Get Out, Stay Out Lyrics

GET OUT, STAY OUT    (BethAnne Clayton, c2018)

Am I imagining, is this happening 
thought that I had finally broke free
Now you’re stirring, recurring 
Why you gotta mess around with me?
You’re not wanted… so why do you invade my space
See I told you before, no, this I will not tolerate

So get out stay out– no you don’t belong with me
Go away now..its pure toxicity 
You’re not welcome to bring all the hell and the pain you intend to give
So get out and stay out so I can live 

We’ve been through this don’t you do this what part of no don’t you understand
You don’t fool me you must know by now I recognize
how the further you push me down the higher you will rise, so

Get out stay out no you don’t belong with me
Go away now..its pure toxicity 
You’re not welcome to bring all the hell and the pain you intend to give
So get out and stay out so I can live

Never again.  This is the end      Bye bye bye

Get out stay out– no you don’t belong with me
Go away’re pure toxicity 
You’re not welcome to bring all the hell and the pain you intend to give
So get out and stay out          and let me live!

Get Out, Stay Out

BethAnne Clayton BUY “Get Out, Stay Out”

So excited to announce my new song “Get Out, Stay Out”.  This is An inspirational and powerful song about HOPE; about the desperate need for a cure for cancer; a song to inspire the removal of all toxic situations, people, substances, anything out to destroy your well being and how we all have the power to say NO!

IMG_7507(1) At this time in my life I am grateful for just about any circumstance that comes my way, as long as I am BREATHING. One more day on this journey is another day I can be in my son’s life; one more lesson I can learn and pass on to him. Battling stage 3 ovarian cancer for a second time and now continuously has certainly given me the opportunity to show him how to fight, how to believe, how to be resilient, how to have hope. I can’t ask for more than that. After my 15 year old son lost his Dad to cancer last year, together we beautifully share the gift of music that we’ve been blessed with, and we use that music to feel and to heal. Throughout all of these difficult trials I use songwriting to express myself and my son supports me through it all, musically by playing and singing by my side, and emotionally by standing by my side; and the music lifts us up. My wish is to inspire everyone to LIVE. To have hope for a cure someday; for our generation, for future generations to come. With that, I am proud to present the Words & Music Company produced video debut of “Get Out, Stay Out”, a song about living not only for ourselves, but for our loved ones; it’s about never giving up, about STANDING UP TO CANCER!


Thanks as always for your support!

Love, BethAnne

Health and other news

airbrush_20180823085152HI all, as you may know I was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer in April of 2016.  After completing a tough regimen of IV and IP chemo, I went clear for 10 months and then something showed on the scan and I had to have more surgery and more chemo.  I have been doing weekly chemotherapy since December of 2017.  I have not been doing as many musical performances as I used to due to fatigue and strength, but I am so happy on that stage that it truly is the BEST medicine! My son, Paul T. Reinhold, is becoming quite the musician and I’m so pleased when he’s on the stage with me. He is truly a gift.

Thank you all for your ongoing support. Please stay tuned for my new music video and for any other important updates!!!

I am so excited for the release of my new song/video “Get Out Stay Out”. Inspired by trials and tribulations over the past year with health and family issues, this powerful song has been a healing project for me and I can’t wait to share it with the world! 

“To Thine Self Be True”

“To Thine Self Be True”

This is for those of you who have ever written to me with sincere words of gratitude for inspiring you.  In return you inspired ME.  And, now, as part of my healing process, I feel compelled to share my thoughts and experiences with you all as I move into “life after cancer”. That phrase could be replaced with anything that pertains to your life after something tragic takes place.  A death of a loved one, a near fatal accident, a divorce, a wake up call if you will.  It’s my wish that anyone not living in complete authenticity may take something away from this.

