Song Description

small town girl reflecting on living in a big city and how to stay herself and not become hardened

Story Behind the Song

written on an airplane headed back to new york after amy's trip home for the holidays

Lyrics

Landed her 100 years ago didn’t know where they were gonna go
And some moved westward and onward and to the heartland,
and some never made it out of the city
100 years later we go wherever we want, we drive fancy cars to restaurants
and complain and complain and complain and say we hate it
like it’s somebody else’s life and they made it

15000 feet above the ground, she’s in an airplane, she’s in an airplane
825 days living downtown he dies alone in his room
and the love of her life is fifteen hours away, holding down the fort she calls home
and as the plane hits the runway in new york she’s all alone again

Small town girl, small town girl
Livin in a big, livin in a big city
Watcha gonna do, watcha gonna do now?
You better hold on, hold on tight, and keep her safe for just one night, for just one night.

People say she’s strange because she talks to stangers, and they do not understand
That the silence is stranger than any conversation she has ever had, and he says
They’re gonna break you they’re gonna break you because you smile too much
They’re gonna hate you they’re gonna hate you because you’re not as tough as them

Small town girl, small town girl
Livin in a big, livin in a big city
Watcha gonna do, watcha gonna do now?
You better hold on, hold on tight, and keep her safe for just one night, for just one night.

You better hold on, hold on tight, Watcha gonna do
You better hold on, hold on tight, Watcha gonna do now?
