Boston - Lyrics

Age five, I wanted to move to Boston
So I wouldn't feel lost and forgotten
I could be a star, like that girl, Zoe
Singing the zip code on all the TVs

Being far away and out of reach
Too young to practice what I preach
I waited 'til I was older and popping
So I could move to Boston

Age ten, I wanted to move to Boston
That PBS show, I'd almost forgotten
Looked up auditions, just to discover
That it's filming days were already over

Moving on seemed like giving up
So I tried to stir up quite a fuss
Spamming them with little to no responses
Thought I'll never move to Boston

Next year, I kept saying hello to Boston
It seemed that my whole message was lost in...
The noise, but then, a miracle happened
Marcy zoomed off and sent me a message

Told me their goals weren't over yet
Change came in a new show called Fetch
I liked it more, and thought, this is awesome
Can't wait to move to Boston

But as I grew older, things start to change
My dreams were no longer the same
But still, they seemed ever out of reach

Kept some of the best parts of me alive
But heartbreak made parts of me die
I try to practice what I preach
And save my broken dreams

Grown up now, I still think about Boston
'Cause it seems sometimes, I'm always forgotten
Others simply won't give me a chance
But I'm just a flawed, imperfect man

I'll try to push on another day
Wisconsin's home, so here I stay
But I wonder what it would be like, often
To just leave everything I know
And begin again in Boston
