I am a cinematographer
I am a cinematographer
I am a cinematographer
I am a cinematographer
And I walked away from New York City
And I walked away from everything that's good
And I walked away from everything I leaned on
Only to find it's made of wood
I was a big ol' bear once
I was a big ol' bear once
I was a big ol' bear once
I was a big ol' bear once
And I walked away from California
And I walked away from everything that's known
And I walked away from everything I lived for
Only to find that everything had grown
I am a cinematographer
I am a cinematographer
I am a cinematographer
I am a cinematographer
If you were alone
You can walk away from Louisville alone

    think it may be "And I walked away from everything that shone," rather than "everything that's known"...

    I picture the speaker as a pretentious starving artist who thinks they are entitled to success and blames their failure on everyone else. Sympathetic in a way but also a narcissistic jerk.
