Official video for "The Great Escape" by Patrick Watson from the album Close to Paradise (2006, Secret City Records).

[lyrics]
Bad day, looking for a way home,
looking for the great escape.
Gets in his car and drives away,
far from all the things that we are.
Puts on a smile and breathes it in
and breathes it out, he says,
bye bye bye to all of the noise.
Oh, he says, bye bye bye to all of the noise.

Doo doo doo doo doo noo noo
Doo doo doo doo doo noo noo noo noo
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo doo doo doo noo noo noo

Hey child, things are looking down.
That's okay, you don't need to win anyways.
Don't be afraid, just eat up all the gray
and it will fade all away.
Don't let yourself fall down.

Doo doo doo doo doo noo noo
Doo doo doo doo doo noo noo noo noo
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo doo doo doo noo noo noo

Bad day, looking for the great escape.
He says, bad day, looking for the great escape.
On a bad day, looking for the great escape,
the great escape.

You know what.. I believe people with real issues will understand when I say this song should be listened to when, literally, having a bad day. Grab your headphones, close your blinds, and just run this on repeat. The beauty of it helps. It really does.

“It’s okay you don’t need to win anyways” is one of the greatest lyrics penned in our lifetime. That is some deep, DEEP metaphysical truth and a harsh but important lesson in everyone’s life.

Whenever I catch myself crawling back to this song I know I've hit my lowest again. It is beautiful, but painful to listen to for me.

I discovered this song in 2008 at a perfect time cause I was holding a knife against my chest and then this song popped up randomly on YouTube, I listened to it broke down and then I replayed it a bunch and now I’m here. You are a freaking hero Patrick! Thanks for the beautiful song!

This song really gave me perspective on coming back from depression. "Don't be afraid just eat up all the grey and it will fade away." I was looking for something to bring me back to how I once was, a way out. Yet there is no great great escape, there is no such thing. At least not in the way you might think. The great escape is a long process, not breif. It could be as simple as putting a smile on your face everyday and appreciating all the things you have

When I was 15, I dealt with an eating disorder and depression. Every time I tried to calm down, I put this song, resting in my bed or walking to school. Not only did it eased me, but it gave me hope and joy. I could actually visualize a future where i was better and, most important, happy. This song was my great escape and it will forever have a special place in my heart.

I think "the great escape" is a metaphor for a way out of his struggle with sadness in life

There are a few singers/musicians in this world that have this one of a million touch in their voices that just melts you from the inside, and yes Patrick Watson is one of them.
