I'm coming out
I'm coming
I'm coming out
I'm coming out

I'm coming out
I'm coming out

I'm coming out
I want the world to know
Got to let it show
I'm coming out
I want the world to know
Got to let it show

There's a new me coming out
And I just have to live
And I want to give
I'm completely positive
I think this time around
I am gonna do it
Like you never knew it
Oh, I'll make it through

The time has come for me
To break out of the shell
I have to shout
That I am coming out

I'm coming out
I want the world to know
I got to let it show
I'm coming out
I want the world to know
I got to let it show
I'm coming out (coming)
I want the world to know (out)
Got to let it show (I'm coming
I'm coming out (coming)
I want the world to know (out)
Got to let it show

I've got to show the world
All that I want to be
And all my abilities
There's so much more to me
Somehow, I'll have to make them
Just understand
I got it well in hand
And, oh, how I've planned
I'm spreadin' love
There is no need to fear
And I just feel so good
Every time I hear

I'm coming out
I want the world to know
I got to let it show
I'm coming out (coming)
I want the world to know (out)
Got to let it show (I'm coming)
I'm coming out (coming)
I want the world to know (out)
Got to let it show
I'm coming out
I want the world to know
Got to let it show

I'm coming out
I want the world to know
Got to let it show (want the world to know)
(I got to let it show)
I'm coming out
I want the world to know
Got to let it show

I'm coming out (I'm coming)
I want the world to know (out)
Got to let it show
(I want the world to know, gotta let it show)
I'm coming out (I'm, I'm, I'm)
I want the world to know (I'm coming out)
Got to let it show (watch out, I'm coming out)
I'm coming out
I want the world to know
I got to let it show
I'm coming out (coming, coming out)
I want the world to know
Got to let it show (want the world to know)
(Got to let it show)

I'm, I'm coming out
I have to shout that I'm comin' out
I want the world to know, I gotta let it show
I'm coming, I'm coming out

    General Commenti think it could be argued that this is about being gay, not saying it cant be either. This song came out 1980, the period after the 1970s disco gave representation to both gay and lesbian communities. The 60s and 70s american society under went a irrevocable reconfiguration of identity with the sexual self central to this shift and that carried on into the 80s.
