lyrics

Came down from the hills
North by northwest
Green around the gills
And easy to impress

The urge of youth
Pruned the family tree
Roots of generations
Weren't stopping me

Headed for the coast
Desperate for a change
But the city's full of shadows
And everyone's estranged

Crowds of people
You'll never meet
Flowing by
Staring at their feet

Chorus:
Try to push it down
But it's worse all the time
Stuck in the city
With the country on my mind

The city doesn't sleep
And neither do I
Doing all I can
And barely scraping by

Locked in a cycle
I can't seem to break
A dozen cups of coffee
Hardly keeps me awake

Chorus

Put in twenty years
Saving every dime
Counted every breath
Just to pass the time

All this time away
Searching for a home
Only to double back
To where I came from

Chorus

Chorus
