  • You threw your books into the river
    Told your mom that you're a nonbeliever
    She says she wasn't surprised but that doesn't make it ok

    You say nobody loves a city
    Nobody loves what can't love 'em back
    One-way ticket in your pocket
    What happened to the charm of a small town?

    If you find what you're looking for
    Be sure to send a postcard
    You promised you'd never forget
    The little ones when you got big

    You deal an unspoken debt
    No kindness without wanting something back
    What do I owe you? What did I forget?
    Or are we even after all of that?

    You shook my hand and said goodbye
    You'll never let me see you cry again
    What good has come from learning to pretend?
    You said I could've been a better friend

    If you find what you're looking for
    Be sure to send a new address
    And if you find what you're looking for
    Write a letter and tell us what it is, and tell us what it is

    Everybody else, everybody else looks like they've figured it out
    Everybody else, everybody else looks like they've figured it out
    Everybody else, everybody else looks like they've figured it out
    Everybody else, everybody else looks like they've figured it out Writer/s: Lucy Dacus
