My Little Town
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
