Alan G. – Don't Wanna Live Here Anymore lyrics

So what is there to say now
Maybe not a lot
On this road that leads me from my town
They slammed the door behind me
Taken all I’ve got
Called me every name and kicked me down

But the Heavens don’t believe
When they say that they love me
I can see right through the lies that pass as creed

But folks ‘round here don’t understand
I’m just bein’ who I am
How can they know just how it feels
To live a life you must conceal

So runnin’ away’s my only plan
Cuz secrets can destroy a man
If I cannot be free to say
All that my heart proves anyway
Then I won’t stay here one more day

What should I hide a secret for
If I can’t open up this door
I don’t wanna live here anymore

So what is there to do now
Maybe not a lot
Goodbye small town, I’m not what you had hoped
It’s really very easy
But people always got
A need to keep the walls that blind them most

Maybe one day I’ll return
Watch this door ripped down and burned
But the truth will be defied until they learn

Cuz folks ‘round here don’t understand
I wanna be the man I am
How can they know just how it feels
To be denied a love that’s real
Livin’ a life you can’t reveal

So runnin’ away’s my only chance
Cuz hatred can destroy a man
If I cannot be free to say
All that my heart proves anyway
Then I won’t stay here one more day

What should I hide a secret for
If I can’t open up this door
I don’t wanna live here anymore
