And I sing songs about the past.
How I was raised and I was thrown out on my ass.
Cause I didn't care about going to school.

And I saw the look in her eyes.
My mother nearly cried when I had told her that I wanted to go,
Just to prove them wrong.

I've been smoking cigarettes since I was only fourteen.
Just to find an escape from this town that was so mean to me.

And I sing songs about my friends,
The way we grew up and all the loose ends we used to laugh.
Cause we didn't give a damn.

And I saw the look in my brother's eyes.
When I told him I was leaving,
He couldn't help but despise me.
He's wanted out his whole life.

I've been smoking the green since I was merely sixteen.
Just to find an escape from this town that was so mean to me.

And I sing songs about the past.

I plea for relief.
This town won't recede all the things that I want, the things that I need.
And I'll beg and I'll beg.
I'm down on my knees.
Momma, oh momma, let me please leave.

I plea for relief.
This town won't recede all the things that I want, the things that I need.
And I'll beg.

All I ever wanted was love.

    This song is so sad it makes you rethink every aspect within the wrongs and the rights of your life and all the things you could've done and the things you shouldn't have

    The meaning to the sond, in my opinion, was of what happened in christofer drew's life. In a way my life is exactly the same, except im trying hard in school so i can get out of my town and away from the people here. I can relate extremly to this song and with othr songs he had created. It's a shame he's getting bored of nevershoutnever!
