Born and raised in the windy city
I moved West to kickstart a dream
What I found was a town without pity
That抣l chew you up and swallow you clean

I抦 amazed at the life I抦 livin?br> Don抰 want to seem like I抦 rockin?the boat
But it ain抰 all about taking but giving
I feel something tuggin?at my coat
No one ever told me it would be like this
That there抎 be something called home
That抯 too hard to miss

I抦 saying goodbye to the glamour
Back to the old neighborhood
All that I need is a place I can breathe
I抦 saying goodbye to Hollywood

Done my time in the hoodoo jungle
Tired of waking up in another man抯 dream
I抳e got the ball and I ain抰 gonna fumble
Gonna make a winner of this team
All that ever mattered were the goals I chased
Now I抦 ready to run in the human race

I抦 saying goodbye to the glamour
Life never tasted so good
All that I need is a place I can breathe
I抦 saying goodbye to Hollywood

Me and the Mrs. Done made up our minds
Were gonna give our boys a little less sunshine
Call it runnin?say what you like
I抳e got my own definition of paradise
I抎 rather be knee deep in snow
Than knee deep in jive
I may be cold but my soul is alive

I抦 saying goodbye to the glamour
Back to the old neighborhood
All I need is a place I can breathe
I抦 saying goodbye to Hollywood
