My Little Town
by Meredith Brooks



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
