I woke up in a hammerin' earthquake
It was the 5:50 train outside
It's hard to get goin' when every mornin'
I start over one more time
Tonight I'll take home take-out
To the vacant life I lead
Then look at faces in crowded places
Searchin' for what I need
This treadmill pace is takin' its toll
I'm all stressed up with nowhere to go

I've reached my city limit
I've gone as far as I can go
Waitin' in line for the daily grind
With nothin' left to show
Out in the sunset's a peaceful life that
Is sittin' there waitin' for me
I've got to start to live it
I've reached my city limit

I grew up on a farm in the Back Bay
Giggin' flounder on Friday nights
My jon boat's live well is full of memories
Reflectin' a simpler time
Daddy rocked his troubles on the front porch
Sayin' silent prayers for the crop
Mama's yellow roses were words unspoken
Expressions of her heart
Last night I dreamed of chasin' fireflies
Then I woke up and realized

(repeat Chorus)

Bought a ticket on an outbound bus, left the city lights behind
There's a sign risin' over the hill, I'll read it one last time

(repeat Chorus)
