The city is so cold
A place to be alone
This is where I live
But it's not my home
A million people here
And no one knows your name
I want to see the sky
I've got to get away

Got to get back home
Back to Western Springs
Where the streets are safe
And the grass is green

There's Mom and Dad
Waiting at the door
Refrigerator's full
Go and help yourself
Neighbor's stop on by
And ask you how you've been
I guess I'm doing fine
Now I'm back again

It's good to be back home
Back in Western Springs
Where the sky is blue
And the grass is green
