Robert Ellis – Houston lyrics

When I came here I was a boy
And now I'm leaving a man
When I came here I was lost
But now I know who I am

Oh, you helped me understand
You took me by the hand and you showed me how to fight
When I was afraid your lights did not fade
No, they shone through the night

We shared an apartment on the verge of downtown
Two kids so in love but in vain I have found
Well, when our love turned to rust
Then all I could trust was the cover of the blanket in the night
I owe it to you, I would have come unglued
Had it not been for the city and her light

From Houston I'm moving tonight
I've got to pick up and wipe the slate clean
Oh, Houston I'm losing the fight
You remind me of too many things

Well, time takes a toll and your eyes start to change
It puts walls all around a soul and you feel restless and caged
Yes, it's happened to me, I've just got to break free
From the scene and the places I know
I just need a new start, oh, the seas, they must part
I am finally ready to go

From Houston I'm moving tonight
I've got to pick up and wipe the slate clean
Oh, Houston I'm losing the fight
You remind me of too many things

Oh, Houston, I'm moving tonight
But it does not mean that we'll have to part
Oh, Houston this is not goodbye
You will be living inside of my heart

And when I think back on when I called you my home
I will fill up with pride and love
I will not forget all those nights that I spent
How your lights shone so pretty
Just a boy in the city
