I found a letter in the mailbox today
It said thank you for your thoughts but I'm done
You said that I would never build this up right here
And I said that's why I can't work with you son

Well I can't let this go I'm on my way
But you can only hold my diamond ring
Well I go crawling back to the woman I love
She's already taken everything

Im goin' to Coney Island and have myself a dog
Reminisce why I still hate it here
It's all these people with their cotton candy eyes
It's so sweet now put your train in gear

Well I can't let this go I'm on my way
But you can only hold my diamond ring
Well I go crawling back to the woman I love
She's already taken everything

The ground is swallowing my options for release
And if it rains we might just disappear
I counted oh so many friends up there today
I'm thinking that's why I still love it here
I'm thinking that's why I still love it here

Well I can't let this go I'm on my way
But you can only hold my diamond ring
Well I go crawling back to the city I love
Because its already taken everything

Well I can't let this go I'm on my way
Because you can only hold my diamond ring
Well I go crawling back to the woman I love
She's already taken everything

    General CommentNot sure what Anthony Green was going for on this one, especially as its a cover, but what I get from it is maybe being weary of being on the road and wanting so much to be at home. And then trying to find why home feels like home once you are there? I don't know, its an amazing acoustic song. If your looking for it he performed it for an acoustic session with Alternative Press.
