lyrics

I carry 'round my heart, through the city streets and parks
It feels heavy in the snow, I keep it out so people know
the city bested me.

Metal figures block the sky, I tilt my head and squint my eyes
All at once it gets to me, who ever knew that being free
could dismantle me?

I wish I was in Florida where the people aren't as mean
I'm sick of hiding in the city fulfilling someone elses dreams
if I crack from all the pressure then you'll never get to measure
what I'm worth to you, cause I'm worthless it seems
Cause I want to be in Florida, I wish I was in Florida

New England broke my heart, so I decided to depart
To where a drinking habit's cheap, and all the liars and the creeps
Are the company I keep

Cause now I'm back in Florida and the sunshine warms my heart
I'll take it easy for awhile and fix my lost and broken parts
I'll lay around, I'll paint the town, and maybe now I'll get it right
this time around, get myself off the ground
Cause now I'm back in Florida, now I'm back in Florida

I keep growing, growing down, my roots are deep into the soil
I grew down and out, not up and out, and started to recoil
from who I'm meant to be. That's all lost on me

Cause now I'm stuck in Florida where the people never die
They cling to live and to each other just like lovebugs in July
and I'll continue drinking so I don't have to keep thinking about going back
cause it's much too late for that
Now I'm stuck in Florida, now I'm stuck in Florida

Please get me out of Florida
