Verse 1

You would have loved this town.

The peace, the quiet, the subtle shades of green all around.

You would have loved the view.

You can see the stars smile, no city lights to stop you.

Pre chorus 1

You can feel the grass under your feet,

Minutes after you step off the train.

No skyscrapers cluttering the street,

Just the soft breeze and its best friend rain.

Chorus

This town falls asleep before it's nine,

But I've been staying up late,

Trying to pretend I'm doing fine,

And not lying still in wait.

This town doesn't really have much crowd,

But I still search for your face,

Hoping I'd hear your voice, clear and loud,

In this one horse redneck place.

Verse 2

You would have hated the food,

Would have lived off pizza ordered from the neighborhood.

You would have hated the price,

They bring it all in from our city, and it costs thrice.

Pre chorus 2

You can feel your boot get caught in mud,

And drenched in puddles at every turn.

When it rains it makes my dorm floor flood,

And the darn sun makes my skin burn.

Chorus

This town falls asleep before it's nine,

But I've been staying up late,

Trying to pretend I'm doing fine,

And not lying still in wait.

This town doesn't really have much crowd,

But I still search for your face,

Hoping I'd hear your voice, clear and loud,

In this one horse redneck place.
