You know
I have to go
Back to the place
I hate the most
Long ago
It used to help me grow
Always kept me feeling safe
From coast to coast.

Lock the gates at night
And don’t set my place
I won’t be back to see
How the snow covers leaves
I counted down the hours
Until I found a shortcut home to you
But I’m just passing through
Barely a guest
A stranger in my own home

I'm back in Toronto, but just 'til tomorrow
That's when the bleeding stops again
Put off all the feelings, forget all the meanings
Just let it cycle through my head
We’re spinning again, the sinning is innocent
Until we realize that we're
Back in Toronto once again

You kicked and screamed
Until you met your defeat
And slammed the door behind me
Where you stood for weeks
I spent all night
Pretending I was alright
I justified, I planned
But I know deep inside
I can’t withstand temptation by your hand

I'm back in Toronto, but just 'til tomorrow
That's when the bleeding stops again
Put off all the feelings, forget all the meanings
Just let it cycle through my head
We’re spinning again, the sinning is innocent
Until we realize that we're
Back in Toronto once again.

Back home, Liberty
Cutting through the park I see
Everything has changed except for me

This place is called home
But I’ve never been so scared
To face the cold, breathe in the truth from the air
This place is called home
But from Kensington to Dee’s,
Everything I pass it plants a seed
And it takes me
Back to a time when all I had
Was a cloud over my head, weights on my feet

This place is called home
But it’s not where I will stay
It’s all temporary
I know I’ll never move away
But I know this city will always feel strange

This city is a stranger to me
