I Want My City Back

Friday, April 19th, 2013

Boston’s own Mighty Mighty Bosstones:

Up around 95,
sailing down Storrow Drive,
left exit into Kenmore Square.
Slowed down when I got there,
and that’s when it was crystal clear,
It wasn’t there, it wasn’t where
I left it, when I left it.

I want my city back,
back the way it used to be.
I want it back the way it was.
I looked around and found,
this doesn’t feel like my hometown,
and I don’t like the way it does feel.

Stepped out to take a closer look,
held in with every step I took,
the sadness I felt just to look around.
I looked up to the Citgo Sign,
you used to be a friend of mine.
Do you agree with me at one time,
this was once such sacred ground?

But now I want my city back,
back the way it used to be.
I want it back the way it was.
I looked around and found,
this doesn’t feel like my hometown,
and I don’t like the way it does feel.
