My brother’s city crawling,
gonna stake his own
My mama shelter’s cross the country
saying babes come on home
My father’s counting a fortune
more than he’s ever known
The eyes that blamed the distance of the ocean
stopped saying honey come ah come on

The pressure lies within the pride that’s losing some
The time I spend on other lives becomes less fun
I thank the luck I’ve always had in starting up
but I got half a mind to move away and give it up

Got some loving arms holding me tight
some right that came from the wrong
Your smoking eyes put a worry in me
I’d like to see you feel at home
Got a letter from beautiful Sara
saying she’s feeling awfully down
moving around from place to place
chin up while she’s saving face
but I don’t like the thought of her walking around the city crying

The pressure lies within the pride that’s losing some
The time I spend on other lives becomes less fun
I thank the luck I’ve always had starting up
but I got half a mind to move away and give it up
