A somewhat sentimental, noninclusive song about moving

(pretend the noise in the background is the beach...)


I traded shores and sunny skies
laid back beachy paradise
arms open wide, saying, "we're always here
so follow your dreams, my dear"

stepped out in the jungle of concrete
filled my lungs with grit and childhood dreams
so much to discover, so much to be seen
there's something here waiting for me

new york, new york, I'm under your spell
won't be living anywhere else
you're the city of my dreams
in new york city, I am free

walked to the greenmarket in the pouring rain
the old man sang "moon river" on the downtown 6 train
the quiet, the chaos all seem to agree
there's something here waiting for me


new york, new york, I've come undone
giving you my everything
all this time and how can it be
I've been chasing empty dreams

is it such a bad thing
if mine is a hometown dream
can't help what I'm wanting
mine is a hometown dream

when you're california, born and bred
there's no getting away from it
go as far and wide as you'd like
to end up right where you started

california, what can I say
oh, when at the end of the day
when I'm feeling all alone
you're my home away from Home
you're my home away from Home
