Chicago

lyrics

I think I’m moving to Chicago
I hear the winters there are mighty cold
But I don’t care; I stole your sweater
I’ll build a fire before I play in the snow
Because everything here isn't fine
Everything here’s been gentrified and hipstafied
Forty dollar thrift store shirts; condos and order
Everything costs a buck and nothing’s good with our love
I don’t think I can hang on
Hang on

I realize the potential in us that you don’t see
Partner in crime, here we go again
So shame on me
I can’t find the door
So I’ll leave quiet through the floor boards
You do you
And I’ll do me
You do you
And I’ll do me

I think I’m moving down to Nashville
Hitch up my crazy dog and put him in the car
He’s gonna pant and whine
He’s gonnna bark at other drivers
He’s gonna drool on my arm, and I’ll think
Where have I gone wrong?
But at least he’s good to me, at least he’s faithful
And he knows wherever I am
That’s home
That’s home

I let go of this great idea because
You don’t see
Partner in crime, here we go again
So shame on me
I know I broke your heart
So you’re breaking mine
And all I can say is, why this time?
Why this time?

So I think I’ll move to San Francisco
New York is far too gray
I need Technicolor
I’m gonna shave my head
Find a girlfriend
Plant a garden and learn to paint
I want to make a new dream and I want to see it through
And if you look back you’ll see that’s all I’ve asked of you
That’s all I've asked
That’s all I've asked
That’s all I've asked

I see so much potential in us
Tell me, do you see?
Partner in crime, here we go again
So shame on me
I might not know this story
But I’ll walk the page
As I’m dreaming
Dream of better days
Dreaming, dream of better days
As I’m dreaming
Dream of better days
