The desire for a life change, and the strange resistance we can feel to doing things that ultimately make us feel much better. The tough task of transcendence described in a humorous and catchy rock tune with a country twang. Longing to change your st

Story Behind the Song

A friend who dreams of being a writer, who is miserable in his job and lonely in his private life, who lives and breathes books and has lots of ideas for novels - but never takes the step to start writing.

Lyrics

I work 'til five and feel my life dissipate
Get stuck in traffic and I'm home by eight
My apartment looks too plain
The records I own all sound the same

So I took my bike out to the beach at six am
Watching the waves in a moment of zen
If it makes me feel this way
Then why don't I do it everyday

I know a lot of ways to set me free
To walk the walk and stop the talk, it's plain to see
To try something new
With no promises or guarantees
It's simple... but it's not easy

When I was a little girl, I knew the life for me
Singing and traveling was my greatest dream
And it never went away
Am I crazy to think I could do it someday

I know a lot of ways to set me free
To walk the walk and stop the talk, it's plain to see
To try something new
With no promises or guarantees
It's simple... but it's not easy

Wish I wasn't so afraid
What if I tried to live my life
In a different way
Would everybody find me vain
Would everyone I love
Walk away

I take my boredom and my misery out on you
My rational logic says it isn't right to do
Staying where I am - a sure way to cause a split
But loving me a little more makes me love the one I'm with

I know a lot of ways to set me free
To walk the walk and stop the talk, it's plain to see
To try something new
With no promises or guarantees
It's simple... but it's not easy

Yes, it's simple... it's simple but not easy
Oh, it's simple... but it's not easy
