You say we're both little people and you like it that way
But in time I'm gonna put this body to shame (and grow old)
Wear a suit like my old man
Pack up all my things and get my a** out of town

We've got it good
Whether you like this town or not
I know it's small but with a big head
It's bound to get hot
In the summer
But the summer is a bummer
If you can't leave
This pathetic excuse for a town

That holds all your memories
A lifetime of crushes and your broken dreams
To be anywhere but here
But baby anywhere is away from me

If you got it all figured out
Then what is there to shout about
This midwest town is gonna miss you
Just go ahead and work it out
But first come on and let it out
Scream and shout and tell everybody that your gonna leave

In about one year you'll have it all figured out
These big city dreams are what you're about
Walking like strangers among these states
Only time will tell how long I can wait

We've got it good
Whether you like this town or not
I know it's small but with a big head
It's bound to get hot
In the summer
But the summer is a bummer
If you can't leave
This pathetic excuse for a town

That holds all your memories
A lifetime of crushes and your broken dreams
To be anywhere but here
But baby anywhere is away from me

If you got it all figured out
Then what is there to shout about
This middle west town is gonna miss you
Just go ahead and work it out
But first come on and let it out
Scream and shout and tell everybody that your gonna leave

Me again oh so casually
Would you take the hit for me or the whole team?

If you got it all figured out
Then what is there to shout about
This middle west town is gonna miss you

    It's about a girl, this guy likes. But she's moving on from a smalltown, to a big city to make her dreams come true. And she really wants to leave, but she's gonna miss everyone in the town. And the whole town will have memories of her. Especially this boy who really likes her. When she moves, she'll have memories of her crushes and broken dreams, the people, and everything elsein the town.
