  • Lyrics
  • This song concerns singer Conrad Keely's move to New York City from the isolation of Austin, Texas. He explained to The Skinny: "It's specifically about my experience moving away from Austin, Texas. I lived in Austin for 13 years and recently moved to New York City. I didn't leave because I hated it, I loved it but I wanted to grow. This is about saying goodbye to the wonderful time I had there while facing the future with fortitude."
