I leave for Malaysia in less than 2 hours. So I thought this song might be a perfect song for the moment. In fact, it’s a song best played for anyone who lives far away from the place they grew up in or just want to get the hell away from where they hav been all their lives.
Oh, your reputations so golden.
You’re never lonely and you’re never home.
I know you’ve been talking ’bout leaving.
You’ve lost all your feelings 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,
thats 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 day dreamed 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 oughta win.
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.
That being said, I think I better go look around for souveniers around this place. I think I saw another penguin soft toy somewhere. I can’t possibly leave it all alone now can I?
