It's..... The happiest blog on earth
I love The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. And I'm fascinated by this song from its soundtrack. Its title is "Step Out," but the lyrics are a little darker. I could've sworn they were singing "House on fire. Leave it all behind you..."
So I launched a quest to learn what the real lyrics are...
Step outside. Won't you step outside. Better step out...
Step outside. Take a step outside. Better step outside. Time to step outside...
Staying through every heart stub, every move.
Breathing half the time...
Oh-oh-oh, oh oh. Oh, oh, oh. Oh-oh-oh, oh oh...Broke to
Something's not the same.
Crossed eyes sweep the floor.
in your absence.
Shut the door.
Oh-oh-oh, oh oh. Oh, oh, oh. Oh-oh-oh, oh oh.
Just believe and...
Step outside. Take a step outside. Better step outside. Time to step outside.

Another site suggests that they're actually singing "feeding at the tides"...
And one site actually transcribed the lyrics as "Broke tooth one day. Something's not the same..."
