"Chicago" as written by and Kate Elizabeth Voegele....
I've never known you
But I'm no stranger to this feeling
I I know it's over but the hurts not
What do you call it?
What do you call it when broken hearts are not done healing
You threw down your cigarette but it's still hot
Well I've learned to lie
And here's what I've got

[Chorus:]
Well didn't I think you would always love me
And didn't I want you to take care of me baby
Well that ain't happenin'
No no no
Wouldn't I love just to rise above this
You gotta believe
I have suffered enough to be free
So I'm officially leavin'
With just a kiss on the cheek and
I'm gone.
I'll be up at 7 o'clock
whoa oh oh whoa oh oh
7 o'clock to Chicago
Whoa oh whoa oh

It's never easy
Breakin' this old addiction
I I've got the reasons
But no rational
And I wanna hate you cause you don't give me no conviction
Your betrayal oughta make this break down no trouble at all
So let the rubble fall
Cause I'm running off

[Chorus:]
Well didn't I think you would always love me
And didn't I want you to take care of me baby
Well that ain't happenin'
No no no
Wouldn't I love just to rise above this
You gotta believe
I have suffered enough to be free
So I'm officially leavin'
With just a kiss on the cheek and
I'm gone.
I'll be up at 7 o'clock
whoa oh oh whoa oh oh
7 o'clock to Chicago
Whoa oh whoa oh

I'll be on the 7 o'clock to Chicago
I ain't got no second thoughts
Because I know I'm on my way to the top
On my way

[Chorus:]
Well didn't I think you would always love me
And didn't I want you to take care of me baby
Well that ain't happening
[No No Now]
Wouldn't I love just to rise above this
You've gotta believe I've suffered enough to be free
So I'm officially leaving
Just a kiss on the cheek and I'm gone
I'll be on the seven o'clock
Oh Oh the seven o'clock to Chicago
Oh Oh

    General CommentThis song is one of Kate's best. I Think it's kind of like Marie Digby's Beauty in Walking Away. They both say, "You know what? I'm through here. Bye people's, I'm going tto go start my own life even if it's not perfect." Although they are both leaving for different reasons (Kate is leaving because she's sick of this dude and she has to get away so she won't fall back in love with him; Marie is leaving because she needs to start her own life and leave everything else behind)they are both beautiful.
