lyrics

It’s gotta be on the ocean
One I don’t have to sneak in
With a neighborhood I’d be proud to call my home
Clashing cultures, real diversity
A place where white people won’t ask to touch my hair when it gets long

While I’m hearing dreaming too big
Less dad jeans, more drag queens
And 24/7 take out’s a requirement
While I’m here dreaming too big
More adventure, less pretenders
Whose idea of fun is going to the mall

And there have to be trees
Wilderness around the city
I love the night life
But sometimes you gotta get away to rivers and mountain expanses
And it’s gotta be miles away from any midwest suburb or southern bay
Where I’ll never again have to step food in Mississippi or Kansas

And while I’m here dreaming too big
I’d love to live on the east coast
Living cheap though I know those 2 birds are hard to kill
Am I really dreaming too big?
There’s nothing holding me back but myself
If I don’t do this now, I never will

If you want to go then go if you think that’s right for you
If you want to go then go, just know where you’ll end up and what you’ll do
If you want to go then go if you think that’s right for you
Well I want to go so I’ll go

So I’m heading out and I’m a bit nervous
Everything that I know is here
But deep down I know it’s worth it
What’s a little adventure without some fear?
