tired of living this country life, its time to move up from the south
it seemed to have something for us, but now it's time to hit the bus
60 miles of where its at to finally get things back on track
so cmon boy, just take us home
to the city, that's where we belong

things have changed but still the same, like bars and crowds with different names
24 hour grocery stores where the kids hang out just like before
is this the place that we are sure could be Paris, London of Tokyo
boy it's great to be back home, the city that's where we belong

boy it's great to be back home, the city that's where we belong
the city that's where we belong

we need excitement from a change but that doesn't mean that we will stay
the beginning feels like oh so great, but soon it turns to just okay
see, I've known this place for much too long, I'm always one to be moving on
but still it's great to be back home, the city that's where we belong

    General Commentit reminds me of living out in the suburbs in georgia ..the wal marts, the local bars, the same people in that small town.. and moving to chicago and loving it.. but then kind of making my stay overdue.. and longing to go back home because it will always be home to me.
