Woke up at six AM
It's pouring rain
Vancouver Skyline calls my name
Answer the telephone
Waste of time
I can't wait to leave this place again

"What're you going to do this time?
what're you going to say this time?
Who are you going to do this time?
Where are you going to play this time?"

I'll be back in a couple of months

I cracked the shell and left the dumb, shy boy behind me
"Oh yeah, it's good to be home"
Pulling strangers closer to hips
"Oh yeah, it's good to be home"
I found out who I really was in a bed in another city
"Oh yeah, it's good to be home"
Lipgloss on my neck
Smike on my lips
"Oh yeah, it's good to be home"

How can you say to me, "oh yeah, it's good to be home"
where I can't relate to anything
Rain city laughs right in my face
Rain city means nothing if all of this comes with it
I think that I could say, "oh yeah, it's good to be home"
if you were all dead and the city was mine

I remember I couldn't stand that look in my mother's eyes when I went up and said "mother, oh mother I'm leaving home", and I watched her wash those tears away
"Yoy're leaving home?"

City of Vancouver: my torrid love affair with the city i was born in
I can talk shit because she's mine

Home is Vancouver
