I hear it’s really beautiful there,
I bet people say it all the time,
when you mention where you’re from,
when they’re asking what it’s like

And no it doesn’t hurt, that you smell like lavender,
and your accent’s like a ticket for a ride

and I’m not one of those, to get caught on a loose end
but you look like a knot that’s come untied

I bet your life there is so different, what do you think of it here?
Do you hate that question, god I’m so predictable.

It’s just not that easy to answer, I miss my family
I came here because I had to, back home I couldn’t breathe
I miss the cobbles on the beach, I miss the rose in mama’s cheeks
I sailed here on a ship of memory
And all the bricks of thought I brought, they start to make a wall
Till memory’s a house that keeps me dry

So it might be hard to see, all the reasons underneath
Leaving somewhere beautiful to go try and be free

But if you feel like going somewhere that you never want to leave,
You should try being in your company

I wish I could remember when I last took a vacation
That’s the word you all use for holiday
I never seem to rest, I never seem to breathe
Memory, the push of a soft breeze
Refreshed and reborn, every silver morn
Awake into the rays of memory
