"Born and Raised (Reprise)" as written by and John Mayer....
Now and then I pace my place
I can't retrace how I got here
I cheat and lie to check my fates
It's slightly harder than last year

Then all at once it gets hard to take
It gets hard to fake what I won't be
'Cause one of these days I'll be born and raised
And it's such a waste to grow up lonely

I still have dreams, they're not the same
They don't fly as high as they used to
I saw my friend, he's in my head
And he said, "You don't remember me, do you?"

Then all at once it gets hard to take
It gets hard to fake what I won't be
'Cause one of these days I'll be born and raised
And it's such a waste to grow up lonely

I still got time, I still got faith
I call on both of my brothers
I got a mom, I got a dad
But they do not have each other

So line on up, take your place
And show your face to the morning
'Cause one of these days you'll be born and raised
And it all comes on without warning

    General CommentThese lyrics are the ones for the original 'Born and Raised'. The lyrics for the reprise, as best as I can work out, are as follows:

    Born and raised
    Like SOMETHING streets of grey
    I was brought up on brighter days
    It's good to (sit down?), born and raised

    Born and raised
    In half the time, I'll be twice my age
    Better learn how to turn the page
    'Cause time is strange when you're born and raised

    Born and raised
    Like SOMETHING streets of grey
    I was brought up on brighter days
    It's nice to (sit?), now I'm born and raised
    Now I'm born and raised
    Now I'm born and raised
