I know we've all found new air to breathe, and now my body feels smaller in big cities. It's looking more foreign every week; they built some buildings downtown where it once was green.
Now I know how my mom feels when I'm gone for a while - she says "your face has grown thin with your sharpened smile". Because the roads are now coloured brick red; the image changing the memories inside my head.
I spent last night playing Real Friends alone in my room. I didn't think I'd relate so much, so soon. But I'm certain that this place is changing - yeah I'm certain that this place is changing.
I lived my life in this city for 15 years. We shared our growing pains, though we felt no fear. And I still clearly remember that bench under trees where I shared my stories; I hope it's still there now.
I didn't think I would miss my old room this much - the outdated posters, the ticket stubs. But I'm certain that this place is changing - yeah I'm certain that this place is changing.
The boy in my head's wishing for nothing to ever change, but I know that for progress to start, things just can't stay the same.
