I’m Outta Here… A Song of 
Freedom and Following Your Own Path

Release Date: July 21st, 2023

If you’ve ever worked at a job where you can’t wait to leave it for whatever reason, this song is for you.  Maybe you are planning your next career move and are just waiting for the day when you can tell your boss “I’m Outta Here”? I used to LOVE my job. I remember thinking some days that I couldn’t believe I was getting paid so well to do what I loved.  Sure, there were stressors but overall, I was creating systems that helped people.  I worked on many great projects and to this day still have such pride in what I helped create and how I helped people.  

This song is the story of one of the few managers I had in all of my years of working where I couldn’t wait for the day I could leave. I moved to a smaller apartment and started saving my money so I could quit my job and do music full time. Telling her “I’m Outta Here” felt so great and 10 years later still does! I hope she hears this song on the radio somehow and realizes that she did me a favour. Without her being the way she was, I would have never felt the need to leave, and look at me now 10 years later! I traded in my high heels and  business suit for a guitar and cowboy boots and haven’t looked back!

Song Lyrics

Francine Honey (SOCAN)/SongsByFrancine

1. I looked in the mirror, didn’t recognize
My downturned mouth, weathered skin, circles around my eyes
I worked again till midnight, emailed at six am
Just 12 more years of daily grind then my pension will begin


I’m outta here, I’m outta here
And never coming back
Won’t take no more, Gonna slam the door
On a guaranteed heart attack
I’m outta here, I’m outta here and I won’t be back


2. When I got to the office, my boss was at my door
Forget what I had planned today, gave me her list and more
The pressure started building, my fists they turned to blue
I couldn’t take it anymore so I told her I was through

Repeat Chorus

Burnout and depression, Are all I can expect
A slave of retirement, with golden chains around my neck

Repeat Chorus

I’m outta here, I’m outta here, And never coming back
Won’t take no more, Gonna slam the door,
On a guaranteed heart attack
I’m outta here, I’m outta here And I won’t be back
