I used to look for you out in the daylight,
I took highways, and side streets, and back lanes,
Slept under open skies.
Life can be cruel,
Life can be sweet, if I want it to be.
This town that I once called home,
I just can't hold on to.
It's got strip malls, and bus stops, and people
I would never even talk to.
She said life can be sweet,
But life is so cruel, 'cause I let it be.
Everybody out here,
They wanna live somewhere else.
I wish I could find a place,
And stay there by myself.
Bit by bit I swear I think I'm losing,
All this city's confidence.
I swear I've lost all this city's confidence.
