The city where I live
The faces in the crowd
It all just makes me stop to think
This is what I've found

Everyone knows everyone
Everyone knows what everyone does
It's cloudy now but that's OK
Sitting around here all day

See I've got this friend
Who just complains about getting out
Said I'm gonna sell my stuff and quit my band
And move out east or anyhow

Cuz everyone knows everyone
Everyone knows what everyone does
It's rainy now and I can't wait
To get out of here someday

There's no escaping
There's nothing to escape
For no good reason
I think I'm gonna stay

Cuz everyone knows everyone
Everyone knows what everyone does
It's sunny out and that's OK
Running around here all day

    General CommentHe probably longs to see what is outside of Oregon, but is content with ties he has to state. He wants to spread his wings, but always thinks, "why? I'm happy where I'm at, but it'd be nice to look day..."

    General CommentI live in Portland, and I think he wrote it because all though Portland is a large city, it's still small enough in that you see familiar faces almost daily.
