lyrics

I’m not a city boy
I’ve never lived on a seventh floor
So used to the comfort of my room

Never been on a subway before
Don’t have it at the Jersey Shore
I’ve got to get out of here real soon

I don’t want anyone to think that I’m a baby
But this place is surely driving me crazy
Everything is so cruel, just like back in high school
And I can’t figure out how to leave

Another cab goes by
They never stop, I don’t know why
Nobody even knows I’m here

I can’t stand here in the rain
So I think I’ll take the train
This is going to be one awful year

I don’t want anyone to think that I’m complaining
I try to get used to things but I just keep on straining
Everything is so cruel, just like back in high school
And I can’t figure out…

They keep telling me I won’t make it
I feel like giving up the more they say it
I just keep on hoping that they’re wrong
I want to be big again
Just like I was around my friends
I was such a superstar back home

I don’t want anyone to think that I’m a baby
But this place is surely driving me crazy
Everything is so cruel, just like back in high school
And I can’t figure out how to leave
