lyrics

I miss the Turnpike
I miss always being right
And feeling so sure of everything
I miss the diners
You know there’s nothin’ finer
Than a plate of greasy eggs and coffee served with a wink

Oh I, don’t wanna live there now
But I, miss my hometown

I miss the boardwalk
The way that boy talked
He smelled like the ocean, tasted like cigarettes
Wish I could see my friends
Living the dreams we dreamt
Two dogs, two kids, a mortgage instead of rent

Oh I, don’t wanna live there now
But I, miss my hometown

I miss the trains
They treat us all the same
On the five o’clock, drink what you want in a brown paper bag
Sometimes I miss the candor
Down here it’s all manners
Where I come from, people mean what they say

Oh I, don’t wanna live there now
But I, miss my hometown
It’s the hard way they talk and their easy frowns
Oh I miss my home
It’s the hard way they talk and their easy frowns
Oh I miss my hometown
