It's getting harder to sleep
When it's eighty-five degrees in the middle of the winter
I'm stuck inside this box
Dead end job
Am I happy here?
It's getting harder to live in a college town
When you're getting older
Every time that I go out, people turn twenty-one

Man, I've walked down Main Street so many times
That I should earn frequent flyer miles
The middle of the night
You won't believe the things I've seen
What is it about this city that keeps me paying rent?
And I go on and on and on and on
And the money's all been spent
My friends have all moved on
I'm sitting on my thrift store couch
Writing the same songs
Something's got to give

There's big trouble in little Gainesville
And I still want to stay
There's big trouble in little Gainesville
And I still want to stay
Cause there's a magnet pulling me
Cause there's a magnet pulling me
Cause there's a magnet pulling me

I know I've had my doubts
But when I look up in the sky, all I want to do is smile
There's something about the sun here that's hard to describe

There's big trouble in little Gainesville
And I still want to stay
There's big trouble in little Gainesville
And I still want to stay
Cause there's a magnet pulling me
Cause there's a magnet pulling me
Cause there's a magnet pulling me

It's getting harder to sleep
When it's eighty-five degrees in the middle of the winter
I'm stuck inside this box
Dead end job
Am I happy here?
