"Boston" as written by and Daniel/palomar Layus....
In the light of the sun
Is there anyone?
Oh, it has begun

Oh, dear, you look so lost
Your eyes are red when tears are shed
The world you must have crossed, you said

You don't know me, you don't even care
Oh yeah, you said
You don't know me, and you don't wear my chains
Oh yeah

Essential yet appealed
Carry all your thoughts
Across an open field

When flowers gaze at you
They're not the only ones
Who cry when they see you
You said

You don't know me, and you don't even care
Oh yeah, you said
You don't know me, and you don't wear my chains
Oh yeah

She said, I think I'm going to Boston
I think I'll start a new life
I think I'll start it over
Where no one knows my name

I'll get out of California
I'm tired of the weather
I think I'll get a lover
I'll fly 'em out to Spain

I think I'll go to Boston
I think that I was tired
I think I need a new town
To leave this all behind

I think I need a sunrise
I'm tired of a sunset
Here it's nice in the summer
Some snow would be nice, oh yeah

You don't know me, and you don't even care
Oh yeah

Boston
Where no one knows my name
No one knows my name
No one knows my name

Boston
Where no one knows my name

    General Commentthis song honestly means so much to me i can't even begin to explain. sometimes when i listen to it i feel it was written about my situation because it's so exact.
    the part that really sticks out to me is;

    "I think I need a sunrise
    I'm tired of the sunset"

    i just feel like it's meant in such a deeper way. being tired of the sunset, tired of things ending, tired of relationships and friendships ending, tired of people walking out of my life and just needing a sunrise, needing something new, something that signals that all will be okay because there's a new day ahead and new things to come.

    General CommentThis songs about leaving everything behind and I think there's a time in every persons life where this couldn't be truer and you want to just get up and leave everything.

    General CommentOutstanding song.. it really seems to speak volumes to me. I particularly like the line "you don't wear my chains".. it really shows how some people don't know your point of view.. oh well, i'm rambling :) i love the song. the end.

    WOW. i love this song! sometimes when i get bored i get on itunes and i just look for new music and when i found this i knew it was something special. i have been listening to it for months and months now and it has yet to grow old. infact me and my ipod are listening to it right now. i just love how it starts out slow and then gets really powerful...just a PERFECT song!

    General CommentThis is a great song. I heard it on the local college radio station (the only one in town that doesn't play corporate mindsludge 24/7). At one time I didn't like how things were going so I went to a new place to start over. Turned out most of the problem was myself, and running away didn't really change anything, but I learned something nonetheless.
