  • You're the home state I'm a native
    Midnight blue in the pavement
    Over my head ya hanging on
    Like shoes on a wire
    Frayed at the laces, time lies heavy
    On a bar set high

    As a glacier melts within
    The same ocean he was raised up in

    But I was 9 to 5 and no part time
    And livin' up 10 stories high
    And I saw no, no replica
    Oh I saw ya with, no replica
    And I still don't.

    I'm the home state ya immigrated
    Blue jean blue faded
    How'd ya get in my system again?

    Like the curse of the Cubs
    Loyal blood is hard won
    On a fence you can't climb

    Heard a glacier crack within
    The same ocean he was raised up in

    But I was 9 to 5 and no part time
    And livin' up 10 stories high
    And I saw no, no replica
    Oh I saw ya with, no replica

    And the apple fell so close to a tree with fruit too sweet
    Yeah that's what ya told me
    When I was 9 to 5 and no part time
    Saw a Madame Tussauds in the light
    Said, that ain't no, no replica
    No it ain't no, no replica

    But I was 9 to 5 and no part time
    And livin' up 10 stories high
    And I saw no, no replica
    Oh I saw ya with, no replica
    And still don't
    No I still don't
    Shoulda told ya last night
