Dad said, "It's time to go back to school
Time to go be something like I know you can"
I said, "I'll read every book all the way through
But professors they just don't understand"

'Cause all my life I've dreamt of city lights
I know the chance is small
But I feel like I still got some fight in me
Don't let this take me
I'm not ready
Don't let this take me away
'Cause I'm not ready to give it all up today

Mom said, "It's time to go back to school
You're smart enough to do anything you can"
But I said, "I wanna be more than that
I wanna come back some day with everybody in a trance"

'Cause all my life I've dreamt of city lights
I know the chance is small
But I feel like I still got some fight in me
Don't let this take me
'Cause I'm not ready
Don't let this take me away
'Cause I'm not ready to give it all up today

And it feels so good to be home
But then again it never felt good to be alone
And everything I want will go one way
And everything you love will cause you pain
But it's worth it
To feel okay
