Somewhere Out There
Our Lady Peace Lyrics


Last time I talked to you
You were lonely and out of place
You were looking down on me
Lost out in space

We laid underneath the stars
Strung out and feeling brave
I watched the red orange glow
I watched you float away

Down here in the atmosphere
Garbage and city lights
You've gone to save your tired soul
You've gone to save their lives

I turned on the radio
To find you on satellite
I'm waiting for this sky to fall
I'm waiting for a sign

All we are
Is all so far

You're falling back to me
You're a star that I can see, yeah
I know you're out there
Somewhere out there
You're falling out of reach
Defying gravity, yeah
I know you're out there
Somewhere out there

Hope you remember me
When you're home sick and need a change
I miss your purple hair
I miss the way you taste

I know you'll come back someday
On a bed of nails, I'll wait
I'm praying that you don't burn out
Or fade away

All we are
Is all so far

You're falling back to me
You're a star that I can see, yeah
I know you're out there
Somewhere out there
You're falling out of reach
Defying gravity, yeah
I know you're out there
Somewhere out there

You're falling back to me
You're a star that I can see, yeah
I know you're out there
Somewhere out there
You're falling out of reach
Defying gravity, yeah
I know you're out there
Somewhere out there

You're falling back to me
You're a star that I can see, yeah
I know you're out there
Somewhere out there
You're falling out of reach
Defying gravity, yeah
I know you're out there
Somewhere out there

I know
I know
You're falling out of reach
I know

"Somewhere Out There"

Last time I talked to you
You were lonely and out of place
You were looking down on me
Lost out in space
We laid underneath the stars
Strung out and feeling brave
I watched the red orange glow
I watched you float away
Down here in the atmosphere
Garbage and city lights
You've gone to save your tired soul
You've gone to save our lives
I turned on the radio
To find you on satellite
I’m waiting for this sky to fall
I’m waiting for a sign
All we are
Is all so far

You're falling back to me
You're a star that I can see
I know you're out there
Somewhere out there
You're falling out of reach
Defying gravity
I know you're out there
Somewhere out there
Hope you remember me
When you're home sick
and need a change
I miss your purple hair
I miss the way you taste
I know you'll come back someday
On a bed of nails I’ll wait
I’m praying that you don’t burn out
Or fade away
All we are
Is all so far

You're falling back to me
You're a star that I can see
I know you're out there
Somewhere out there
You're falling out of reach
Defying gravity
I know you're out there
Somewhere out there
You're falling back to me
You're a star that I can see
I know you're out there
You're falling out of reach
Defying gravity
I know you're out there
Somewhere out there
You're falling back to me
You're a star that I can see
I know you're out there
Somewhere out there
You're falling out of reach
Defying gravity
I know you're out there
Somewhere out there
You're falling back to me
I know
I know
You're falling out of reach
I know

@VBZ I hear ya man. Become the man you would choose if you were the type of woman you wish to share your life with.
I hit the depths of despair years ago. I was ready to end it. I spent 8 years on anti-depressants which destroyed my ability to get motivated about anything. I was a 36 year old virgin. Pathetic in every measurable way.
I realized the freedom of rock bottom is that if you have nothing left to lose, you have no reason to accept that you must lose.
Ironically, this is kind of the end game for the "Canadian Youth" perspective. I lived this as a young adult, feeling like life would just happen if I just treated everyone fairly and had a decent job and worked hard.
Bullshit.
Just like in another OLP song, "ordinary just ain't good enough today".
So stop settling for being ordinary.
So I realized that the real message I should have taken is that just being another cog in the wheel is the path to despair. It's time to be more than ordinary. I found a gym. I worked my ass off for 5 years straight. I had a lot of setbacks, but I pushed through them and just kept going. I went from looking like a blonde potato to looking like a Norwegian Powerlifter (not my words). Yeah, I'm still a bit chubby, but I can live with that. I look anything but ordinary though. People literally stop and say things to me like "holy shit man, you look like you could fight a dozen men". I am working towards my blue belt in BJJ, but I don't think I actually could fight a dozen men ;). I do kind of look like it though.
On the mats, people are afraid of me even just in sparring (although I am also nicknamed the gentle giant because I like to be gentle... and I am still Canadian). I am currently tied for the Canadian National Record for Deadlift in my age and weight category (conventional, raw). Instead of walking around feeling weak and lonely and pathetic, I now get respect simply for entering a room.
This is not by any special mightiness that I have that is unique to me. My fighting skills are below average (my opinion) and my powerlifting numbers are not that much higher than the numbers that Mark Rippetoe says are achievable by pretty much any man. Due to my age, I will probably never be able to get much more in numbers. I had health problems that made my progress in lifting slower than the average. Rather than this being a diatribe about how awesome I am, this is a description only of the journey to reach 100% of my own personal maximum potential. I am not there yet and I hope I can continue always striving for that 100%, but anyone can make that choice. Anyone can. Few actually do.
If I can do it, you can do it.
And if you do, you won't need to worry about finding a woman to settle down with. Instead of hoping for some vague "someone", you will have options and choice.
Stop settling for being ordinary. It's not good enough, and it shouldn't be. Become the best version of yourself. That is the path of no regrets.