I always found myself rolling my eyes when I’d hear the young contestants on IDOL or some celebrity spilling out familiar words when asked the broad question “do you have any advice for people out there?” And they’d all say the same thing: “just be true to yourself”.  I mean, could they conjure up any other creative thoughts and somehow not be so lazy? But…who knew…someday I would experience the total meaning of that and would answer the same way. These four words I’ve heard my whole life had forced its way up from the depths of my soul right there in front of my eyes to see and along with it came a lot harder questions to answer than that. Questions like Who the heck am I? Why am I here? What really matters? Do I matter?  Who really loves me? Who doesn’t? What IS love to me? What isn’t? How do I want to spend the rest of my days? The simplest of questions I’d never asked myself because, as I’ve come to realize, I had a fear of answering them with the absolute truth. If I was truthful I might have to face something that could unfathomably be worse than anything I’d already been through. Possibly worse than the 18 chemotherapy treatments that had been delivered straight into my abdomen just 5 months before. This could change who I had known up until now….throw me into unfamiliar territory. But somehow it seemed more frightening to stay in which I knew wasn’t right than to take the risk of finding what is.

It was time. I had no choice. I call it a God thing, but it was as if He spared my body from dying, and was now giving me the chance to spare my mind and my spirit from the same. I “broke open” as Elizabeth Lesser’s incredible and life changing book so perfectly defined. And, so,  I undenyably took the painful plunge to the inner layers of my wounds (we all have them!) and sought answers. The truth about what had transpired from my childhood up until now.  Who contributed what to it and where that landed me. Who had shown me their true colors numerous times and why I allowed it to remain in my life. The truth about my past and present relationships and what really supports who I want to be from here on out. What will lift me up, not bring me down. What makes me smile, not frown. What I want to teach my son through example.  How I want to live. Yes! That was it! I want to live! However, it wasn’t till then that I admitted I had actually been headed in the opposite direction.

I had endless enlightenments, awarenesses, and “ah ha” moments. Every song I sang, sermon I heard, episode of THIS IS US (seriously that show had a huge impact); every interaction with the people directly in my circle had all come together to answer my questions.  It was nonstop. The tears I shed (and there were millions!) were a realization that there were things in my life that were toxic and I needed to clean them out.  I had to address and deal with the matters of the heart just like I did at the oncologist appointments with my disease. No matter how long I had been in this role, it was time to break the pattern. What will stay and what will go in order to survive.

It all revealed itself just the way it needed to to help move toward the authentic me and stay on a healing path. By keeping my eyes, ears, and mind open, the evidence I needed to back up my unhappiness and “icky feelings” was right there. It was there all the time. The struggle between others’ perceptions of me with my own was very real. But so was the clarity now. I was clear about everything. I could see the whys of everyone’s behavior, including my own. I just never trusted me. ….well, I never did before. …….Before cancer.

During my illness I felt amazing love and support I had not known since my mother’s passing 22 years ago.  22 years!  That’s a long time without that kind of love.  A love that just is.  Like the love I have for my son.  I felt uplifted by those who somehow knew my spirit.  That’s what I’ve concluded love should be.  When someone cares enough to know your spirit and who you are deep in your soul and accepts you for it. (And heck, even likes you!). I’ve discovered that the words “I love you” don’t mean a darn thing without action behind it. And that it’s ok to rid (or set proper boundaries with) the ones that, on the contrary, exhibit the opposite of what I believe it should be.

It is a real good question. What do you know about yourself that you aren’t honest about? What’s really hiding behind your Facebook wall? What I know now is my wall is transparent. I’m there for myself to see. I know that the tragic events of having cancer is what brought me to be vulnerable; to believe and trust in myself and I thank God for that hard lesson. I know that as this most trying past year ends it will be the start of a new one.  One that feels free from the toxicity that I let reside in me all these years. I slice my life in half. The old me and the new me. The new me can spot what’s not healthy for me and won’t tolerate it. The new me knows what real love should look like and is ready and willing to share it with those who will reciprocate and embrace it.

“Be true to yourself “. Age old words of wisdom! I’d give that advice to anyone now without hesitation. Life is too precious; too short; too amazing not to!
