GOTTA GET OUTTA THIS PLACE


Why don't you prove them wrong

I'm saying now

what I said back then

THAT this whole town

always held you down


You can do better

you just have to start

It's easier to be yourself and leave

than to play the part


I gotta get outta this place

I gotta leave town

Same old fools

on that same old merry go 'round

Small bars and rusted cars 

Demolitions and reconstruction 

New hope and one more joke about living here

Everything come and everything goes

but it's always the same 

I'm not saying I don't like it that way 

I'm just saying every now and then 

I gotta get outta this place


I hope you prove them wrong

someday they'll know

I won't say how

I told you so

while tall poppies grow


You can do better

you just have to start

it's easier to be yourself and leave

than to play the part 


I gotta get outta this place

I gotta leave town

Same old fools

on that same old merry go 'round

Small bars and rusted cars 

Demolitions and reconstruction 

New hope and one more joke about living here

Everything come and everything goes

but it's always the same 

I'm not saying I don't like it that way 

I'm just saying every now and then 

I gotta get outta this place

I gotta get out

I gotta get out

I gotta get out
