Oh Chicago

Story Behind The Song

I left Chicago to find my fortune in Hollywood as a musician, but about 4 months after I arrived, my ex and her new boyfriend decided they were going to run off and raise my son with me out of the picture. My heart broke. I was so alone and broken and went into a depression that lasted years. ...Jesus, my life is a friggin sob story.

I'd give all of my money and everything I have
To turn the clouds into sun and keep the good from the bad
Everyone I love, everything that's true
That's all that I want, and all I want to do

Oh Chicago

When I think about things I cannot see
Away from you my heart breaks in me
All of the time, all of the places
All of the love in all of the faces

Oh Chicago

Oh the painful frustration of paving my way
I've got to go on now but it takes me away
All of the phone calls, all of the photographs
All of these bare walls, all of it drives me mad

Oh Chicago
