Written as the theme song for the 2011 Vancouver Outgames, encouraging and inspiring people to actively participate in the games, The Human Rights Conference and in their own lives.


It's so easy to say "no I'll just stay home thanks anyway"
It sounds like fun I'll catch the next one maybe if I've had a better day
You could be connecting instead of dissecting
Why you're life’s not like a magazine
Can you imagine how it would rock
if you said yes to everything
Come on Out
Come on Out and Play
Come on Out
Get yourself in the game
You're better than you think
You're stronger than you know
Time to stretch those wings
You gotta go
Come on out
Come on out and play
Nothing grows in a comfort zone Chances are only blown when not taken
Let others rack up TV time while you start the climb for magical ground breakin'
When that voice says you can't do it
Say “Back off, you’re blocking my light”
You can have what you want
You can love whom you please
It’s your human right
Take up more space
Claim your place
Bite the stage fright
When you shine
You're the power line
Face the burn, get in your life

You were already threatening to put up the tree

and it' wasn't even Halloween

You snuck some garland on the window pane

Your pretty wrapped gifts hide and wait

Now I see you eyeing those lights and printing recipes for gingerbread

making predictions of snow and walks along the riverbed

I shake my head how did it come to this

My perfect life

with my perfect wife and

My perfect Christmas


After years without love how could I have guessed

I'd be slow dancing with an angel on my chest

When you come your light fills this place

I got daily reasons to celebrate

Pull out our cheesy snowman pjs and those slippers with the bells

I love this time every year when we fall under this spell

When you start playing Amy Grant I know what's coming next

My perfect Life

with My perfect Wife

and my perfect Christmas


You've asked me twice for my wish list and I don't know what to write

I have all I need looking at me bathed in candlelight

You won't give up til I fill this page so I'll read you what it says

Santa keep me in this Perfect life

with my perfect wife

and my perfect Christmas
