  • I was born 3000 miles from where I came alive
    And I left without saying a word to start a new life

    But sometimes in some random bar
    It'll cut through the noise
    Like a breeze in the summer heat
    Like an old friend's voice
    A boston accent

    Well my brother he got kicked out of school
    Yeah my mom threw him out
    And my sister she lives three streets over
    And two houses down
    And my father is buried in town
    By his father's side
    And me I spent my whole damn life
    Just trying to hide a boston accent

    Moving through the crowd
    On that first night
    Lit like angels
    By the citgo sign
    We walked across the bridge
    Just to kill some more time
    Before you had to go home

    Now you live in a pretty nice house
    Out on Paul Revere road
    And you married some kid from our class
    Who I didn't know
    And I saw you at christmas mass
    And you still looked the same
    I could almost
    Feel your hands in my hair
    And you whisper my name
    In a boston accent

    We're moving through the crowd
    On that first night
    Lit like angels by the citgo sign
    We walked across the bridge
    Just to kill some more time
    Before you had to go home

    Now there are doors you can't open
    And some you can't close
    And my sister she's getting married in june
    But I don't think I'll go

    And sometimes in some random bar
    It'll cut through the noise
    Like a breeze in the summer heat
    Like an old friend's voice
    And you can change every inch of your life
    But your still just a boy

    With a Boston Accent

    La di di da
