I'm gonna need you to raise your glass
I don't care what you put in it
Here's to nights that you can't take back
We live hard but we love to laugh

We all thought that we'd get rich fast
Hop the plane out for greener grass
Found out the green is cash
Don't compare to the friends that last

See, we won't forget where we came from
The city won't change us
We beat to the same drum
No, we won't forget where we came from
The city can't change us
We beat to the same drum, the same drum

(Hey!)
La-dah-dah-dah-dah-dah-dah-dah
La-dah-dah-dah-dah-dah-dah-doe
(Hey!)
And no matter where we go
We always find our way back home
[x2]

So here's to the cheap sunglasses
Redbull and minivans and
People who had your back when
The world didn't understand

See, we won't forget where we came from
The city won't change us
We beat to the same drum
No, we won't forget where we came from
The city can't change us
We beat to the same drum, the same drum

(Hey!)
La-dah-dah-dah-dah-dah-dah-dah
La-dah-dah-dah-dah-dah-dah-doe
(Hey!)
And no matter where we go
We always find our way back home
[x2]

When ties loosen
We're losin' touch
And fading away
We'll still be raising our cups
To the same damn things

Oh no, the city won't change us [x4]
Won't change us (Hey!)

La-dah-dah-dah-dah-dah-dah-dah
La-dah-dah-dah-dah-dah-dah-doe
And no matter where we go
We always find our way back home
[x3]

(Hey!)
We always find our way back home
Yeah, we always find our way back home

    The way I interpret it is that we all Graduate from High School or college with high hopes. And over time our hopes diminish when life kicks in and we end up working whatever jobs we have. And when over time your friends go away and you lose contact with them. However the memories with those friends never go away and you'll never forget them.

    Also no matter where you end up in life, you never forget your friends or where you came friend because no city or place will never change you or at least it should.
