At one time a great place to grow up
To live, learn and develop
But soon you reach capacity
when your hometown is left with only one thing… monotony

In this beautiful city, this charming town
This beautiful city, I can't wait to get out

Some people say "some things never change,"
And in this town it's true
It's got its transplants, its regulars
And those too afraid to move
Sometimes I feel like I'm one of them
Always ending up downtown
Never seeming to do a whole lot in life
Never seeming to figure it out

In this beautiful city, this charming town
This beautiful city, I can't wait to get out

The skyline is etched by the sunlight cast
While each steeple will seem perfect, but each no better than the last

So we can sit and say that it will change
And we'll move on to better things
But nothing ever advances
When you cast your fate to the wind

In this beautiful city, this charming town
This beautiful city, I can't wait to get out
