leaving town lyrics – dexter freebish

oh your reputation is so golden
you’re never lonely and you’re never home
i know you’ve been talking about leaving
you’ve lost all your feelings for this town.
paint your nails and put 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 broke and 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 broke and 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 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 broke and 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.
yeah 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.
you’re leaving town, yeah
