We lock the doors at night all the sirens scream 
I don't drive my car insurance is too high 
I live here in the city my home town is far away 
I work out with concrete I don't drive my car 
The stars come out at night to see them on the strip 
Everybody arms themselves there's no other place like this 
I'll never leave the small town girl behind 
The place were I come from is with me all the time 
You could walk the streets when the sun goes down 
In my little town 
You don't need defenses when the sun goes down 
In my little town 
Back home on the street after ten at night 
Mrs. Avery walks her dog, checks to see what's going on 
She doesn't lock the door, she lives here in good heath 
You don't hear the harm when Mrs. Avery walks her dog 
All I every wanted was a view of city lights 
Break away from here, leave behind the quiet nights 
Spend half your life trying to make a change 
And the other half trying to get back again 
You could walk the streets when the sun goes down 
In my little town 
You don't need defenses when the sun goes down 
In my little town
