, I'm checking out
I'm bored to death, I have no doubts
Stuck in the same old routine
Feeling like a mechanical machine

Chorus:
So I'm leaving my safe zone for a while
I've got a tank full of gas and my windows are rolled down

Verse 2:
Where I'm going I just don't know
The sun in my face and the wind in my hair
Feelin' alright going down the interstate
I've got no special place to go, so I won't be late

Chorus:
So I'm leaving my safe zone for a while
I've got full tank of gas and my windows are rolled down
Driving my car mile after mile
I've got a six-pack and shades and a pocket full of cash 

Bridge:
I've been thinking to do this for a long time
But as always a million things got in my way

Chorus:
So I'm leaving my safe zone for a while
I've got full tank of gas and my windows are rolled down
Driving my car mile after mile 
I've got a six-pack and shades and a pocket full of cash

Chorus:
So I'm leaving my safe zone for a while
I've got full tank of gas and my windows are rolled down
Stuck in this place drives me out of my mind  
I've got a six-pack and shades and a pocket full of cash
