I’m looking out for some new city where I can go
If they speak a different language, I’m sure I’ll pick it up
Make a couple friends, people you don’t know
I’ll have a different life there, separate and protected

I didn’t mean to be so closed off, to close you out
Ok it was on purpose, I wasn’t ready then
But I am ready now, I’m coming around
I hope we can talk more, it feels like we never met

It’s like a different version of small town life
But it’s just in this building and you don’t go out
Because it makes you nervous
So you change the way you walk
As you pass that crowd of kids
Who don’t know why they shout
