James Griffin – Going Back To Boston lyrics

Going back to Boston
Cause I need a change of season
And I can't believe the reason
Why I came
So far away from New England
Where the winter leaves are fallin'
For I hear a different callin'
Than I found here in L. A.

So take me home now
And I'll start all over again
With family and friends
I'll have to tell them that she's gone
Gone gone
But she's wrong, wrong, wrong
For movin on
And I need a change of weather now
To get myself together
Cause she's gone, gone, gone

After graduation
On the first week of vacation
I met her on Nantucket in the spring
That's when I followed her out west
But then I guess you know the rest
And now I'm goin' back to Boston
Where I understand the game

So take me home now
Cause there's nothin' for me here
She made it pretty clear
When I woke up to find her gone
Gone gone
But she's wrong, wrong, wrong
For movin on
And the Southern California sun
Is not enough to warm you
When she's gone, gone, gone
