lyrics

This town never shuts down
Troubles always hanging 'round,
And I'm tired of waiting for the lights to burn out
Walking down these dirty streets
My hearts turned cold as concrete
And I don't think I'll ever be the same

I keep telling myself, tomorrow things will change
Its time for me to wake up, tomorrows become today

So maybe I'll go home to Houston
Or San Antone ain't far away
I'll be moving on, I guess I stayed a little to long
I never liked Austin anyway

I guess I knew from the start
This all would fall apart
And I'm tired of waiting for the flame to burn out
Living in a faded dream
Getting bored with our routine
And I don't think, I'll ever be the same

You can call if foolish, you can call it lame
You can call me lonesome, you can call me the one to blame

So maybe I'll go home to Houston
Or San Antone ain't far away
I'll be moving on, I guess I stayed a little to long
I never liked Austin anyway

This town will build you up just to break you down.
Through the music and the noise your breaking heart is the only sound you'll hear
Its life on thirty five, man you never get nowhere until you're out of town
And you can put the hammer down

So go on home to Houston
Some friends in San Antone say they've got a couch where I can lay my head
I'll be moving on, I guess I stayed a little to long
I never liked Austin anyway
