There once was this kid that was down on his luck
stuck in a town that just didnt give a ****
kept waiting and wishing
and starting and stopping
he just barlely heard
an old man start talking
said son while your here
relax
be enchanted
by all of these things
youve been taking for granted

we've got beaches and bridges and
all of the things we need
right here and you dont even seem to notice
why would you ever want to leave

the boy stared around
for some imperfection
all that he saw was his
confused reflection
he thought to himself
what was i thinking
this town has so much
besides smoking and drinking

its got beaches and bridges and
all of the things id need
right here and i never even noticed
why did i ever want to leave

so he took his seat
looked down at his feet
ashamed of his lack of
love for these streets
but he never forgot
what he learned that summer
negativity erased
and replaced by new wonder
he walked around town as he hummed in his head
and thought about what that old man had once said

we've got beaches and bridges and
all of the things we need
right here and you dont even seem to notice
why would you ever want to leave...

Take a look at S&L Rules at the top of the forum. Check posting limits and the proper way to title it.
