about

A re-release of a track I put out last summer, with some things smoothed out.

This is a song about what happens when you take a small-town boy out of his small town. Enjoy. x

lyrics

You're right where you want to be
There's nothing you say you need
But did you ever stop to think
There may be something you're missing
Hedges and a picket fence
A family with plenty of common sense
But did you ever think maybe
This isn't where the road ends

There's more beyond one little town
There's a way to turn yourself around

Go on, get the keys - drive
Till I say when to stop
See the city lights
Bet they're nothing like you thought
You may be picture perfect, babe,
But this is what you haven't got

You say you don't want to choose
There's so much that it frightens you
Well honey, trust me when I say
There's nothing this compares to
Wind mussing up your hair
You look better that way, a little less scared
I know this isn't what you're used to
But it suits you
I can't help but stare

You're holding back - just fall free
I know there's someone else you can be

Go on, get the keys - drive
Until we hit the coast
See the beach at night
The stars I love the most
You may be picture perfect, babe,
But there are things you don't know

Can't go back
Now that we're on this track
We've left all you knew behind
So let me see you shine

Go on, get the keys - drive
And we don't have to stop
Got the sun in our eyes
But look at the view we've got
Well, now you're picture perfect, babe
And this is worth a snapshot

Well, now you're picture perfect, babe
And this is worth a snapshot

You're right where you want to be
There's nothing you say you need
