No one knows,
What's waitin' where you go,
Nothing's certain but the fact that you're leavin';
Still you roam,
From the straight and narrow road,
Ridin' nothin' but the lies that you believe in.

Frame after frame,
The pictures all remain,
Photographs of all the hearts you've broken;
Frozen in time,
Are the ghosts you left behind,
Waitin' for the words you left unspoken.

Oh, no, no.

Dear home town,
I never meant to let you down,
When I sold my soul for a song;
Dreams are to blame,
They still linger and remain,
In the heart of a child who's been gone,
Dear home town.

Tell the girl,
It's a wide and wondrous world,
There's room enough to leave a life you're hating;
The highway runs both ways,
And there's seats left on the train,
And if you take it to the station I'll be waiting.

Oh, no, no.

Dear home town,
I never meant to let you down,
When I sold my soul for a song;
Dreams are to blame,
They still linger and remain,
In the heart of a child who's been gone,
Dear home town.

Tell my mom,
I miss her lovin' smile,
And tell my father I really miss his laughter;
Tell my sisters and my brothers,
Tell my friends and all the others,
That we'll meet in the sweetest hereafter.

Oh, no, no, no, no, no, no.

Dear home town,
I never meant to let you down,
When I sold my soul for a song;
Dreams are to blame,
They still linger and remain,
In the heart of a child who's been gone.
Dear home town,
I never meant to let you down,
When I sold my soul for a song;
Dreams are to blame,
They still linger and remain,
In the heart of a child who's been gone,
Dear home town.

Dear home town.
