“In the Other Room” – by Kent Mayhew (1999)

Think there’s a hero living inside of me
That they locked away in a closet long ago
So that no one would see
‘Cause he gets out of line
And what a disgrace that would be
There are times when I wish I had the key

Bet there are times when you feel the same way too
So many places you’d love to go and see
And things you’d love to do
But they tell you that you’re crazy
There’s too much to risk if you were to lose
But I believe there’s a hero living in you too

Chorus:
So if I’m out on a wind across the ocean
Or got my eyes on new horizons to see what I can be
Tell them I’m out of line and I’m crazy
But that’s a door I’m going through
I’ll be back
I’m just in the other room
Tell them I’ll be back
I’m just in the other room

Well maybe I was a hero in a different life
Maybe had myself some children and I was good to my wife
But they tell me that’s out of style now
And maybe they’re right
But I’d been a hero in a different life

You know fate has a way of breaking a heart
Sometimes two people can love each other
But they’re both at their best when they’re apart
But soon enough we find ourselves starting
Right back where we left off
It’s just that fate has a way of breaking a heart

Chorus:
So if I’m out on a river to the ocean
Or got my eyes on new horizons to see what I can be
Tell them I’m out of line and I’m crazy
But that’s a door I’m going through
I’ll be back
I’m just in the other room
Tell them I’ll be back
I’m just in the other room
