Well we thought we were good at being cool.
And we thought we had learned how to live like men
Drinking beer on the back porch
Smoking blues one after another
Calling out to the pretty babies
Dancing out under them street lights
Praying to whatever Gods we had
Honey don’t let me be alone again tonight

Yeah as much as we love this town
Hell it ain't always that way
bringing right us back down

And I had my eye on a pretty girl
Once in a while she was looking back at me
She’d come and go like the CTA
Every time I had her I thought she’d stay
Lost her Daddy when she was young
I’d get close but in the morning she’d be gone
Told me I reminded her of him
Bet she tells all the other boys the same damn thing

Yeah as much as we love this town
Hell it ain't always that way
Bringing us right back down

Yeah as much as we love this town
Hell it ain’t always that way
Bringing us right back down

Yeah well you go your way
And I’ll go mine
Drive down the coast for the summer
Midwestern boys out on our own
Headed for a life of treasure
Two-Hearted Ale running through my veins
Thoughts of this room running through this brain
Heading out when the morning comes
And brother it’s been a good run

Well them late night talks probably saved our lives
Looking up at that Illinois Sky
Oh that Illinois sky
That Illinois sky
That Illinois sky
