Lyrics: Dexter Freebish

This is one of my all time favorite songs. I was my “going to college” song and sums up my journey (minus a few lines)…

THROWBACK!!!

Leaving Town by Dexter Freebish:

Oh your reputation’s so golden You’re never lonely and you’re never home
I know you’ve been talking about leaving You’ve lost all your feeling for this town
Paint your nails and put on your lipstick You don’t want to miss your ticket out
Just because you graduate from school so high in the gene pool, that’s your point of view
but when you’re broken down and no one else is around
you’ll come running back to this town and I’ll be there, yeah I’ll be there

’cause I remember how we drank time together
and how you used to say that the stars are forever
and daydreamed about how to make your life better
by leaving town, leaving town

Pack your bags, your smokes in your pocket You’re wearing my locket around your neck
Take a drag and wait for the Greyhound The world is your playground and you want to win
but when you’re broken down and no one else is around
you’ll come running back to this town and I’ll be there, yeah I’ll be there

’cause I remember how we drank time together
and how you used to say that the stars are forever
and daydreamed about how to make your life better
by leaving town, leaving town

Nothing in life will ever come that easy
Doesn’t mean it has to be that hard
I know you will find out who you are…

but when you’re broken down and no one else is around
you’ll come running back to this town and I’ll be there, yeah I’ll be there

’cause I remember how we drank time together
and how you used to say that the stars are forever
and daydreamed about how to make your life better
by leaving town, leaving town
